I admit that I have a "passion for precision" - it serves me well as a programmer, and was a beneficial trait in film postproduction and archeology.
I am a frequent contributor at drupal.org, and my pforp seems to be appreciated there... I post issues for broken code (often with a fix that becomes a patch that gets included in a new release) - sometimes the problem can be one extra "u" in the wrong place. It takes pforp to find a problem like that...
My pforp sometimes annoys people, as these comments from mods of a popular forum demonstrate. "M" said,
This obsession about who is "right" and who is "wrong" is a problem.
To add to my previous three points, you will not:
- Attempt to force any discussion to a strict adherence to the original question.
- Insist that one response is "right" because it answered the original question more directly (even though other responses provided useful information).
- Obsess about who is right and who is wrong, particularly based on technicalities.
- Attempt to police any other behaviour on the forums that you consider to be undesireable. If you have a concern about anything that is happening here, please contact a moderator.
I don't want to have to block you but I will if any of these behaviours continue.
and "g" added,
I can only presume there is a bare patch in the carpet in front of your computer from your stamping your feet all day long.
You have had your warning from M. You know the new rules and how you have to conduct yourself from now on.
Btw, blocking you wont be huffy, it will be a pleasure as not only are you crass, rude and arrogant, but you just wont shut up when asked or told.
These responses were triggered by
Sadly, "g" never had the "pleasure" of blocking me.
To paraphrase Groucho Marx,
I don't care to belong to a forum that accepts people like me as members.
