This may be true for hardcore f-word, a-word and m-word expressions ... but come on: The expressions "saltyp" used up there were rather harmless.

Spare me your condescending compassion, yes?pappfer wrote: I think it's sad..
And how about you stop offending people who don't believe? Telling someone "... it's sad ... " is exactly that: An offense. You demand "please don't offend us" and yet you yourself display no respect.pappfer wrote: but even if you do, please don't offend people who believe.
Oh now you speak for the entire community too? Here is news for you: You don't. Not even Linus Torvalds would claim such a thing. We're a diverse bunch and some may believe something or others may not believe it. The point is that the comment that "saltyp" posted up there is all in all rather harmless and the puritan comments here about "using God's name in vain ... " are totally exaggerated. All he did is praise Linux Mint. You people might want to take off your puritan glasses for a second and just try and see other people's postings in that light. Instead of turning everything into a Jihad against your oh so offended invisible God that you people so feverishly believe in.pappfer wrote: I really think that these kind of posts what you wrote guys just don't fit here at all and reflects negatively on Linux community.

I don't care about other people's beliefs for as long as they don't tell others what they should believe or not. Live and let live. It's always your camp that starts those discussions and then resorts to ad hominem attacks. What's next? Threats about your invisible God shooting arrows of lightning at me?BubbaBlues wrote:scorp123 why don't you just shut the hell up and take your ignorant ass outa here if you're so damned offended and frightened over people's beliefs.

Others are trying to read and post to this topic about things that are on topic and this back and forth over a simple word that could have been reported to the moderators and edited out in 30 seconds is interfering with their right to post on topic.
