i've been given a 5 point infraction for my post in this thread - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...26#post4502226
reason given: "This post is designed to inflame"
though my intent might have been misunderstood, the post was designed as humor. the thread got closed and it was in the backyard. (i think i've said worse things in these forums without being given an infraction.) i understand if you thought the joke was in poor taste. i'm just saying that the punishment might be a bit on the overkill side.
