    Stupid threads

    Why does people even bother with asking things like the client/server thread on the win prog board. I think it would be nice if the board policy was to just delete them right away.

    serious answer: deleting threads like that would cause hassle. to be fair they probably don't know better

    Ok I can go with that. I guess that just because I don't like it, it doesn't mean it shouldn't excist, well that would be nice but I usally wake up before that happens.

    It kind of is. I have "deleted" it.

    Sad fact, not every board is being inspected at every second by a mod. The best approach with an obvious baiting like that is to ignore it. Some people get a rise out of posting trolls like that, why humour them?

    We are aware of the "contributor".
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
