→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: POSTING ETIQUETTES
vertical line Posted on Jun.24.2008 @ 12:23PM EDT by the alan

I am honestly tired of explaining myself regarding simple etiquettes on forum posting. It's really simple:

1. Answer the questions asked by the original poster. If you feel the compelling need to inject side comments and hold side discussions, START A NEW THREAD!

2. Be coherent. If someone haven't a clue what you are saying, you are NOT coherent. Some people are here to get answers to fundamental questions, not looking for a zen master wannabe.

Save the sarcasms, insinuations, and whines about getting your posts getting deleted and stop asking me questions because you know damn well why they are deleted.

Alan

vertical line Some posts are good and some are bad.
Sounds like a duality to me.

Just kidding, sounds good.

"Save the sarcasms, insinuations, and whines about getting your posts getting deleted and stop asking me questions because you know damn well why they are deleted."

didn't read any posts which were "sarcasms, insinuations, and whines" about deleted posts, so what are you referring to ?

But Alan, asking questions is not coherent with Zen in the first place. In good old times the Master would simply hit the questioner. Since you haven't provided the Hit-button so far, non coherent answers are used instead.

The sound of one drill whining?  But who said anything about "Zen" and what for is it, this "Zen" oh "zen master wannabe"? It's all coherent to me.
