[Linux-aus] Some questions

I haven't been following the elections, mainly because I am a lurking 

I lurk on purpose because I prefer to watch for the gems of info that 
comes through the list.

But one thing I do abhor is the viciousness and vitriol that seems to 
permeate things like elections and comities.

This is an organisation that is driven by a love for the community and 
the ideals that surround Linux and FOSS. End of story.

Anyone who actively seeks power over members of a group like this:  a. 
does not deserve it and b. does not truly believe in the goals of the 
group - Community.

So please lets not see agenda hijacking, politicising of every little 
word or opinion and please keep conversations on the list civil and upbeat.

Janet's questions, while they could be seen by those with an agenda as 
"loaded", are fairly straight forward and completely valid for this list.

If you don't want to answer them, then don't. But there is no need to 
turn the post into some sort of arguing point.

Sorry, just gets on my nerve.

My 2 cents worth.
