This is to be expected and will only get "worse" as Ubuntu gains
popularity. It happens on all lists from time to time and creating an
easy to use Linux distro lowers the barrier even more. When running

not argue even a tiny, insignificant detail?

One of the issues with open lists in general is they attract trolls and
people out to prove something, as long as the Code of Conduct is not
actually enforced on here there will continue to be abuses. I'm not
really for censorship though, learning to sift through the junk is an
important online skill.
