Hey All,

MW has some valid points, also Miles is pretty right here too, but  
it's hard to see the points through the tone of the messages!

So it seems this thread has simply gotten a bit out of hand with tone?

But in the meantime I think all the points raised are really  
interesting, (because I know yall' off-list and know what perspective  
yall' are coming from).

On Dogmatism:
Wow we all gotta seriously relax, ME INCLUDED.  This list is supposed  
to be a place were we can learn, and focus on tech we all love, in  
order to help each other learn- not to keep each other from doing  

On Use:
Is it fair to say(?):
It's nobody's business what packets I run across the internet  
connection I pay for, except me.
It's nobody's business what I do with my computer, unless it damages  
you in some direct way.

Others should be respected.

Depending on who I am, and what I have acce$s to, I may have a very  
different idea of what I'm doing with UNIX, computing, networks,  
etc...  from business to home, from the production stresses to an  
experimental spirit!

I think people on this list are generally extremely gracious about  
these issues, but what happened this week?  Are we all really grumpy  
about something?


NYCBUG`s theme is "A forum for discussion and a bridge for learning".  
This means we operate under different guidelines than other *BSD  
mailing lists. Please be understanding to newbie questions and do not  
slam less informed users or accuse them of trolling. Remember:  
Discussion is encouraged, BASHING is not. Bridging is encouraged,  
RTFM is not.

And back to our regular scheduled programming...
