in reply to Can I please have multiple downvotes per (certain monk's) posts.

Quite obviously, you are all entirely too self-absorbed with regard to “one Monk among many thousands.”   The gods are free to excommunicate me at any time.   (My only demand is that they must at the same time purge 100% of my posts and comments from the database.)   Otherwise, I shall continue to devote my time and attention to trying in my own perhaps-flawed way to answer penitent’s questions as they come by.   I cordially invite all of you to do the same.   I shall have no further discussion on this thread, and, no, I have no intention of sending any dollars (nor, pounds sterling) to any lawyers (nor barristers).

“Believe it or not, I have far better uses for my time.”   (And, come to think of it, honestly... “don’t you?”)

    You don't have that right.

    I do, theoretically under the EU Right To Be Forgotton Law, but the US has no equivalent.

    Otherwise, I shall continue

    You want me to stop pointing out that 90% of what you post is garbage (technically bankrupt; completely irrelevant to the subject; never a single line of working code; unrecognisable and utterly borked pseudo-code; antiquated, thoroughly deprecated and superceded IT theory; all wrapped over in enough ideographic nonsense to make a typographer's eyes bleed), and meanwhile, you're just gonna carry on doing the same as you've been doing. I should coco.

    A week ago, in a thread where some guy was having a trouble traversing directories; you post some irrelevant waffle about Windows having problems with iterating multiple directories concurrently because of resource issues.

    Beside that it was irrelevant to the OPs Perl problem; the issue you describe wasn't in Windows 8; Window's Server 2013, nor Windows 7 or Window's Server 2005; nor Window's Vista or Window's Server 2003 nor Window's XP; Not Windows NT 4.0 or 3.51. The last time it was a problem was Windows 95/98, but then simply because of running out of memory.

    The problem as you described it, manifested itself in DOS (& Windows 3.1 that was built on top of it). That's 20+ frikkin' years ago. Ancient history. The software Bronze Age.

    If, as a result of your "flawed way to answer penitentís questions"; that guy took your advice and went and completely re-wrote his entire application to avoid holding multiple concurrent directory cursors -- when all he needed was a couple of minor corrections to his code -- you've done him; his company; and maybe his career; real, and possibly lasting damage.

    That should not -- cannot -- be allowed to continue unchallenged.

    You want me to stop pointing out your crap? Stop posting it.

    and, no, I have no intention of sending any dollars (nor, pounds sterling) to any lawyers (nor barristers).

    Oh. Go on. I mean, if he's so desperate for work and so confident of success that he sought you out, may be he'll do it no-win, no-fee.

    Heck. If what I'm doing is so heinous that it caught the attention of a barrister no less, then may be he'll do it pro-bono; to enhance his career.

    Of course; it can only be defamation if it isn't provably true; and everything I've written, has been in direct response to what you've written; and that's all right here in Black & White!

    (Of course, a barrister would have known that!)
