So you're mad because the moderators moved your thread to the correct sub-forum? I've been on those forums over 5 years (you for less than a month) and your topic was 100% absolutely "recurring"---I've read discussion on that topic at least 100 times (you even linked to some of them); the mods made the right call. And it's childish to come here to complain about it, instead of here: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=123 Cowboy up and fight your own fights, don't come whining to us.
Kudos to #! mods for not overreacting and immediately /closing this thread; it is nice to have a safe haven where we can rag on other distro's communities.

No, you're right, snowpine. I could highlight the humorous and/or self-deprecating elements e.g. about sulking etc. or the fact that it was written on a Friday evening and that the intent was playful. However, when you break it down, the fact is that my nose was put out joint by moderators of another forum carrying out their duties according to the rules governing posting on that forum. That's a "whine" in anyone's book.
The owl and the pussycat programmed in C
With integers, strings and floats
For their skills and their beards they were admired and revered
By young men in long overcoats
No worries, the internet would be a boring place if we didn't whine and complain.
You guys are class acts, a great lesson of Internet etiquette for all.

No, that wasn't a whine, it was a complaint; I might go so far as to call it a gripe, but it wasn't a whine. If you want to hear whining, look up "Rarity whining" on Youtube. (You'll want to turn down your treble. )
As far as I can tell, we're all cool here.
Yes; as a matter of fact, I am a cop. Why do you ask?
I'm a moderator here. How are we doing? Feedback is encouraged.
@BigBenAugust - there is GhostBSD openbox, which as close as you'll get to Crunch on FreeBSD, without a DIY approach. Actually that's not such a daft idea. Very shaky in parts but then that makes it truer to the CrunchBang mission-statement-cumethos.-
Yeah, I have run it in a VM before.
I decided to throw FreeBSD on my home desktop for something different. I ran it on a laptop many years ago back when wireless ethernet was a gleam in it's daddy's eye. I have forgotten how long it takes to build everything from ports.
Sometimes I use Debian, sometimes I use openSUSE.
FreeBSD 9.0 installer actually sets up your wifi as part of the install process nowadays.
(Apart from Broadcom, of course. )
