The first #ubuntuphone
, like any press event, will draw a lot of fanboys and trolls.
- Do not engage trolls. Call them out politely, and then ignore them. "You are trolling. That kind of behavior is not welcome in this community. Stop it." and nothing else. Move on. Do not rise to their bait. Flag it for moderation. Move on. Ignore their childish responses. Do not try to correct their facts, nor dispute their interpretations.
- Do not bash other Operating Systems, distros, or projects. Be mature. Ubuntu's success does not come at the expense of anyone else. Other projects have great ideas, fantastic people, and are pursuing worthy goals...just like we are. Plenty of room on the planet for everyone. Bashing others merely makes us look smaller.
- When you see a review or blog post you disagree with ("meh, the phone's not that great"), don't become a troll. Don't start a fight. Do restrain or repudiate pro-Ubuntu trolls. Time will prove the doubters wrong.
