Hi all

Hope all is well with all of you guys.

I don't mean to disrespect anyone but I thought this is a Linux 
discussion group. I am kind of new to this group but all I have received 
so far is this b.shit-non-relevant-sarcastic-filthy-language discussions.
I have already grown allergic to some names, they talk a bout anything 
but Linux

I thought I will add to Linux knowledge by joining this group and learn 
form the  experienced members of this group. I am sure there is whole 
lot of potential in this group but its all scam from top to bottom

Sorry If I am too direct.
