( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Please note that, for several hours, the above node contained just this:

Go write one.   :-D
Now, presumably in response to this original unhelpful reply being downvoted, sundialsvc4 subsequently heavily edited it, adding five new paragraphs, but without indicating he had done so.

This is a violation of long-standing Perl monks posting etiquette, as indicated at the Perl Monks FAQ (How do I change/delete my post? and How do I post a question effectively?): Mark the changed/new content with the word "Update."

Is this a new sundialsvc4 tactic, to go with previously seen tactics (touched on at Re^2: Maximum down-votes per monk/day and Maximum down-votes per monk/day) namely:

  • Not providing code to prove his pet theories.
  • Ignoring posts that demonstrate flaws in his technical advice.
  • Re-posting the same flawed technical advice over and over, even after it has been shown to be flawed.
  • Repeatedly posting the same home-spun wisdoms to questions to which they barely relate.
  • Repeatedly opening new discussions on banning anonymous monk and downvotes
  • ... while repeatedly claiming he does not mind being downvoted!
  • Making unfounded accusations that he is being downvoted by sock-puppet accounts and bots (e.g. here, here, here).
  • Not following up on bugs he claims to experience with this site, in particular being repeatedly logged out.
  • Posting at length on topics on which he has limited experience or expertise.
  • Replying to the wrong post, thus losing context.
  • Decorating posts with extravagant typography, stylistic devices, flowery analogies, and unnecessary quotes.

Update: After being criticized for never posting code, sundialsvc4 appears to be experimenting with a new tactic, namely posting extemporaneous code (again again again again), pseudocode, and untested code and a quasi-Perl sketch with C++ comments. Update: Wow, on Jun 23 2015, sundialsvc4 actually posted some working code!

And still responding to the wrong post I see (and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again). And replying with lots of words but little real content.

Update 2017: And, though I thought it impossible, the annoying typography seems to be getting worse: Re: Anonymous Monk comment(s) on questions.

Update 2015: Wow, sundialsvc4 has all ten worst nodes of the month!
