    Objection, your honor!
    You get a lot without having to pay for it, but without pay, you have no
    right to expect anything nor can you demand anything.

    "Pay" here could mean "offer help yourself", although "newbies" ,
    understandably, may have nothing they can pay with (no offense meant, we
    all started and stand on the shoulder of giants), so one thing you can
    pay with is good behavior, affability, friendliness, gentleness.
    There are a lot of people around who are willing to help (some to great
    depths) without getting any , but who get
    pretty pi**ed when the person they are trying to help ignores their
    advice or start calling people names when things don't go as expected.

    Isn't your time better spent updating your viruses, or reinstalling your
    "OS" because it's malware-riddled and unusable?

    Why are you here in a Linux newsgroup, Win-droid?

    I'm using Ubuntu. Are you? My windows machine has been up for over a year
    with no virus' or serious malware. Please don't take the fact that you
    can't get an os to operate out on me.

    Really?

    Doesn't look like it to me.

    No, I'm using Slackware, although I have toyed with several versions of
    Ubuntu. I found them less than desirable.

    Right. So you've just had the "not serious" malware, then?

    LOL! Har! Good one!

    Bugger off, Win-droid.

    Well, I would try 'mana', and if empty or male occupied I would
    simply continue. Else I would vacate. After all, the prime
    objective is to pea.

    Similar to "Blue Pill/Red Pill". It could make for an entertaining
    mistake.
