Why you got downvoted? Because you posted 4 (now 5) threads in a row
. This is equivalent to scrolling the screen or dumping
text in an IRC channel. You practically monopolized the section.
It's not individual posts in themselves, but the fact that you
were overly chatty and verbose. "This guy seems to be having a rave, let's cut
his enthusiasm a bit"
, that's how the downvoters perceived the situation.
Remember, this is a monastery, and a more reserved, monastic demeanor is required
(if you want to get high reps). Off topic content is accepted, but only if it's really
funny, novel, interesting, well written, and, most important, in small quantity.
My advice: take a break, lay low for a week or so, until most people here forget about
your very existence :), and then start posting again. And don't take it personally, people
are just nicks here, unless they're the regular saints who post every day! :)
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.
