I downvoted the post because I thought it added little to no value to the thread. Obviously, you disagree, and that's fine.
Had Argel not made an issue of it, perhaps the majority opinion would have resulted in an overall postive score for the node, and that would be no skin off my nose.
I am choosing to remain anonymous in this discussion for much the same reasons I don't publicize who I voted for in national elections. I have an account to read, ask, and respond to posts. No ordinary monk can view my voting record, and I doubt those who could pull the data would bother to unless there's a pattern of misbehavior.
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.
