Thank you for your interest in my personal life. I'll pass on your offer to discuss it.Censoring Party wrote:ces, no offense but I seriously think you should rewind your life back to 1992, and pay more attention the second time through. Make that 1982 or even 1972 if you want to insist on making such self-important encyclopaedic posts. Honestly if you don't understand the basics and the history you've got no hope of understanding what Torvalds is saying, nor those who know more than Torvalds (of which there are many).
I learn by asking questions. I learned something in the instance you are referring to... by asking questions. It isn't always so easy when people throw cryptic jargon around without attempting to explain what it means to others who do not understand it. And I have to admit I was struggling.
Everyone has their own learning style. What is yours?
But here is the real question. What do you think evidences that a person believes the world revolves around them? I think there is often a correlation between that and censorship. Think about it. Go back all the way to 1072... or even 72.
In fact I would propose that most of the the suffering of the world, is caused by people who take themselves or their belief systems too seriously. This is applicable, in my opinion, through the whole gamut of people out there... not just famous genocidal despots with no tolerance toward others... but going on to academic bullying.... down to the local work place or school yard bully.
In my opinion, censorship and exaggerated self importance are seldom found other than in each other's company.
There is nothing on this forum that is really that important. It's just chatter. It's just a hobby. It isn't that important. But that is just my view.
So what is your view?
(I moved this here so we can discuss what you brought up without going off topic)
