I am mostly silent and I am not pleased about many things that were
said, but this is too much. I have to raise my voice.

If I understand correctly the things some people say is annoying you, so
you think about ways to censoring them. Quite a low level of tolerance
and thats baddest karma.

Maybe some of you feel assaulted, maybe some of you feel annoyed.
I think pretty much everyone get peeved by threads like this but likely
for different reasons. So many notions, so many slanting views, and also
so many self conceptions. And this is a good thing in my opinion. Do not
kill the C(ommunity) in CentOS, please.

Yes the traffic to noise ratio has been quite low lately, some things
are repeated over and over and this is annoying me too, but the Noise
ratio is quite high with purely technical things too, IMO. People could
read manuals, people could search archives, etc. But I am drifting, back
on topic: Please stop thinking about moderating == censoring.

Kind Regards, Markus Falb
