I think you're right. Assholes like Queeg and Splat make it
miserable for the real users here.
I'm in favour. Let's do this. :-)
We could have as the charter,
1.4 The Charter of comp.os.linux.advocacy.moderated
The charter of comp.os.linux.advocacy.moderated is:
For discussion of the benefits of Linux compared to other
That single sentence is the one and only charter of the
newsgroup comp.os.linux.advocacy.moderated. The newsgroup's
charter is for the newsgroup as a place for supporters of Linux
to gather to discuss Linux, for the betterment of the Linux
community and the promotion and development of Linux. It supports
this as a place for those who would like to learn more about
Linux to come to learn from those who know Linux.
No longer would have have to have statements such as (continued
from COLA FAQ):
"It does not call for it to be a place where the anti-Linux
propagandists to gather in order to discredit Linux."
Because the trolls would be moderated out.
In the new COLA FAQ, we could eliminate the troll tactics section
in its entirety. Complete "2.3 Conduct Acceptable in COLA
(moderated)" section. Expand the Linux help and benefits section.
