Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think we all can agree and I support this, but please don't post about political issues as in many cases the opinion is split

Well... in fairness he posted in "Random" which is the only sub-forum on linuxmint.com dedicated to off-topic discussions and things not related to Linux.... we could argue we should stick to technology but GNU/Linux is also about freedom (political freedom in the case of the FSF actually).

Plus, it's not a controversial topic (like death-penalty, abortion or the fact that Italy won the World Cup on penalties....), almost everybody here will agree with the poster about what's going on in Burma.

.. or shall we say Myanmar?

I realized I never asked myself before why the name of that country had changed, here's an interesting article on this:

No he didn't. It was originally posted in the "Announcements" section. I moved it here.

Oh ok.. it definitely wasn't the right place to post something like that.
