7 Sorry, I meant to address this as well:
8 Don't get caught in the approval/disapproval trap.
9 My preferences and opinions have nothing to do with personal stuff.
10 I read everyone's posts, regardless of whether or not I agree with
11 them on anything, and have no enemies, because I'm not interested
12 in that sort of thing.
14 There are occasionally people who dislike me, and that's fine.
15 I don't like everybody either.
16 But generally speaking, what others think is none of my business
17 until they try to convince me I should also think that way.
18 Then it seems appropriate to address it.
20 You know, Linus uses gnome last I heard.
21 So I'm well aware that my personal preferences have nothing to do
22 with whether or not I am proficient or knowledgeable.
23 Maybe I'm pushing peoples' buttons by sounding like some inflexible,
24 judgemental old fart you met before. If so, sorry! I'm more of a
25 "live and let live", yet strongly opinionated old fart. :)
