The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
If the slap of continued down-votes doesn't cause them to re-examine their question asking 'skills', then you just ignore them and give them nothing. Deleting the question means it isn't there anymore - dissallowing any further downvotes to punish the poster - it also _removes_ any downvotes they've already accrued from the question.
You can also re-tag the question as being 'homework' 'gimmeCodez' or something else suitably descriptive and er, 'flattering'
On the rare occasion that this behaviour is not understood and is questioned directly by the poster, I try to make an effort to do both of (a) point out the aspects of the post that are likely to incense the locals (b) offer a suggestion for a different approach that has the same goal.
I'm continually surprised by (a) the number of people that dont 'get it' and so ask questions about their harsh treatment and (b) the number of times the answers to these questions appear to be heeded.
A 'like' button without a 'dislike' button does not a useful feedback system make.. (cough, cough FB)
Why can't I be applicable like John? - Me, April 2011 ----- Beidh ceol, caint agus craic againn - Seán Bán Breathnach ----- Da mihi sis crustum Etruscum cum omnibus in eo! ----- Just because a thing is new don’t mean that it’s better - Will Rogers, September 4, 1932
Guess it finally happened to me. Got hit by a univoter. Interesting.
I noticed your posts contain many terms that in Belgium are considered to be expressions of raical hatred. I assumed you were some kind of neo-Nazi until I figured out you had no idea what you were saying.
