prayer <reply> Dear $DEITY, Give me strength to understand and work with users who question my logic, the rules, netiquette, and common sense. Give me resilience to teach them the basics of Linux, Ubuntu, Community Guidelines, and IRC. Allow me not to stray to nitpicking, argument, foul language, or leisurely op abuse. Deliver me my daily xkcd, User Friendly, LWN, /. and Planet Ubuntu, and guard over my encrypted drives. Let it be so. Myrtti

psychology-#ubuntu-offtopic <reply> #ubuntu-offtopic is not a counseling/psychological advice channel. If you need to talk to someone about a problem that is affecting you, you would be better served by talking to a qualified person offline. While this is a social chat channel, there are serious limits to our ability and willingness to give social and psychological advice. dax
