I've just been banned from the Fedora Forums [1]. 

I've been asking users with PackageKit bugs to report them upstream on
the mailing list or in bugzilla, explaining what common error messages
mean, and how to fix other problems.
This, it turns out isn't what the forums are for. I guess it’s just for
uniformed users telling less informed users how to "fix" things. My

I won't be even reading the forums anymore, and consider the couple of
hours I spent on the forums answering questions and educating users
about PackageKit wasted.
These are all the posts I’ve made on the forum if you want to check any
of my messages:

A few of them are pretty blunt, but the personal critique of my skills
as a programmer [2] and PackageKit is pretty blunt too (especially by a
"Community Manager").

Advice to developers: Don't bother.
