We do have a motto in Fedora. Freedom, Friends, Features, First.
Now, in my book, if you manage to annoy people that much, that they

violating two of our core principals, namely Freedom and Friends.
So, I will repeat! We need to substantiate why people have become
the Fedora Ambassador Programme. So, contact those people
in a friendly manner, asking them if they would mind participating in an
anonymous survey, as to why they are no longer active in the ambassadors
group. I suggest a Fedora Election based system, with a questionnaire. This
will not only save the Mentors and FAMSCO people from having to deal with
100s of cases of inactive members, but would also get to the bottom of the
Using pesticide on a field that has no pests, is a bit silly. So, find

wrong. If 35 out of 50 people become inactive and the remainder
becomes disgruntled, there clearly is an issue there. And I am not only

are you going to make the ambassadors programme better ?
Appeasing the few and disgruntling the many is not a good method in
Fedora Contributor numbers.
I think Pierre makes a valid point, when he mentions different cultural
backgrounds. So, maybe it should be made clear that people should not take
this that serious and have FUN (remember now: Freedom and Friends)! You can
have plenty of aggro doing your day job or stress from your education. Not
many people will be turned on by hassle coming from their leisurely
Ok so you think I'm the imbecile and probably also unethical and beyond the
conduct of an ambassador.
I don't have nothing against anyone, I accept different opinions if they
are kept within the verbal limits.
You mentioned our 4 foundations, and that is why I'm here, but I don't
acccept being offended by anyone.
