Welcome to the Mint family forums.

Most problems already have a fix
search
read
ask
If you need to ask please copy and paste the result of terminal code inxi -Fnx with your question
And take your time to avoid disappointment.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

There was some discussion about this in the Moderators forum before that name was approved. I didn't follow it all, but it appears they decided it was not a big enough problem to worry about.

Something I didn't realize when I posted my remark is that cosmo ... erm .. the original Cosmo. ... no longer posts in this forum. I suspect he might take umbrage to this situation if he was still here.

Yes, Cosmo disappears without a word and one month to the day later cosmo appears. This was not lost on me.

I had to do a double-take too! Wonder if Cosmo. will be back? Anyone seen him on another forum?
