Ubuntu Has No Open Respect, Needs Introspection

"Summary: Suggestions for Canonical regarding eradication of Internet trolls in Ubuntu Forums and discouragement of trolling by Mono boosters who masquerade as Ubuntu members (or use such a duality)

"I DON'T know exactly what's going on inside Canonical, but after almost 7 years with Ubuntu (my first one was 4.10) I sense that the company got rotten from the inside. I was defending it when it came under scrutiny or dangers from all sorts of directions and spent many days of my life advocating its use. But I am almost done carrying water for Ubuntu, especially because its parent company is harbouring Mono boosters as members who troll this site in IRC and other means of communication. It's understandable when this is done by former Microsoft employees who now promote Mono (they pulled the same tricks in our IRC channels before), but when people associated with Ubuntu engage in trolling, that's too far and it shows what Canonical must cope with."
