I told people that, I told them about linux's sheer advantages, and people blow at me, I hate it.

would you want to pay all those windows costs, I mean, server 2003 is very expensive!
LOL
maybe people could vote for the member that gave them the most useful information, rather than the person who posted the most, that might also stop any spamming or flaming

i think the staff should decide who* should be member of the month

and base are opinions on who has helped the most answering questions who has calmed everyon down, who has reported spm, etc

i think it could work if users for once respected a staff decision

thats a great idea, see thats just what im talking about, to try and motivate people not to spam and give useful answers to peoples questions rather than just repeating what the person above has said

I think it will also create too much bias, I just got here, and I'm gonna try my best not to get mean and rowdy, I'm just here to help people with linux, and whatever else comes to play.

I hope that this forum Isn't a biased place. the last forum I was at was hevily biased and certian members got treated better and got off easier than others. Just becuse some mods talked alot with certain members on msn alot. I hated it.

All I am sking for is people to respect me, I know people Don't like linux, its ok, Im cool with it. I know some people in my IT department disagreed with me using linux, but I know that they just want waht they want. I respect alot of peoples decisions.

But I will not respect a decsion to favor one member over the other, I think everyone should be treated equal.

Haha; I'm sure it is flattered but Windows doesn't bend that way Scott. Now Linux... most of their Distributions would probably be more than happy.
