They are for IDEAL improvement. As you know everyone has their own IDEALs of what is perfect and what is not. If I were wrong about this, then there would be no arguement between anybody about anything, because it would be all black and white. But as U should already know, the world has gray and many many lovely shades of gray giving everyone their own opinions. Now that this argument is over, please begin to understand the forums are not for looking down at one another, but to help and make suggestions. Please do NOT tell anyone that their opinion is stupid, just humbly say that U do not agree, because..... and make sure that those reasons U list are valid points, not just your own selfish thoughts. Think of the community. Linux would have never gotten as far as it has if it hadn't been freely open to suggestions and improvements.
I'll keep your condescending thoughts in mind next time I "think of the community" by answering someone's questions elsewhere on the forums (or otherwise). I made no beef with his suggestions - I simply commented that he worded the whole thing in a very ridiculous manor. Forget I ever said anything on these forums, sorry I made any comment anywhere, I'll sit in my corner and do my own thing rather then try to help people - it's easier anyway. You might have a high post count, and I have no idea what your background is, but based on your comment, mMay be you need to learn proper forum etiquette. Did you even looked at my post history before making such a comment?
Read the first thing I said in this thread, "This seems very little like a list of general suggestions to improve the distro, so much as what someone personally wants. Everyone wants something different, and it doesn't take long to emerge extra apps you might like (such as thunderbird, or koffice)...."
I continued to show that he obviously did no research what-so-ever with regard to his other questions.
Now tell me... how is that suggesting that what he says isn't right for him? I meerly pointed out exactly what you seem to be arguing about - that these are his opinions, and don't seem like reasonable suggestions for the distro.
Did you even read the entire thread before hopping in here and making your own assumptions? Like I said, if this is the attitude people are going to take on this forum, then good riddance - maybe moab needs to learn how to answer his own questions first, before posting...
