No, Jonathan, I’m  not dead. If I sometimes don’t post anything is because I don’t have anything relevant to highlight (and it’s not like I want to follow Michael Meeks’ approach for blogging). You’re implying that the Ubuntu community is not “caring” and that Kubuntu is the “refugee” for us, or what is your point? Because honestly, adding a “k” to my community doesn’t change anything. I find it wrong to take advantage of your dissatisfaction with Canonical so you can advertise your “pet community”. 
You’re obviously discontent of the Mir announcement, but why are you mixing that with an unfounded accusation that the Ubuntu community  are suddenly disregarding all others?
You flopped it when you chose the title for your post.
