I do not know if I could of been as calm as the webmaser at CENT OS when dealing with this situation.

After making a total fool of himself, why does he still have a job?
xstatic said:Is there a reason why Cent OS and not a different Linux distribution? Anything make Cent OS a more powerful choice for running a website then the other possible choices?

The trick is to use their stupidity to your advantage. By letting them rage on and then using it to make a profit. I'm sure the cent os webmaster had that in mind when he acted as he did, and tryed to get the most benefit out of it. No coincidence that he responded calmly, then posted the whole incident to his web site. He was smart and took advantage of the guys stupidity.
