"Your account at CodeProject has been reported as The member is being abusive or is a troll 10 times and is now deactivated."
There is only two options to report an account - 'troll/abusive' or 'spammer'. If we report you as spammer it will (wrongly) effect the spam filter, so we reported you as 'troll/abusive', as you had abused CP with your copy-paste work...
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
Unfortunately plagiarism is a growing problem on CodeProject. We've tried many things to tackle this issue. We've re-activated accounts of plagiarists and even worked with them to teach them what plagiarism is, and tried to work with them to get their articles in working order.
Experience has taught us this method does not work. A recurring theme with plagiarists is that they want their articles published, regardless of the cost. Publishing an article correctly on CodeProject, that is, publishing an article that aims to teach and exhaustively explains as much as possible about a subject or particular problem and its solution, is far more important than simply getting an article published. The focus should never on being published, the focus should be on using your own words and your own knowledge to help others.
Posting a piece of plagiarized material conflicts with CodeProject's purpose, and is hurtful to a community full of authors. As such, neither your article nor your account will be restored and this will be our last say on the matter.
The question that I asked was simple, but it was a topic I wanted to know more about. The question that I asked: Is there an api that would indicate whether a program was running in interactive mode or batch mode. I'm of the old college where I worked on medium range computers in a mfg environment(BOM, INV, and related)* and there was a lot of questions asked just to get the job done. But in looking around this site, there was an indication that an answer was given to my question. But Sean Ewington, in his infinite wisdom, deleted it. And so, what was the answer? What a bite! I have asked questions in other internet places and received answers, whether they have been useful or dead ends. But I have kept going. But the actions of Sean Ewington are really un-execusable; even though he has keys to this kingdom. But, life must go on and I'll keep learning. Thank you, and hope you have a happy day. vbfingers.
* PC and/or Networks and etc were still in their very infancy, not yet in full development. (Kinda before Sean's time.)
Unfortunately I can no longer see the precise circumstances behind this. Did you have a link in the question? Was your question unanswered for over a week? If the former, it may have looked like spam. If the latter, we have a policy to remove unanswered questions older than seven days if they have been reported. The reasoning is that, after that amount of time, it is unlikely they will ever be answered.
But in looking around this site, there was an indication that an answer was given to my question. But Sean Ewington, in his infinite wisdom, deleted it. And so, what was the answer?
1) If an answer was deleted by sean the content won't bring you further. I am 99.8% sure it was something against site policies (spam, site driving or similars).
2) Check your email, it you don't have switched it off, you have got a copy of the answer in the email account you used to register here.
2b) If you have switched the option off, then you are partially guilty on not knowing what an answer was given to your question
2c) If you do have the email and the answer is against the policies of the site, then come back and apologize to sean, because he was just doing his job.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
When in the article editor there is an "Upload Files" control on the right side. Use the "Browse" button right of it to select the files on your PC to be uploaded or drag and drop them from the Explorer to the input field. Then click on "Upload Files".
Once uploaded they are listed above and can be referenced manually by inserting HTML image tags or by clicking on the icon with the yellow arrow.
It looks like the last blog entry in your feed with the tag is "Understanding OData in simplest way." I suspect this entry just might be slightly too short. And I couldn't find any other entries in your feed with the rel-tag.
