    Keep up with the accusations. If you want people who disagree with you to sit on the sidelines, you are committing censorship.


    Good job on not reading anything I wrote about the difference between disagreeing with somebody and disrupting a community. And since you speak of censorship, mind answering my other question by pointing out where people suggest that this place should be censored, as you suggested? Or are you going to choose to ignore this, as well?

    Well I am typing this on Vista. I use both Linux and Windows, but yes, I must say I prefer Linux (from a purely technological perspective).


    Oh, so by 'coming over to the "Linux side"' you meant that they use Linux? That's hardly a surprise, many people here have been using Linux for a long time now.

    So by that logic, your visiting here means you're coming over to the "Microsoft side"? Welcome! Smiley

    So it seems Channel 9 is going to go from one of the most open communities on the Internet to one who is going to take censorship to  whole new levels.


    Please point out where you see this 'censorship' being suggested?

    I sometimes wonder how such folks cope with the real politics in the workplace. Do they resign the second someone starts disagreeing with them?


    There is a huge difference between disagreeing with somebody, and trolling. The first is debating, the second is actively and intentively disrupting all debate.

    If, in the workplace, somebody is actively trying to disrupt the sense of community or starts sabotaging any conversations that goes on, or is basically being a moron by proclaiming that all his colleagues suck on a daily basis, then I'd either want that person removed from the workplace, or I'd want to be able to never see or hear that person again. In real life, that last option is impossible, but on the internet, that's absolutely an option.

    But resigning because someone in your workplace is being an annoying fool? That's a bit insane, yeah.

    As far as I know, the Bank of America is the world's richest company. But still, I'd rather they spent that money on, I don't know, better audio hardware, or development of the forum software, or whatever.

    Anyway, working out convenient SMS deals for every country in the world is undoable. I like the idea, but I think it's too impractical. It'd be very effective though.

    why don't you ask for cell phone numbers for identification (sending a code via SMS to the user that he inserts in a c9 page). I doubt that trolls could change cell phone numbers each day.


    Wouldn't SMSing internationally be expensive?

  • Want to guest host for Channel 9 at Mix?

    I for one would love to see sirhomer do an interview with some Microsoft devs.
