    Apologies

    You guessed it, the title is a lie.

    Ban me. Now. I mean it. I wouldn't want the foul stench of cockyness, sarcasm and obnoxiousness to rub off.

    I've had enough of forums, I really have. If any of you were looking to push me off, you've done it.

    Quite a shame; I was hoping to stay longer.

    Some things while I was here:

    1) Rarely did anyone answer a question of mine without being as sarcastic or as cocky as possible.

    2) nvoigt, we got off on the wrong foot. I realise you're a much more experienced programmer than I, and I take back all I said.

    3) Govt, sorry about the avatar. Was kinda funny at the time (for me at least).

    4) Fordy, nice post-locking count you've got there.


    Well you're laughing like mad now, so don't stop on my account. If I'm not banned by tomorrow morning, well, I guess I'll come and see how everyone's managed to conjur up those infamous 'you obnoxious wanker' replies. Should give me one final laugh, eh?

    Cheers to all you guys who didn't give me grief.

    You don't have to be banned. You've just been a bit spastic and maybe we don't get your sense of humor. Just chill out and you'll be fine.

    Seriously. Neither cprog or ES are super high traffic forums that have people posting tons day and night. It ebbs and flows. Stop spamming the crap out of the forums and you'll be ok.

    I agree with you ahluka. There are some here that are just mindless jackasses.

    Of course there are. There are almost 16000 members here.

    Most of us are good guys, though.

    Give you grief? Quit the martyr complex.

    You've had 2 official warnings for breaking board rules (from 2 different mods for 2 different reasons), and you've got away with a lot more. If you want to stick around, then it's in your own hands - live by the rules. Otherwise you will be banned.

    To be honest, when I saw your first couple of recent GD posts, I just thought you were bored. Then after the padlocks started appearing I thought it was a joke. I didn't think it would come to this so soon.

    If you're looking for "live" discussion, try an IRC channel, #c on EFnet. There's a bunch of psychos on there too, but you'll be able to retort in real time. Good selection of people.

    Consider CProg to a "shirt and tie" forum. Yes, it was looser before, but these days the more informal discussions occur at entropysink.

    I really hope you don't go/get pushed out. We need all the English people we can get, in the face of all these canucks and other ruffians (looking at you, ob)...

    ahluka is awesome! I loved your posts that got locked (and I think deleted as well lol). I remember when I broke down on these forums too, you've just gotta evolve yourself into the environment. This is an environment where it's hard for sarcasm, but easy for deep thinking (generally speaking). Depending on the way people react to what you do should tell you what you need to change to stop bad things from happening .

    Chilled

    Right, I sorta felt stupid for posting that... well you know. Anyway, I've chilled, just had a shower, got Deep Purple on (Hush ) and I'm cool.

    I guess my sense of humor is a bit weird. Very weird actually. I dunno I just find randomness = humorous. A good example: http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/?t=...ate=2004-09-20

    I know I've posted some nonsense, or *spam* (I hate that word . Processed meat makes my wretch) and I'll be good, promise.

    Ah I'm all refreshed. Life feels good. Pink Floyd rule.

    Now, this may seem like a crazy idea, but what do you guys think of having another forum under General Discussion for humorous posts. Not weirdo-humorous alá mine, just links to joke and things.
