Brian wasn't commenting about the posts suitability for this mailing list but that the poster had hijacked an existing, unrelated thread, and requested that he start a new thread with his question. Some benefits of starting a new thread are that it will not get buried in the existing thread and it will not pollute the existing thread. Potential respondents to the cinnamon question may have seen the original thread, not been interested in it, killed the thread and so would not see the question that they would be able to help with.
