Ok, I admit it, I'm the person who teed off the golf in that thread.
I'm a newbie myself, as davorg
and others know. I wanted to see what ways of doing what I suggested there were, as a means of getting a better grip of the language. Admittedly, I'll need to pick over MeowChow
's answer with tweezers to understand it, but I certainly didn't intend to make the thread as a whole inaccessible. There were clear, nicely stated pointers there to the right answer. I was attempting to highlight the fact that the right answer was attached to the 'wrong' question in the FAQ - which I felt was unhelpful to, er, newbies.
Addendum: I'm tired of being asked to use Super Search
. It's a nice feature and all, but sometimes I want to ask the question that's on my mind, in English (or $human_language in general) of real people and get an answer that relates the WTDI to my own application.
