...er, you mean flaming others is a necessary part of community
building or is that a LUG related activity ??

Sarcasm, Mr. Dinesh Joshi ??  I would credit you with a lot more
intelligence than that. So i'll just step over your current
self-indulgence in asking leading questions[0] via presuppositions[1],
petitio principii[2] and syllogisms[3] and invite you to help LCIN
(see below...:))

> hehe...just kidding ;-)

...but I'm not (kidding) when I invite you (and other members who
derive joy in flaming others) to volunteer for conducting LC-Labs[4]
sessions in Mumbai, in addition to Mehul Ved's Linux session** at
VJTI.  Linuxchix-India has been trying to sync with the local LUG
groups and it would be fantastic if you could volunteer to help us
with the same.  Bigadda (Mumbai), had agreed to provide space/machines
for the purpose of workshops and seminars in their office premises on
Saturdays, which has not been utilised to its potential.

CC'ing the Indichix list as I'm not aware if Warren and Jayashree, who
take care of the Mumbai activity, are subscribed to ILUG-BOM list.  If
anyone wants to contribute in Mumbai, feel free to exponentiate this
thread[4] into something which may be practically useful, never mind
which list you discuss it on.

**  Mehul's thread requesting for volunteers for local meets evoked a
mere 2 responses from ILUG-BOM list which has 1000+ members, as
opposed to the flaming threads which encompass insults, sarcasm and/or
diss on (perceived) lesser mortals. Probably he will find many
volunteers but this sure makes for an interesting observation besides
being an example of why _some_ local LUG's miss out on various
aspects, especially active participation of women[5] and I've said
that earlier in a different context[6].
