    That's not a rant. (Choose categories wisely, young Jedi!)

    And welcome to devrant. 🙂

    @SaharDevep you said in your bio that you dropped out. What did you drop out of, exactly? 🙃
    High school? Uni? Work?

    @NoMad
    I dropped out of uni to focus on my programming
    I'm really new to this tho
  • 3
    @SaharDevep 🤔 huh. But you could have changed course in uni to study programming instead, right?

    @NoMad
    Actually I was studying cs but I wasn't really learning much. some of our instructors didn't seem to know much about programming and we kinda had to memorize stuff instead of underestanding them. Although some of the lessons were useful like data structures but I wanted to be more practical and have experience in the working enviornment. Couldn't wait 4-5 years lol

    @SaharDevep Where the fuck is the difference. Typical Quora answers I tell you. Almost on the level of uni answersheets.

    Just to confirm, is insulting people something allowed?

    @3rdWorldPoison does it matter? We're all here to vent our frustration with stuff we can't fix, as people whose main purpose is to build and fix.

    FYI, the difference is where ranting could included sarcasm, swearing, and not aimed at finding a solution, while complaining is.

    @dIREsTRAITS I don't think there's anything against it. Just keeping everything civil should suffice.

    @dIREsTRAITS depends. Are they being shitheads? Then yeah. But in general, bullying is not encouraged. The community does occasionally get behind banning some people.

    @NoMad
    Thank you! :D

    @NoMad You took it quite literally I assume. Just trying to make some jokes on Quora.

    Anyways, if it's being talked about, it really doesn't matter I suppose. The meaning is purely etymological jargon.

    Btw, complaining may not always imply the intention to find a solution. Maybe it's just that rant has the connotations of being exaggerated and you can get away with over-expressing without being called out for it.

    @3rdWorldPoison don't mind me. I'm already pissy with python and google for some weird events that won't ever make it to a rant. 😛 Sorry for taking it literally. Yeah quora answers are sometimes a witchcraft than actual answers.

    @3rdWorldPoison how can we consider a person civilized if you allow them to insult you, sorry but i don't think insulting comes from civilized people unless they are close enough like work buddies or close family and curse each other in a friendly way
  • 1
    @dIREsTRAITS so it's alright if I tell you "fuck off, but in a friendly way"?? Lolololol
  • 0
    @NoMad you can say it if you know me in person, i will accept it from you this time haha
  • 0
    @dIREsTRAITS Just difference in world views. Sure for you it might seem this way. For me it's much more friendlier with everybody I talk to.

    It comes down to what is comfortable to you. And if it isn't, you can simply walk away from the conversation, maybe add in a bit of acknowledgement.

    Also btw, I'm talking about banter, not really insults, which now that I think about it is kinda goofed of me to not clarify earlier.

    @NoMad Sure, a good "fuck off" to you too, miss :D

    @NoMad a creamy fuck you from me to you, hahah.. no hard feeling haha

    @3rdWorldPoison good point of view

    @dIREsTRAITS well, so I guess your issue was not being civilized after all. Rather, you wanted a green light to be vile.
    You do you. I'mma be judging you based on consistency of your word and action tho.

    @NoMad hmm i guess i will return that comment to you back, who started using the F* words?

    @dIREsTRAITS Being "civilised" only work when the other person has a brain. After you've been "around" (no innuendo), you'll soon realise that's not the case with many. Same thing with "common sense", not all that common.

    That being said, I was never there.

    "Just to confirm, is insulting people something allowed?" - "animal-human", lmao isnt it a bit hypocritical to cry about being "insulted", which i doube in the first place you were at all. When you yourself just insulted them with that little remark.

    Besides getting told not to post in the wrong category, posting stackoverflowish things etc, is not insults.

    @Frederick Actually when you go to the wild you might encounter wild animals that might hunt you, they are agressive in every way, I don't see the difference between an agressive animal and an agressive human being when they welcome you with insult, I guess there is many other ways to pass a message than insult a person and the thing is, when you insult a person don't expect them to be okay with it, they will attack you twice because they didn't expect such behavior from you specially when they are used to use a respected language.

    And if the category is wrong as you mentioned, you could advice them and that's all, and to give you an example, let's say I work at Starbucks and you came in and asked for a pizza!!! would you be okay for you if I say, Get the fuck out of here and go away we don't sell pizzas here!! ... Just because the person is behind a screen doesn't give them the right to insult people.

    @NoMad so much for being inviting to newbies! One might think it's only applicable to newbies you like. This one is clearly not accustomed to the environment here, and english is probably not their first language. Assumption of being a troll isn't very compassionate!

    @camel no worries buddy, i got it :)

    @camel when the fuck did I call him a troll? And when the fuck did I say we should accommodate the newbies? I just said if they make a fucking mistake in their first post, don't downvote them without telling them why.

    Now. Your buddy here, pretended to care about "being civilised" and I put that notion to test. And now you're trying to "prove" that I didn't do what I said I do? You have issues.

    I'm out. I don't want to spam OP's first post any further.

    @NoMad I think its way past that point for @SaharDevep

    @NoMad I'm not trying to prove anything, sorry about that. I was just pulling your leg on something I thought would be harmless. My bad!
  • 1
    @camel pulling... my... leg...

    I see how it went south. Ok. We did not see eye to eye on that one.
    But honestly, reread the conversation again and this time try to read the tones as well. (And hint: I don't like to be insulted for no fucking reason)
