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 runs this site and not me. ;)


Don't complain to us in a Meditation! Complete and post that review! 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.
