    I guess the answer is: "it doesn't, your problem sucks, the end."

    I had to like this post because it had 9 likes and I wanted to give you a badge because your stupid post was stupid and I hope the badge notification irritates you.

    I love the randomness of this site, and many things tickled me into posting here, regardless of the most obviously expected backlash I would and I did get.

    Everyone gets that for something at some point. It's probably not personal.

    @cregox said:

    I'll get to learn more about you and maybe try to join in, if that matters to anyone... ๐Ÿ˜œ

    The more the merrier! We can also help to cure your Discourse Syndrome.

    So Discourse lets an automatic badge be manually awarded but then revokes it for not meeting the criteria?!

    I think you can stop it from happening. There's a checkbox, at least:



  • [spoiler]9 = 90[/spoiler] What do I win?

    Dunno. You're a genius and can be proud? It's from OP's blogpost (nb. published via Discourse).

    Maybe you get to wear this shirt now:

    They mean f(2)=6, but, like Jeff, they are also undefined and just say 2=6 instead. So, yes, their math skills are bad.

    Oh, the irony.

    This means you're undefined

    (Btw, the fact that when it comes do discourse on mobile, it almost works only on iOS, wellโ€ฆ just further proves you're undefined you need the tee, you need the i's,, or elseโ€ฆ you'll never be civilized. )

    Now, I know nothing about you guys. So, hello! How are you?

    Hi

    @cregox said:

    You've just did there to me, what you seem to be accusing Jeff to do. Pre-judged without knowing enough.

    If someone said that McDonald's was the best burger ever... I don't think it's wrong to assume that they have some kind of a fetish and not an objective opinion.

    @cregox said:

    And boy, I'm a piece of work to digest, if you try...

    That's kinda.... the point. That's why we posted your post.

    @cregox said:

    Now, I couldn't post what I was writing due to "new user" limitations to 2 links. Let me try to hack my way out of this by editing the post...

    It's odd that you bring up... a bug? In defense of you saying Discourse is great?

    @cregox said:

    Nope, doesn't work anymore. Any other clues? I got my topic in my pastebin, in case you want to help / hear more.

    Surely you can get your point on without a link?

    @cregox said:

    I now can see how I could as well have been banned from meta as well.

    Criticism seems off topic there. Something about TOXICTM

    @cregox said:

    In fact, I don't, but I wish I did.

    And what are you defending? I'm confused here.

    @cregox said:

    Sometimes we do things wrongly unintentionally and it's important to hear the feedback.

    If that feedback is being banned, we've heard already.

    @cregox said:

    And sure enough, it was deleted, right? Tell me about that feeling! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    I feel like that awkward sales pitch where at some point you realized, you have no clue what's being sold to you here.

    What the hell is happening here?

    @cregox said:

    In the past, I sure have noticed a few times of how Jeff can be considered an ass and, well, truth is if you want to make a stance you can never please everyone.

    That's not making a stance....

    "We're your family now." is not making a stance....

    It's cult delusional....

    I'm so confused!?!?!

    It will not only become the wordpress of forums, it will probably become the google of talking. It could even eventually resolve what's broken about email or messaging, although their small team would never claim this. Okay, maybe I'm overstating it... But it is this awesome!

    Yeah... it's email software.... um.... look....

    OMG you're using it for blog site?

    Seriously, undefined are you smoking?



  • Don't take me the wrong way. You seem level headed, but I'm just satirical like this. You poked my satire bone....

    To put it in perspective, I'm the dude that elected himself mayor on the first day of the current Mafia game we have going here....

    @cregox said:

    I don't know.

    That's not even counting that we've already pointed out some forum software that's coming down the pipe that has already done what Discourse tried to do, but better.

    Even their fake scrollbar is vertical..... spoooossssshhhhhh MIND BLOWN

    Please tell me the one time you've clicked the green.... no wait, lightish blue, bar and typed a number and clicked go..... because post numbers are arbitrary... and there to tell you when you scrolled down instead of up.

    The posts don't even have their number next to them.... you have to gauge by the left number that arbitrarily changes as you scroll.

    I think post 116 puts it best.

    Please click in the box, type 116, and click go, because I don't know how to quote posts.

    (but don't tap the scroll bar up then down, or it magically changes to 118) DiscrolledTM

    Me neither :'(

    And I'd guesstimate that at least a few hundred of my posts have been focused on pedantic dickweedery in regards to the proper usage of terms like "appropriation", "-phobia", "discrimination", "gender", etc.

    So....Did we scare @cregox away? I am still waiting for some interesting justification of Jeffs behaviour and Discourse and all that ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    Or maybe we convinced him that Discourse and it's developers might not be changing the world?

    What I am trying to say is: this topic needs a thrilling conclusion and won't be the one giving one here.

    Filed Under: Come on, @cregox!



  • He's probably off spreading the "good word" of Discourse like a good disciple of TCotCDCK.



  • @xaade said:

    I'm confused here.

    I refer you to the topic title which (at the moment) contains the phrase incoherent ramblings.

    Filed under: Some people think you're always confused, but that's a different flamewar.



  • @xaade said:

    What you mean?

    @xaade said:

    I often can't do it even with a link! ;P

    And I'm not defending anything, I was just giving my first impressions. A tad randomly.

    The feedback wasn't "being banned", I wasn't implying anything in specific there. Way more often than not, when I want to imply something in that sense I will just say it instead.

    Got the satire dude, don't worry. I won't get flamed / trolled that easily. And even if I do, I won't care. How many people do you know would have come here and done what I've done?

    What I still don't know because, well, I still haven't done my homework, is who are tdwtf, who got banned and precisely why. From my point of view, I still think Jeff had some good reasoning...

    Also from my point of view, I don't give a fuck. If he bans me like you say he did to you, without talking, without anything, just because I did a few Pull Requests they didn't like and pushed 1 button, I will migrate everything over to something else (probably Flarum at this point) and he will win an enemy.

    I think I'm in a different position, but I know that my opinion for him, or most of anyone, matters almost nothing. I'm nobody (financially). So, I sure can see it happening... โœˆ
