    Now to go infest your DW post with the same meme.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Nobody did. That's the whole freaking problem. I have no idea, because you have posted your questions in various places I don't know about. So why should I spend 30 minutes looking at a problem when there's a good chance somebody else is already trying to help you?

    Apparently you are too selfish to see how absolutely rude that is.

    So, the only thing that matters is what YOU learn, and who gives a crap what other people have to go through to teach it to you? Interesting attitude.
    So me asking a question is selfish? You seem to be angry at something else.

    Did you know that the help is optional? Did you know that you can choose whether you would like to help or not?

    I'm a Mod in 2 forums and when someone asks me a question i try my best to help them, I'm also registered into another forum in which i help beginners with questions that are in my extent knowledge.

    Unlike you i don't get crazy mad because of things like this, You don't seem like a person who likes helping others. so why should you anyway.

    Just drop this nonsense it's getting ridiculous.

    That's right, posting on multiple forums may seem like a good idea to you, but to people who actually help on forums, it looks like a cry of urgency.

    2. What if every single person decided to be as unselfish as you, and post on multiple forums (glares at george2 in particular). Pretty soon, the situation would deteriorate into everyone cross-posting 10 or 20 times just to stand a change of being heard in the noise of everyone elses spamming. At that point, all the helpers would ........ off because the forum would have become unusable.

    > If you don't want to help then don't waste your time on me.
    Just as you're free to keep spamming the boards, I'm just as free to keep complaining at your unselfish behaviour, and generally not helping you (or anyone else during that time).

    Mr big shot. If you don't want to help then don't help. That's it. God damn it dude I really don't want to get into an endless fight with you.

    If you don't like taking some of your *precious* time that you are using to criticize me, to help others then don't help.

    That's it.

    No, asking a question isn't selfish. Asking the same question to 100 people who ALL then go out and spend time answering it is selfish.

    Did you know that the help is optional? Did you know that you can choose whether you would like to help or not?
    You're right, rendering help is optional. It seems it would be in YOUR best interest to understand how to make people more likely to WANT to help you. The cross posting wasn't even that annoying. A few people just pointed out that it's somewhat rude. You could have just acknowledged this and moved on...

    5 - 7 people actually. & i told you why i did it. Obviously you are having a hard time understanding things.

    A few people just pointed out that it's somewhat rude.
    Yes you and Salem. A couple who think of themselves as bigshots.

    You could have just acknowledged this and moved on...
    You could acknowledged my comment and moved on too. Why didn't ya?

    You know they say:
    "if you are not nice, then you shouldn't help others"

    I don't mean to be rude but Get a Life.

    You post around 700 lines of code, asking for help. Do you think ANYONE on this planet can take in 700 lines of code and understand that in seconds? If you do it in 15 minutes, it's just over a second per line of code - and even if we consider that many lines are probably just whitespaces, braces etc, it's probably still only 2 seconds of "processing time" per "meaningfull" line. That's not a lot of time to understand such a large piece of code.

    You don't seem to understand that if you want help, you need to make us think we are REALLY helping you, not just giving the same answer [or similar at least] that someone else posted 2 minutes earlier [and thus made my answer obsolete].

    Yes, cross-posting is very rude, because it wastes peoples time. Try to acknowledge and understand that.
