  • Please Turn Off The Honton

    I'm far from the only one realizing how disruptive this individual has been lately, and the SNR ratio in the forums is low enough already. Please look through the post history if you don't know what I'm talking about. (And no, I'm not referring to the thread Honton created, which has a specific title and can be skipped by someone who's not interested in desktop environment holy wars). Going into a news thread about KDE and making antagonistic statements about how much KDE and kwin suck is trolling at its purest. Any topic vaguely related to Gnome/KDE is derailed. "Gstreamer 1.2 released? Let's talk about how much KDE sucks in the first post!" http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...238#post359238

    Note: I don't use KDE, so don't please mistake me for an upset KDE fan/user/dev.
    Note2: No, I'm not using the ignore list, because it doesn't work well for a case like this.

    Thanks

    I support this. His posts don't get people anywhere. Probably he wants to clash GNOME versus KDE just to make flamewars for own pleasure, or like BOSS, is windows agend who is here only for trolling.

        I already asked for him to be warned/banned once, and he was, but then came back as sort of a caricature of himself that few people respond to. The ignore list would work well in such a case.
        Also, I try to avoid news threads about Ubuntu/Mir/Wayland, so I'm probably seeing a lot less of him.

            Bump.

            Why is BO$$ banned, but Honton isn't? Honton is just as bad a troll as BO$$ was.

                He might be a bit obsessive but censorship is not a way. If you don't like his opinions, just don't read his posts - it's simple.

                  Censorship? This is a privately owned forum. There is no right to free speech on private forums, and therefore, the term is "enforcing the rules", not 'censorship'.

                    I don't agree that he should just be banned. He's not being abusive or resulted to personal attacks. It's just a little bit of ignorance.
                    I would suggest a mod to send him a PM and then close this thread.
