    Spam less, code more

    Some of us may see that as a feature...

    9:04 EDIT - yep, it works

    P.S. I was up north for the long weekend and just got back to my corner of civilization (running water and dial-up internet) now.

    For what it's worth... The Arch Linux forums don't have any edit time limit that I'm aware of, and their users are actively encouraged to use the edit feature instead of posting again, even if that's one day later. Different forums though, they are more about problem solving than chatting, and there are lots of posts every day.

    I also believe the admins "solved" the spam problem by using Linux-specific questions during the account creation...

    No reply from John Bridgman?

    Really thank you for all the work on open source drivers, although I don't yet use AMD cards, I sure will one day.

    I think the current situation is fine. Those who are bothered by the advertisements will block them, and those who are not, well they can watch them, click on them, whatever.
