Use the chatterbox
and talk to folks before you post
something like this again. Ask questions. "Where should i
post a node about X?" I am sure that you have been told
"DON'T DO IT MAN!!!" and you would not have been downvoted so harshly.
Do not disrespect this site in a post.
First off, this site was
designed for usability. I use it all the time just fine and
see nothing "cute" about any of it. Secondly, you didn't
build this site, nor are you a member of pmdev
. In my
mind, you really haven't even earned the right to complain
about this site yet ... but thankfully vroom
site and not me. ;)
Don't complain to us in a Meditation! Complete and post
I am sorry that you don't like the book,
but why didn't you just wait until you completed your review
and discuss this there. A good review needs pros and cons,
this would be so much more appropriate there.
Do not title your post the name of a book, module, etc.
You are level 4. You should know by now how the
search mechanism works at this site. You should include the
name of the book or module, but you should also include
text that describes how the book or module relates to your
post. The name by itself should be reserved for a Review
or possibly even a Tutorial.
Don't let this get you down.
We still love you. :)
I do hope that you complete your review and post it
accordingly. Your gripes are very valid, it's just the
way in which you present them that could have been less
negative and more constructive.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
