Hi saouq

> I don't know who posted it.

You haven't posted since 2015 and might not know how damaging the workings of certain monks have become.

So please be tolerant of some reflex answers...

> I question your attempt to test the AM.

I welcome it, because finding an example highlighted that this "meta-character problem" is far less dangerous than the usual ones.

There are far too many dogmatisms in IT which need to be questioned.

    I will not.

    No one needs to post by reflex. We'd all be served better by well-considered posts.

    Poor responses are best handled by writing good responses. (Which you did.) Attacking the author isn't helpful. Attacking them on weak points is even less so.

    While it's true I haven't posted here (except maybe for some of my own drive-by AM postings from time to time) since 2015... it's also true that I started posting here in 2002. We never had a shortage of monks posting bad info. I even have some recollection of sundialsvc4. Don't feed the trolls is as good advice now as ever.

      I'm confused!

      What exactly is your strategy now when facing poor responses from a "SunDroll" ?

      He's not a troll and survives without feeding.

      Our concern is to warn the unaware from his preachings.

      > Poor responses are best handled by writing good responses

      You are welcome to come back for a while and write good responses to his claims... :)
