If no one is interested the thread dies out on its own. However, let if someone has something to say let them. The people who reply/comment *want* to talk about it. No one forces anyone to *read* the thread. Just ignore it. It's that simple. Going as far as threatening to ban a user for commenting negatively or positively or. even "off-topic" (this is relative, e.g., I found the discussion on the strengths&  weaknesses of ubuntu/centos/redhat el interesting&  in some cases informative as the various issues were debated). I would think that there's nothing wrong with allowing people the freedom to discuss centos-related stuff on the centos list. As I mentioned earlier it's as simple as ignoring a thread if don't like it. There's no need to flame, ban or go on a rant just because someone says s
omething you don't like about your favourite OS has been attacked.

Hi Errol.

It is not about freedom of speech. We passed that threshold months ago. 
Note that complaining and warning have only started after 10 days of 
non-stop discussion and almost *90* messages! I found discussion 
interesting, but *up to a point*.

It stopped being interesting only after *repeated* statements. And this 
argument goes back several months back in various threads. Also, those 
"Ubuntu is better" statements are mostly written by same 5-8 people, 
over and over again, always saying the same thing. *That* is what is 

There are countless mailing list and forums available and open for "beat 
a dead horse" games. All some of us asked is that they do not play those 
loud games in front of *our* bedroom windows.

I hope this clears it up a little.
