I'm with Jason here.

I use Qt for mobile development as well, and I don't think a ban is the
right course of action. Choice of words is a pre-eminent selector in
deciding which posts to take seriously. Using terms in the the manner
Roland does about phone development, in all likelihood, self-disqualifies
any serious consideration his posts might have received otherwise. Although
a shame, that is repercussion enough in my opinion.
