And for the M$ crap: I agree entirely... I can understand one is excited about Linux (as I am ), but that doesn't mean you should pick on MS. I still use Windows for some things (gaming), and I think MS makes good software (although ethically not as correct as the OSS is). Picking on MS doesn't make you a better Linux user. Tolerancy is a must.Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.

I will certainly be sure to spell Microsoft correctly.
I sure don't want Bill Gates after me!

I am also in favour of the changes - Can I make a point?
Should there also be rules about posting threads which are obviously sexist? Sometimes 'jokes' appear as threads which are negative towards women. As a slightly older man, I find this both offensive and pointless.
Some of the men on here are married. Do they want to read threads which portray women as stereotypes: '*****y', 'nags' ... etc. etc? I know what you're thinking, 'Why not...?'
I want to see more women posting to this forum, simply because I dislike 'single gender' clubs or cliques. Sexism is also negative.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
Seriosly? Do I have to change my signature?
I've always used this signature... Latin is international so everybody should with no problem understand it, right?
The quote of Louis XI isn't as good if you change the language it's written in...

since im still a newbie and ive read the rules i fully understand and accepet these new rules.
Again, with the engish signature one, if you make an exception for one language then your going to have make an exception to more of them, which in this case that the moderators and admins dont want to do. Obviously they were carefully to consider this rule, but the decision is to be made and it cant be changed at all.
Also I never have really bad mouthed microsoft anyway, as i still use Microsoft applications on windows to do my studies on, i use linux for general purpose, for command line tools and experimentation, so i usually tend to stay away from topics such as which is better microsoft or linux? As i can argue the good and the bad and the cursed in just about both the operating system...if given the chance. lol

I´m a newcomer and I read the rules so back off ... ... bully ...
Anyway, I agree with the rules, except maybe the ¨all signatures in English¨ thing. I wouldn´t really mind a signature with a readable encoding and a translation in English. I have been using Microsoft stuff since 1990 and I have found it is not really that bad, if you learn to deal with it but can I use ¨MS¨ instead of the whole name. I hope it is not considered misspelled but just shortened. And I couldn´t agree more with the ¨no leetspeak". It has always annoyed me ...
