'[OT]: about questions and Olin'

I wonder if Olin was warned because if his bad 'mood' before ?
if he was not then he should be given the right to defend himself
I know this list isn't a court but democracy is for everywhere  , even for
cyberworld.


And I don't understand the thing  called " bad question" ?
How can we classify questions like "good " and "bad" ..question is a
question whether independent of it's good and bad..

And again I know that people don't wanna see questions like "What's PIC" in
their email account and they are right..So I think only solution is that
giving more importance to "subject tags"..

If that question had a subject tag like " a very bad question for
experienced but may be good for beginners" then Olin would have not read it
and didn't answered like it were now and he would be still in list.

You have not been following this list for long have you? (not intended
as an insult, and when you read it well it does answer your question)

What gave you that impression? This list is owned by a few individuals,
and that is one of the reasons it is so succesfull. If you want
democracy (or rather a variation where the fastest typists seem to rule)
you can visit the various newsgroups.

There are lots of bad questions, like: incomplete questions, questions
about a banned subject (religion etc), lazy questions (ones that the
poster should be able to answer with less work than it requires a list
member to answer), etc.

BTW there are also 'bad' postings, or rather postings that could be
improved a lot, like when the poster forgets to trim the irrelevant
parts of previous postings ;)

       He was warned, MANY times, by both myself and some of the other admins. The
only reason we gave him as much latitude as he received was the fact he
contributed so much. James however gave Olin a FINAL warning (which was
public I believe), so this wasn't an out of the blue occurrence.

PS. PLEASE trim your posts, there were pages and pages of old posts in yours
that contributed NOTHING except for an extreme waste of bandwidth. Remember,
not all here have cheap internet, some pay per KB, your wasteful post
unnecessarily adds to their costs. TTYL
