in reply to Extract numbers in multiple bases

Congratulations to the last person who voted this simple request down. I've had it with the trolls, votebots, and general decline of civilization of PM. I'm outta here.

I downvoted this node on general principle as soon as i read those lines. Then i was extremely surprised to see the rep of the node at 109. Granted, you (jcwren) have been a reg for the year and a half that i've been coming around here, and you've written some amazing code. But posting a question asking someone else to write code based on an elaborate spec of your own design is not (in my opinion) a node that deserves a reputation this high. i'm sure this node would have been downvoted into oblivion except for the following:


  • A well known monk posted it
  • It was posted in the monastery gates (which everyone knows inflates the rep of a post)
  • A well known monk complained (in bold) that the node was downvoted, which i'm sure led some people to sympathetically ++ it
  • </l>

    So i downvoted you just because I can. Which may be childish, but who cares? xp are imaginary points that are redeemable for nothing; what does it matter if your xp goes from 7002 to 7001?
