Hello

Several members have asked me to ban/remove muesli posts for trolling/not respecting the topic. Is everyone here ok with that?

If you are, I'll post a final reply then remove them.

Thanks,
Guylhem

I'm not really comfortable with it either. Trolling is bad; trolls should be admonished, and either: their trolling should cease, or their ability to harm people with their trolls curtailed, but there are a few pragmatic problems.

Trolling is a natural human behaviour; for some it's compulsive and unhealthy, for the rest of us trolls it's a needed opportunity to release steam. The line between the two is not always clear- hence even good little trolls like me, tongue.gif should be served the same sanction when appropriate.

More significantly, this remains an open forum where dissemination of accurate and useful information is a great premium. Data on the function of Zauruses is rare and difficult to come by, so *any* source of input is held more valuable than might otherwise be. The museli posts seem to be total bunk, but it was not obvious until delving deeper. I'm grateful for the existence of a forum where GPL violations can be reported, as much as I am grateful that this was a false alarm, and guylhem entirely innocent.

I'm glad that ORG sees value in preserving these posts, even as they are moved to a more appropriate thread. The admin/owners are entitled to enforce any policies they find suitable, but it's heartening to see them in concordance with (what this troll feebly regards as) Freedom.

guylhem: I don't use your roms, but thanks for making them!
