I didn't really mind so much when the Well-Intentioned Troll thread got unstickied. It wasn't really serving its purpose (letting well-intentioned trolls know we've heard it all before), the discussion was meandering, and the moderator who unstickied it explained why.
But I have to say I'm disappointed that not only was Is Ubuntu for You? now unstickied, but there was no explanation offered as to why it was unstickied.
I believe that thread serves a purpose, and if you look at the follow-up remarks, it's a very encouraging thing to see--and it probably won't happen if it gets buried in the back of the Absolute Beginner forum.
Well, the forum moderators can do as they see fit, obviously, but at least an explanation would be appropriate. Thanks for your time.
