Cgonzal2. Settle down or post elsewhere. I have deleted offending posts and maybe this thread will get back on track.. But if you cant be civil to the members your stay here will be extremely short.

Yeah and I would also like to make it clear that my previous post was only in jest. I just thought it was kinda funny how this was posted in the Linux section when the user has seemingly little to no knowledge of what Linux is. Unless of course I am mistaken but then again I don't think someone would of posted it like this if they did:
