I never intended to "troll" this forum. I came here to ask a question about the C programming language and how it compared to Java in ease of use for beginners. The discussion naturally gravitated towards learning languages, books, and things like that. I did not want to initiate some "which language is best" flame war or anything like that. I chose to post here because this looked like a newbie-friendly community. I guess I was wrong. Yes, I know a couple of my comments were not entirely serious. However, those comments were made in posts and threads that were entirely serious and relavent to this forum. Sometimes I make a joke of myself, and particularly jokes about my intelligence. I don't know how that could offend anyone. I think its pretty ridiculous how I am all of a sudden labelled a troll now. I did not know why that thread was deleted. So I did the natural thing and asked why. What do you expect? All I wanted to know was why. I know that moderators are ultimately the ones who make all decisions on any forum, but I was simply curious as to why a thread was deleted. Was it something I said? Was it something someone else said? Am I at fault? Did something happen? Aren't I at least entitled to some sort of explanation? If it wasn't my fault, couldn't have someone at least told me that? So I make a post inquiring as to why this happened and here is what I get from <a href="http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?threadid=27038"that thread</a>:
This board is for C programming specific questions. This isn't for "Is this a good book?", "What's the best language?", "Does this make me look fat?" posts. "What langauge is best" posts are just inviting flame wars, and this board is generally has better uses than to feed the trolls.
What kind of community is this? I'm sorry if I am not an experienced programmer. What type of newbie would you welcome here?Quote:
I believe the thread was deleted for the reasons quzah gave
Also this thread has no purpose but to end in a flame war
"Not dumb one's like you."
I wish I had specific questions to ask about C. I wish I was that far along to ask that. Unfortunately, I don't.
This thread will probably deleted or closed too. So I don't know what the point is. If you people are going to be like this, why don't you just require an IQ test before you allow people to post.
Anyone with a score below what you deem an acceptable level for a programmer, gets their IP banned.
