Why you should not be afraid to mingle with the openSUSE Project

I see many people coming to the openSUSE project but only a few of them (the new people) actually participate in the mailing list talks and on IRC channels talks.
I kept asking myself why? Why is this happening? Is there something wrong or what?
Recently I spotted a new openSUSE ambassador that was too 'tight' when we were talking about community matters and I took the opportunity to open a conversation with him about all of the above and what I got from that is that people are often don't say their opinion because they fear of saying something wrong, also they fear on saying their different opinion when they disagree with an older community member and other similar situations.
come play with us

If you are one of those guys and you have similar fears FORGET THEM.
Community needs you to have a different opinion.
Community needs you to speak up.
Don't be afraid to expose yourself, you are among friends here.
This is free software baby, you cannot actually be wrong. Thinking differently is what started Free Software after all.
Saying out  what you think is what makes openSUSE Project and community great.
Disagree with ANYONE if you think you have a point.
Do not leave other people guide you to places you don't want to go.
There are no Rockstars in our community.
Together we are stronger

If I haven't convinced you yet, I failed.

Καλησπέρα.λοιπόν το πρωί ξεστραβώθηκα να γράψω ένα σχόλιο που πήγε άπατο. έλεγε κάτι για τους βασιλικούς πιγκουίνους που τους λένε έτσι επειδή τρώνε πολύ βασιλικό νπου είναι και φυτό αντι μαγείας και καλό είναι να χουμε πέντ έξι γενικώς. τώρα για το open suse η απορία είναι υπάρχει και άλλη Σουζυ κιου έναντι βαλάντιου; τώρα εγώ έχω ubuntu και θέλω να βρω ένα πρόγραμμα τύπου dvd shrink? κάτι γαργάλησα αλλά τα αποτέλεσμα σκέτη απογοήτευση. αν ξέρει κανείς κάτι ας με διαφωτίσει διότι καλό το φρη λειτουργικό αλλά να ναι και λειτουργικό! Φοίβη
