First of all I'm sick of this attitude Warren.  I wasn't asking YOU to
remove IPv6 from the kernel.  My question was if I remove it, am I going
to face problems...

Yeah again you miss the point.

Yeah I get how opensource works.  That wasn't my question.

Maybe it is because when they ask a legitimate question you send them

All I asked was if it was safe for me to remove IPv6 from latest test
kernel, I don't see how asking a question about development kernel is
suited for the fedora-list...

You just told me in your previous e-mail to use the fedora-list when I
clearly stated I was talking about a development kernel.  I can see why
people don't post questions to these lists when all they get is attitude
and a never-ending run around.  You don't seem to know where I should
post this question, how am I suppost to?

All I was looking for was a Yes or No not your opinion on everything
except what I actually ask.  This could have a been a *2* message
thread...instead you turned into a crapfest by not reading my e-mails
carefully and being rude for me asking a VERY SIMPLE question.

Good Day,
