Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu As the Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10) development gets going, many people will probably be wondering what new end-user features they can expect. This article lists the top 5 new features. My Take: Nothing really exciting. I still shiver over the inability of the default Totem installation not de-interlacing my camcomder-derived home videos and DVDs because GStreamer doesn't support it, or no full A/V support on Pidgin yet, or something as simple as this which I've been asking for years now and it would probably take 5 minutes to implement.

Your account was never deleted, it was temporarily suspended because you started writing your crap everywhere.


When you say "writing your crap everywhere," I assume you're referring to something besides than the grand total of 3 recent posts shown in his comment history?

BTW, thank for proving my earlier post: that OSNews admins completely neglect comment moderation, until someone posts a comment that you personally take exception to.

But you got your wish. I leave the osnews posting to David until Thom gets well. I really don't need that osnews shit again. I left osnews in 2005 for a reason: because it had started to piss me off.


In other words: you made a post that was 30% relevant content, 70% self-indulgent whining. And now that people have risen to your (blatant) flamebait, you're going to affect victimhood. See that red spot on my shirt? That's my heart bleeding for you.

Almost as amusing as your "I'm taking my ball and going home" blog post (with comments disabled, naturally). I'm frankly amazed that you don't have a writeup on Encyclopedia Dramatica yet - maybe I should remedy that...

My thoughts precisely. I'm pretty sure that most of the frequent users of this site would be happy with a "Sorry, my bad" but the arrogance on display here is breathtaking. "What? All I did was say fsck this and fsck that and fsck you! I'm right because look at this bug report which is merely a feature request from ages back that obviously is such a high priority in the minds of all! My logic is undeniable!"

Surprised this whole posting and thread hasn't been nuked yet, but at least she's not trying to cover up stirring the hornets nest and getting what she asked for. Yet.

well, I think it boils down to Eugenia simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time. she has stated several times, that she no longer has any interest whatsoever (to put it mildly) in os'es. I don't know exactly why, but she sure seem very bitter about it. now bitter people on OSNews is not exactly a new occurence, sure. but having a moderator show not only a total disinterest, but also what comes across as resentment towards the actual subject matter on which OSNews bases it's existance is simply a bad recipe.

I can't help but think that for both OSNews sake and the sake of Eugenia herself, she should stick to her gadgets and videography from here on.

Excuse me, sir, but please don't generalize your comments to apply to all OSNews editors. You don't know what really goes on in the database and with your fellow users, but I do. Since implementing peer moderation, we've only done about .3% of ALL moderation on the site. That's POINT three percent.

It's hardly fair for you to take your frustrations with one person out on everyone.
