I don't mind if you down vote my answers on stack-overflow. But unless you leave a better answer or a comment explaining why, you are a fucking troll and an asshole.

I MEAN, YOU SHOULD TAKE A BIG STEP BACK AND LITERALLY FUCK YOUR OWN FACE!!!!

You aren't helping me or others learn from our mistakes by showing us the better way.

    Welcome to devRant! This rant seems to be a really good start.
  • 17
    And thus my friend, you see the reason why I found devRant!

    As it happens, dR users have helped me resolve an issue which was voted for closing on SO by several people.

    I think you'll find we're a friendly bunch on the whole, though we do swear a lot, and @AlexDeLarge has all the tact of a flaming sledgehammer to the bollocks (he's very eloquent though, and knows his whiskey).

    From the looks of things though, I don't suppose you'll mind the swearing. Your question has all the hallmarks of a seasoned ranter.

    Welcome! Pull up a chair and tell us your worries.

    @oudalally Thanks. I put that in my bio.
  • 10
    I'm all for SO commenters fucking their own face (+1), but why did they have to take a step back first? I don't think that'll help. Best they just get on with it immediately.
  • 6
    @AlexDeLarge For à first rant it’s fucking promising
  • 5
    @oudalally oh are you quoting me?
  • 3
    @2lazy2debug I am indeed! Sorry, I'd have tagged you, but I'm stuck into a WPF problem (as per) and my runtime is prioritised on that.
  • 3
    @oudalally did you open a SO post?
  • 3
    @2lazy2debug Now I'm curious, how did he quote you?
  • 6
    @AlexDeLarge I'm referring to @2lazy2debug helping me with my issue regarding the stuck control key issue.

    @2lazy2debug I've not opened an SO post for a while. The last one was the one you helped me with.

    I did open a post on the photography stack exchange site recently tho as I managed to get some dust embedded in the gelatine layer of some developed film and need to clean it out. They're actually really helpful on there, and some of the regulars have been photolab technicians for some 50 years and are seriously knowledgable.

    This writing style reminds me of someone :)
  • 4
    @oudalally that’s nice to read :) at least you have some kind of reference point
  • 5
    @2lazy2debug That's true, there were others who helped.

    But you were going to take your laptop out to a bar and do some debugging. I don't think anybody on SO actually bothers to do that.

    @Les-Grossman If you can post a link to your SO question, we might be able to help with it :)
  • 4
    @oudalally I think it’s a matter of personality, honestly I am not a big WPF dev but I told myself that trying out any giving an external output would be more helpful than a bunch of links
  • 4
    @wateringdisease who does it remind you of?
  • 7
    As @2lazy2debug rightly pointed out, other people helped as well, so credit where it's due to @theKarlisK, @CodePatronus, @Condor and @devTea for assisting, summoning others who can help, and for trying to keep the question active on SO.

    It all helps, and your efforts were very much appreciated

    @oudalally... Can you help me too??

    @bigus-dickus seriously what happened to that creature who was bragging about going to china, to watch stuff on deep web like people eating fetuses alive?
  • 5
    Kinda sucks that my summoning didn't cause a wild @dontbeevil to appear though 😟 but anyway, glad you got it resolved! This community certainly is one of a kind 🤗
  • 5
    @wateringdisease eating fetuses alive?! 😨
  • 3
    @wateringdisease I haven't a clue of who you are pointing at.

    @Condor @AlexDeLarge did you make some kind of league? Thank you for the ++s 🙏

    @CodePatronus The easiest option to remove the --'s is to delete the questions which are marked as duplicates. The negative rep will be undone.
  • 1
    @bigus-dickus @Condor oh I'm sorry you must have missed that one. maybe @Alice can you remind us a little your sweet conversation with this person, about videos of people eating fetuses and going to China to watch them etc?
  • 3
    @wateringdisease Sounds like a very.. intriguing.. person :') not sure how folks like that end up here on devRant but hey, they're fun to conduct downvoting challenges on before they end up getting banned :P
  • 3
    Hey guys, this thread is going the wrong way. It's about stack overflow, right?
  • 4
    @wateringdisease This is done with, and it's been dropped.

    Stop resurrecting the same argument. Seriously, you made your point, now leave it.
  • 6
    @wateringdisease I don't see a reason other than provoking to mention that. If the person you mean is the person I think they were -if- they already had an account before their last one, I disliked them for a long time throughout their multiple accounts, but since we had some fun here lately, I got to like them despite my initial dislike for them because apparently they changed in -some- aspects.

    If the same person comes back for their next account, and it indeed is the same person I think they were, you don't have to fear anything cause they are always playing a different role.

    Personally, I am sad that said person left devRant with their last account because I got to like them. Especially because we shared our humor and were able to exaggerate everything while talking without needing to play safe to not offend each other.
  • 5
    @wateringdisease I just don't get the purpose behind it except for provocation.

    Even if this is the same person, they are most likely not going to post the same things with their new account that you, for some reason, hate so much and feel a need to point out.
  • 1
    @Alice "for some reason"? umm yeah I dont like people who brag about being a sadistic psycho who wants to watch videos of fetuses being eaten??
  • 3
    @wateringdisease Ok, lets put this in plain terms.

    The person you're referring to is rutee07.

    That account is closed. There is no need to bring this up.

    You are comparing the writing style of this post to that same person. The person posting this rant might be the same person, but might not.

    You yourself commented that rutee07 did not post about technical issues therefore this post is not in keeping with the premise that you yourself stated.

    There is no need to bring this up again other than to dredge up the same argument to fuel it.

    This is petty, pointless behaviour, and is baseless at best.

    Drop this, there is no point whatsoever in perpetuating the same argument other than to satisfy your own compulsion.

    Just grow up!
  • 6
    @wateringdisease 1. that's actually not what was said in these conversations. If you feel the need to mention these things, at least do it right and don't make up details, although the original is more "cruel" than what you think was wrote, lol.

    2. I hope you don't seriously believe they are flying regularly to China to eat fetuses. Because that's the actual content of the conversation you are mentioning.
  • 2
    @Condor busy period sorry guys 😈
  • 4
    @wateringdisease And if that person is not here?

    If they close their account?

    Is there a point in preaching to a load of people who are not that same person with whom you have the grievance in the first place other than to be difficult?

    You dragged this up in an unrelated topic. So what are you trying to prove?
  • 2
    RIGHT!!! I hate that. I don't get angry very often but man this really grinds my gears.
  • 5
    @wateringdisease

    They are a human being. And we only had some fun at devRant. I don't have any private contact to them. And you already know what happened. They posted a rant, people turned the discussion into a different direction, they later on deleted their account. If the thread was the cause, I don't know. Maybe.

    @wateringdisease I've been civil in spite of your provocation.

    You lectured me on how I shouldn't get angry with clients - I was civil in my responses.

    I explained how I don't kick off at them, yet you continued to harass.

    You're not making throw away comments, you're not making trivial slights, you're trying to rile people up.

    You hijacked a thread to bring up an argument that was over and done with based on nothing other than a perceived similarity in writing style, and yet you dredge it up and spew bile and vitriol like some self appointed keeper of the moral high ground.

    Your arguments and standpoint are based on nothing other than a thin veneer of pseudo righteousness.

    There are a number of people on here who will be able to confirm that I tend to be quite metered in the way I interact with people, and that is how I've tried to interact with you.

    I don't know rutee07 - I'm not trying to defend his/her viewpoint, but you are being utterly belligerent for no good reason
  • 2
    @wateringdisease Are you going to scrutinise every other post from a new user who has worded their writing in an angry manor and suggest that they are also rutee07?

    Do you plan to drop this any time soon, or have you made it a personal vendetta?

    And at what point did I say you should thank me for it? I do not want thanks for it, I'd actually like to have a conversation with a person who likely has a lot of similar interests.

    And no, it's not a threat. I don't make threats. What could I possibly do?

    It's an appeal to sense which you probably have but are not exercising.
  • 3
    Certain people are getting more annoying with every passing day. He/she/it is gone. I don't give a fuck who rutee07 really was and neither should anybody else, in my eyes, even though I had and still have a hunch. Who cares when their account is gone anyway? You can't know for sure, that's the beauty of anonymity.

    Go on with your boring fucking lives, goddamned.
  • 4
    @wateringdisease Right, let's put this in bullet points.

    1) I'm not making threats, it would be pointless. I don't know you, I don't know where you live, what would be the point.

    2) I get that you're morally offended, but the person who is the subject of your offence has closed their account. Whats the point in bringing it up?

    3) I've been civil, it's a basic courtesy. I would appreciate the same back from you, not because I feel entitled, but it would be a mark of a decent person not to perpetuate it.

    4) The argument was over with, you brought it up, and the only possible reason for that was to start another argument.

    5) I'm tired, I'm fed up, I've worked a 14 hour day and I'm still not done, and this is one of the few bits of interaction I get with other developers. I'd quite like it not to turn into a massive slanging match.
  • 4
    @wateringdisease And for the record, I do entirely realise that some seriousness is taken from my argument given that my avatar looks like a cross between Freddie Mercury, Salvador Dali and Keith Flint rolled in to one.
  • 0
    @oudalally Ok yes your final point might be right. we should not spoil the beautiful content of this place and fill it with garbage. I just wish you show the same concern when next time someone comes here just to brag about how psycho they are.

    @rant1ng Thanks. I'm a bit slow on these movie references, it seems.

    Oh that wonderful moment when you realise the spare battery for your vape is actually charged.

    I'm in danger of eating a glass of water if I don't have some nicotine soon.
  • 4
    @oudalally don't be so negative. See the positive side of your situation: if you eat a glass of water, your addiction will be cured soon.
  • 2
    @Alice It's a novel method of quitting smoking. Thanks to modern manufacturing, drinking glasses are noticeably cheaper than tobacco, but I'm not certain my mood would improve.

    In fact (and I'm far from an expert), I'd speculate that if I ate a glass of water, not only would I be somewhat more angry than the sodding storyboard animation in WPF has already made me, I would likely spill water on my keyboard which would make it much harder to finish this project off tomorrow.
  • 2
    @wateringdisease With something so outlandish, I would generally regard that as throwaway comments and I would respond to them as such.

    That said, I do understand why somebody could be incensed by it, I just don't think it's worth bringing up a dead topic.

    On another note, I've finally got WPF to behave the way I need it to. It turns out, persistently tweaking, coupled with the large .NET 4.5 Framework reference book has led to some decent results!
  • 5
    @oudalally I am pretty sure what you would spill / spit is less likely water.
  • 2
    @Alice Depends on the size of the glass and how much I ate.

    I had dinner not too long ago, so I doubt I could finish a whole glass.

    Besides, I have no suitable condiments.
  • 5
    @oudalally I doubt there is a typical glass for water drinking purposes that is small enough to not cause internal damage when broken in little shards.
  • 2
    @Alice I'm not certain there's much need for one really. Most edible materials are water soluble to some extent.

    Seriously, this was all about @rutee07? I quite liked the person behind it. Consider this tag to just be a lazy method to gauge whether the account still exists, but if it doesn't link anywhere I'd be very sad to see her go. The many conversations (often with sexual innuendo) were ones that I quite liked. It allowed me to be myself towards others in ways that vastly differ from the classical developer sense that this platform has gifted me already.. I loved it. Whoever she was and whatever accounts she may have had previously, it really saddens me to not have her around here anymore.

    @oudalally... I know that after deleting them off, neg rep will be undone but when I try to delete them, SO says others have put their efforts to write answers so you cannot delete this post...

    In addition to this, in order to remove my ban, I've to improve my existing questions...

    So please upvote them...

    @platypus aww, the fun thread is gone >:
  • 2
    @bigus-dickus Well, it does seem to have gone. Why, I've no idea. I didn't delete it...at least not to my knowledge---unless I had an @Condor moment without even recognizing it.

    The ability to erase history is a dubious power to have.
  • 2
    @Alice Yes. I see. I've no idea why. If the powers that be can restore it, I'm more than happy for them to do so.

    @bigus-dickus If it happened anywhere close to when you reported it then I wasn't even online.

    @platypus I'm sad for the lost content. It was my most favourite thread here.
  • 1
    @Alice Are there any guidelines on posting sexual content? Possibly purged?
  • 6
    @platypus There are only rules against actual pornographic or excessively violent content. None of both fits the content of the thread. If anything, it would be closer to violent content. But that also doesn't really fit.
  • 1
    @Alice Well, I don't know what to tell you then---wasn't down to me (AFAIK). Is there a support channel? I mean technical...not to emotionally support you in your loss of treasured content.

    @bigus-dickus Don't know what to tell you. Unfortunately, I don't have the logs, so will have to remain one of life's mysteries. I'm not in the habit of deleting content---especially when I had no reason to do so.

    @bigus-dickus I've no idea what that means, so yes...no...maybe.

    @platypus 700+ comments.. gone just like that? 😢 You sure did a @Condor there 😂
  • 1
    @Condor No idea what happened to it.

    However, I do think that the ability to delete parts (or all) of conversations is a bad idea in a social channel. Means that the content of others becomes nonsensical---or, worse---misleading.
