I down loaded CentOS last Monday and joined the mailing list at the same time. 
If this is typical behaviour of the list I don't think I will bother 
installing it this weekend.
I have been a Linux user for about three years now. I still consider myself a 
newbie but jump in and give what answers I can when I can. I was under the 
impression Linux was a free operating system. Free to use and free to change 
to the way I want. It seems that in Franks case its not free for him to 
choose how he distributes a how to that he has invested his time and effort 
in producing.
In his posting he stated that he had had problems with wiki's in the past 
though he had not used the CentOS wiki. So lets cut the chap some slack.
I for one would like to say thanks Frank for giving some time and effort back 
to the community.
