Silly me. I thought I qualified as a user by having Fedora installed
and running on my machine 24/7. I guess I'll have to go back and search
the Red Hat website and find the official definition of user.

Silly me, again. I thought the forum was for discussion of issues
affecting Fedora releases.

And they will not consider it broken until such time as users get
together and petition for that. And users can't rally unless they
have a forum and discussion about it, can they?

I have mentioned that I don't like the tone of the thread. But that
doesn't mean that all who are concerned with the future of Linux
can't discuss this issue, and perhaps find a recommended approach
to resolving this issue, and go to the developers with it.
Just to dismiss a complaint because it is presented in an obnoxious
manner is to throw out the baby with the wash.

Who appointed you moderator? I guess I'll have to go back to the Red
Hat website and reread the moderator list.
This message made from 100% recycled bits.
You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
