So I have noticed

That poor people are pretty much hated here. If they weren't, my recent post to forum feedback would have not been deleted.

Before your post yesterday evening no one knew your personal circumstances, and thus previous to that no discrimination could have occurred as a result of personal bias regarding those circumstances here in the forums. Now, it is my belief that your post was a result of recent comments referring to you as "the goose," a play on your current username. While I agree it has been used in a disrespectful way, I don't see that bigotry was involved. Rather, I strongly believe it was in response to the content of your previous posts, which has often fallen into the categories of being off-topic, unhelpful, argumentative, disrespectful/condescending, and even a bit threatening. (That last one dates back to 2006.) It is therefore your words, not your ethnicity or current financial/social standing, that has caught the ire of some members and moderators. However, the past had nothing to do with the post's deletion. As Mark said, that one was deleted on the sole basis of being off-topic. How you wish to proceed is up to you, but personally I'd try to put the past behind by submitting beneficial contributions, contributing to a positive memory of your time in these forums.

2006. The user was extremely nasty to me. You know this. He beat the wrong dog. I listened to your suggetions and refrained from asuch a policy again.
Lee koo asked me in an email to make the subject more in relation to the problem. I complied with his request.
I proved my point recently about Open Source and Apple. No need to recount here.
A person asks for help, I give them the best help I know.
On the Linuc boards or referring to Linux. I'm not misleading anyone. Notice that I give information to people on the Linux board. There is no moderator or editor on here who is willing to help people get started in Linux or freeBSD. I have yet to see one of you provide help without making it secretive.I don't break any software or patent laws. My tutorials are simple and straightforward.

You can research my opinions. They are pretty much on track.

Once again: people ask for help, I offer. An alternative method is much better than ignoring the post or giving the round robin. Some answers may be hard to comprehend but try them.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
