    Too true. The glory days were nice. I've seen a ton of Facebook groups catered to Ubuntu and other distros. I didn't stay in them long as the constant "how to hack?" questions were too irritating.

    My biggest complaint is not with the Forums themselves, but with rude posters who ask a question and then disappear. I never know whether they even read my replies, much less whether the suggestions I gave solved their problem. Sometimes it can take me ten to twenty minutes to compose a reply. Not getting even a thank-you is annoying.

    For instance, https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2425125

    or https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2424969

    or https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2424598

    Sadly, even the exhortation in my signature does not seem to work for some people.

    FB doesn't check IDs, lol. Many of them were grown men who were thinking Linux made people hackers. The cyrbersecurity groups were even worse.

    "Oh, never mind. I found the solution. You can close this thread."

    Very, very considerate of you to NOT provide the solution you found so that the next person has to go through the pain of finding a solution. Selfish much?
