I'm somewhat shocked that the actions of members and forum mod today appears at odds with the Foundation's constitution.https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/raspberry_pi_foundation_constitu wrote: Section 3: Objects
The object of the Charity is to further the advancement of education of adults and children, particularly in the field of Computers, Computer Science and related subjects.
As was said in the deleted thread about the Asus board, stopping people from helping a drowning person simply because he didn't sail with your company isn't right.
While I quite understand that it's most easy to help people trying to learn to use a Raspberry pi computer, the Foundation's stated aim is to help people learn stuff about computers. Not Raspberry pi computers only.
I'd expect a corporation like Apple to squash any mention of another product on their forums, but where people politely come here looking for help with a computer related issue where they could learn from polite answers people may be willing to give...only for them to receive aggressive responses from forum members and moderator alike this doesn't seem right...
Then deleting the thread/moving to another place removing all trace from public view...
From what I saw today I don't expect a polite answer to this thread, but I can hope.
