in thread Fed Up

I never thought any feedback is good feedback. Lots of insulting posts should be deleted (not reaped), and anyone who continues to be too obnoxious should have his account closed. Monks who use their powers badly should be punished.

For example, Aristotle voted to reap Perl::Improved Volume 0, Number 1, then insulted me and gave a bogus reason for deleting it--bogus because it goes against the guidelines for reaping, and because it's obviously incorrect, and I clearly pointed it out in more than one reply. And he continued to criticize me for that same bogus reason! He's insane, and I bet he got upvoted for it. He shouldn't have the power to vote on anything.

Then there's sporty, who has the nerve to criticize merlyn for being rude!

Anyway, why would anyone consider getting rid of me? Because of my response to someone who insults me for no reason or for an obviously stupid reason? Because of my response to someone who wants to censor me for defending myself? I announced I was leaving before that.

It's fun to go for -300 and now -400 experience points (which I achieved), but I'd still prefer that the monks be fair and upvote me when I deserve it, and downvote the idiots. I don't want to help or associate with idiots. That's why I'm leaving this community and looking into leaving Perl.

    You think you deserve upvotes?! Maybe if you stopped insulting people for a month

    Did I miss something? Is merlyn beyond reproach? Just because someone is wicked smart and good at what they do doesn't give them carte blanche to be rude. Heck, I've called him out myself...one of my posts was the catalyst for his boilerplate "absolving" him from any culpability for being short with people. Does this make me a bad person? I don't think so. Is it grounds for bannination? Certainly not. Everyone is entitled to their opinion...merlyn and sporty alike.

      I was just pointing out that sporty is a hypocrite. I'm not a fan of merlyn's rudeness.
        Next time just call him a hypocrite, or better yet, don't say anything

    This is a statement about your thinking, not about the feedback.
