I don't think you understand the meaning of the word "mantras".

Really, I must have missed the funeral.

That statement goes beyond stupid. At some point, everyone is a
"newbie". If your statement is to be taken at face value, then the
majority of new users would, according to you, never bother to learn
anything. You might want to try and back that up with some verifiable
facts. Furthermore, in regards to your "click-click interface"
statement, the Ubuntu operating system is gaining traction everyday.
Everyone is not locked into the c.1990's.

I have witnessed your posts on Dovecot being ridiculed as nothing more
than TROLLing.

"procmail" -- really? While everyone is free to use what ever solution
they find advantageous, I would certainly not recommend "procmail".
Procmail is widely used on Unix-based systems and stable, but no longer
maintained. Many users have switched to maildrop. Personally, I prefer
"sieve" with Dovecot. Just a personal preference and yet far more

> Doesn't look like serious people's behavior.

Your actions mimic that of a TROLL. You make blanket statements sans any
verifiable proof or documentation; i.e. "dd" being the ultimate disk
recovery utility or its ability to absolutely, positively erase any HD
without any possibility of it being recovered.

I can understand why informed users might block you. I think I will be
following their lead. It seems that you have managed to annoy,
infuriate and offend users on at least two lists, this one and Dovecot,
and I am sure several others as well. At least you have a perfect
batting average.
