Filters work just fine and anything from this "Linda" person goes

It's just too bad that loonies like "Linda" and the threads that go on
and on further drifting away off-topic make for a rather bad S/N ratio.
Compare this list to for example the CentOS, Postfix, Dovecot, Asterisk
or FreeSWITCH mailing lists and you see a world of difference where
those lists are pretty strict in being on-topic, focused, professional
and provide quite a lot of good information. Would be nice if this list
got there too but I am not holding my breath. The same difference can be
seen comparing the Fedora irc channel to the irc channels of the other
lists I mentioned. I haven't figured out what is causing the vast
difference. Except that behavior from the likes of "Linda" and off-topic
stuff is generally not welcome on the other lists and irc channels and
dealt with appropriately.
On this list, we have a pretty wide variety of users including those
that are simply desktop only end users that simply want to use a
computer and aren't necessarily computer hobbyists nor system admins.
Thus the fedora-users list doesn't even slightly resemble the other
lists that you mentioned and it seems to be an unreasonable expectation
that you have.
I tend to have a high tolerance for eccentric people but a low tolerance
for those who treat the list like a resource for their school homework
rather than actually make an attempt to obtain the answers but I guess
everyone has their own flash points. Despite the obvious meanderings,
Linda does have a genuine interest in using Fedora, has repeatedly
demonstrated some in depth knowledge of Linux and Fedora and has done
research. I don't share your obvious contempt for her presence and think
you have been unnecessarily harsh but you don't have to please any of
