Back at the end of November I got banned from this site, I received an email with the following charge;
Quote:
Your account at CodeProject has been reported as The member is a spammer 5 times and is now deactivated.

I initially thought I had been reported as a spanner, which seemed fair enough (not sure how far the use of spanner as an insult has spread the world).

I sulked at being thrown off and vowed never to return, but as The Lounge is still bookmarked on all my devices I have dropped in for a look now and again, but I resisted signing up again.

This was fairly easy as I was off work throughout the whole of December and so not on a computer very much, but returning to work this year I was naturally in need of something extra to help me avoid the work, and began to browse more, feeling myself drawn back in, wanting to reply.

And still I resisted.

But the need to vent has become too great, sometimes you get exposed to something so dumb at work that just cannot be contained, ranting on conventional social media seems unwise, standing in the office and swearing loudly is clearly an unsafe option, my wife doesn't care and refuses to listen. So I have had to come back here, just to have someone to moan at.

Although much of my immediate ire has ebbed away with the time taken to sign up and type this, I will leave with just the one, quick, question.

Why the elephant do those who make decisions on what to spend money on always believe those trying to sell them stuff and ignore all sensible council from those without a vested financial interest?

I just love having to work around poorly conceived and constructed systems that are inferior to what I could write myself.
