@boco: Please explain your complaint against me

#1 Post by MoonUnitZappa » 2013-05-30 20:50

This comment:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=28382#p111847

In my defense:

Original post made on:
Posted: 2013-01-14 09:44

Remained unanswered until I offered an explanation on:
Posted: 2013-03-28 14:53

A duration of approximately 2 and a half months.

My explanation was accurate and polite .. and I made one post and left it at that.

The original poster was not satisfied with my answer due to his own concerns to
which I made no further comment as I had no further information to offer.

The original poster then made some more comments and, from what I can tell,
the OP appears to have replied to a poster who has subsequently been deleted.

Presumably, this is the spammer to whom you refer ?

Finally, in the thread in question, I asked politely and simply who had replied
to a spammer as your post was totally ambiguous, and you accuse me of spamming !

I have recently made another 10 posts, mainly in threads which appear to be
open to general comment, and I have done so with reasonable respect, politeness
and, where appropriate, a little light humour.

I have not spammed.
I have not posted any links to any websites.
I have read many posts to get an idea of the level of the discussions made here.

So, it seems on the one hand you have an obscure scheme to reward members
who post (IE. 500 Syntax error); but on the other hand you don't like it much
when members do post ... ?

I feel I have been maligned :(

What say you ?

No, the spammer post we referred to has been deleted. The OP's reaction is therefore out of context. I opened the thread again (I didn't see your reply in there, first).

I just want to remind you that this is a support forum. Please do not regularly use it for chit-chat. Thanks.

Ok .. seems fair enough.

"chit-chat" indeed ... It gives me a headache trying to read the broken English some people use :|

I realise people from all over the world use your product so I do not expect them to be able to use
English well .. and I realise it is a lot of work to manage such a vast project.

Like I said before .. I don't think any of my posts have been out of line, except may be this thread, which
you are now welcome to close if you see fit.

Anyway, I had no intention of using the forum that way, I would offer some help if I could but I certainly
have no intention of socializing here.

Regards

The problem is of technical nature. The board software cannot differentiate between casual posts and support requests. Everything is shown as New post and listed in the Feed and I have to look after it. So I prefer to keep threads short and on-topic.

Note there's another problem with the board software: If one edits posts, the modified ones do not get shown as New post. Spammers editing their posts later to insert links, or someone making a useful addition to a post, both may go unnoticed by us.

I understand what you mean .. spammers and bots are insatiable a-holes.

I will simply say, I have absolutely no interest in spamming, not now, not ever.

The only website i would like to promote, I have listed in my profile as my WWW contact
and that is sufficient for me.

Anyway ~ we are cool now .. I will let you get on with it .. Good Luck ;)
