I am new to this forum and read the nvidia threads cause I'm curious about the general development of the binary blob (open-source or not). I just get frustrated that everytime I want to hear peoples comments about the features. I get asdx going "Nvidia is crap, blah, blah" and then thread gets derailed and the topic at hand never gets discussed.
Don't ban him. He hates, like me, companies who are against open source and you are getting some of the heat since you defend them. I really don't understand why do you defend these companies and what are you doing here. For example, I know that Nvidia, does a good job supporting Linux with their binary blob, but they have no excuse not releasing the documentation and not making their driver open source.
So stop complaining about asdx when he tells you to fuck off when you are defending a shitty company, he is right.
Ok sorry for my insults, I only insulted when others have insulted me for expressing my views on proprietary blobs, but I guess I went too far a few times with the "I hope you die" comments, I never really meant those things.
I only get angry when someone insults me for expressing my views on FOSS and blobs, and they insult me for supporting FOSS, then I insult them back for supporting blobs.
But it's pointless because those people seems to have forgotten what made Linux so great, the idea of working together and FOSS, etc.
So I won't bother trying to explain anymore, I hope they realize they are hurting Linux with blobs before it's too late.
Its about being respectful asdx, i get that not everyone on these forums is respectful to everyone else all the time. Hell, me and you have gotten into it once or twice ourselves. We all snap and say shit we don't mean but over all we all need to be respectful and courtesy if for -no better reason- than to constantly trying to be the bigger man / woman.
But its really hard to take you seriously and any apology you say for disrespect when I've got something like "Location: with your sister" staring me in the face every time you post. I use that as an example because I just noticed it and that's just blatant flame-bait.
Oh come on now people, asking for people to be banned merely because they just hurl insults when the person posting such "ban xxx please" threads is merely no better than the person that they ask to ban.
As every forum has its trolls and this one is no exception. The best thing you all can do is put the person in question on ignore. Lets all act like adults who share a common love, operating systems and computer stuff
To asdx, maybe you can just calm down and not flame people like that. If you disagree with a post just politely say why you disagree rather than hurling a childish insult....better results that way
Person who starts a ban is usually in no matter different to the one he is trying to ban. Unless its about a spambot.
That's not true. I petitioned for Qaridarium to be banned years before he eventually was because it was so obvious. The effect was that Qaridarium came back, but as a better poster.
Sometimes, people are so consistently obnoxious that they need to be banned. Ignore list doesn't defeat trolls, because you still have to scroll through the forum posts of the people who took the bait.
