Subject: RE: Prob with Archos fm
From: rinty (rinty_at_freeuk.com)

Blow me? a very very mild expletive often used by my grand mother, and
others of that generation, rather like "stone-a- crows".

--I guess you're right.
--It doesn't change the fact that he asked to be
--'blown'...whatever that may mean.

--14:33Subject: RE: Prob with Archos fmHi guys,
--
--
--I'd like to make a few points here if I could.
--
--
--1. Please believe that I'm not defending someone whose rood, or
--
--vulgar.  There's no need for it, though I've seen the F
--word in a post
--
--or 2 in the past, and wouldn't consider it beyond the realms of
--
--possibility that I might use it myself. I think that freedom of
--
--expression is more important than vulgarity. Some people's limited
--
--vocabulary means that they have limited ways of expressing
--themselves,
--
--and therefore normal rules don't necessarily appertain.
--
--
--2. I'd hate to think we were banning someone for the non-sin of not
--
--being particularly articulate, or for whom spelling and
--punctuation is
--
--a problem.  I'm not the world's greatest speller myself,
--and I'd hate
--
--to have my punctuation put under the microscope: I also
--have very mild
--
--dyslexia.
--
--
--3.  Some people don't find it easy to follow instructions,
--had it not
--
--been for Aman's amazingly good instructions for installing rb and
--
--getting it talking, I doubt my own ability to have got it working.
--
--
--4.  I submitted a request a couple of days ago for help
--with flashing
--
--my players, and explained that I couldn't understand the
--instructions
--
--in the manual. There was no implied criticism of the manual there,
--
--merely my lack of ability.
--
--
--5. I'm not a developer either, I'm an inexperienced and incompetent
--
--user.  I need help, and although I don't dispute for a
--moment that the
--
--list may be primarily for developers, I hope it's OK for users to be
--
--here and ask questions too.  I wonder if it was a developer who came
--
--up with the idea of having rockbox speak, or whether it was as a
--
--result of a suggestion from another user, whether visually
--impaired or
--
--not. I understood that this was the general discussion list for all
--
--things pertaining to rockbox, hence why I joined.
--
--
--6.  Again I'd say that there's no excuse for insulting
--other members,
--
--for being rude to each other, and for any vulgarity that doesn't
--
--clearly arise from a lack of communication ability.  I just want to
--
--sound a note of caution to the calls for a ban.
--
