    Was that yet another veiled threat?

    Ok, this is not about a Vista promotional thread. This is about you creating such a thread in apparent protest of a decision made by a Forum Councilman. We welcome discussions on both Vista and Apple -- there is no double-standard here.

    If your Vista thread weren't created in close correlation with a Forum Council decision to not close the Apple thread as you requested, then you wouldn't have received an infraction and the thread would be open.


    Also, I don't see any Vista launches in the news today.

    It is nothing to do with what I think about Apple, it is everything to do with the endless threads saying how great Apple are in a forum for and about a GNU/Linux distro. I do not understand how you continue to fail see the significance.

    If there is such a demand for people to advertise Apple products, then open a new forum for them or offer Apple banner space, at least I (and others) can then avoid them by either turning on adblock of not seeing the threads in Cafe because they are sandboxed elsewhere.

    Would you like the following stopped as well

    Windows
    Logitec
    Mercedes cars
    Ford cars
    Heinz
    Mattel
    Sony
    Niintendo
    Jockey


    I make this list tongue in check to show a point .

    Now isnt Linux about freedom of choice ?
    Then surely that freedom extends to the members being free to choose what they with to purchase of to discuss?

    But maybe its a valid point that we create a hardware section similar to other OS talk

    No. It wasn't veiled at all.

    I am telling you that you can either learn to post according to the Forums Code of Conduct or we can escort you out. This is the same as every other user, the overwhelming majority of whom are wonderful people who never give the slightest rise to accusation of trolling and never directly insult staff members for any reason whatsoever.

    Give me evidence that your behavior is warranted, or be quiet. Otherwise, you will have severe problems with me.

    A bit hypocritical to be making threats at others then throwing down the flag at others, isn't it?

    Jdong, you know me well, you also know I respect you.

    There should be no "spam" of Apple or any other proprietary products in Cafe or any of the other forums on this board. It goes against the very principles behind Ubuntu.

    And no member of staff should ever be permitted to threaten and try to intimidate users with their "I am an admin and forum council member" card. KiwiNZ claims I should respect him because of his position, this is not true, respect needs to be earned, it is not something granted unconditionally because you become a forum admin. Forum admins are not faultless, they are perfectly capable of being wrong, and in this case, I believe KiwiNZ was wrong and abused his position.

    I haven't threatened anyone. He said he could be a great foe, which is why I questioned whether or not it was a threat.

    It is not in the spirit of Ubuntu to limit discussion to only open source products, and not in the guidelines of the channel. I don't think there is anything wrong with discussing proprietary products on these forums.

    I fail to see how "I am buying one" as the first post of a thread titled Wow Ipod Touch!!!! (or whatever the exact wording was) is an attempt at discussion. To me it came across as nothing short of spam.
