in reply to Re^9: "" but true
in thread "" but true

doesn't help anyone and keeps those needlessly busy who aim for high information quality on this site

Lanx that is a perfect description of the majority of your voluminous bloviating on this site, be it:

  • half-baked Emacs thought experiments
  • three-line debugger "demonstrations"
  • fragments of computer theory thrown out with "I don't have time to test now" disclaimers
  • riffs on world history or whatever other off-topic topic arises at the nether regions of threads
  • ...

Besides, who made you the arbiter of how serious a tone a poster must use in a discussion on this discussion site? You of all people, whose 'jokes' posted outnumber working programs posted by orders of magnitude?

Hope this helps!


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      "again" what? I called you neither pompous nor an ass. I simply pointed out that you are among the last people who should be harassing Bod or anyone over the quality of their posts.

      The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

        46 8 LanX 47 4 ikegami 48 81 Marshall 49 118 sundialsvc4

        LanX, I expect you're well-satisfied to make the top 50 ... and proud of being a full three spots ahead of your hero sundialsvc4.

        Sorry, but any list of top 50 all time monks that has eyepopslikeamosquito in third place has no credibility. As if that were not enough, the inexplicable appearance of sundialsvc4 in the top 50 had me checking if the date of the post was early April.

        I was further surprised by the non-appearance of PM legends Erudil and brian_d_foy. While Erudil only made 13 posts, they all garnered over 100 XP, their current node reps being: 793, 667, 415, 373, 320, 225, 211, 210, 205, 159, 144, 116, 104.

        Two more pieces of PM arcana:

        Sigh ... since many people tend to believe in such "science", here some background:

        • Going into deeper discussions, like foolishly replying at level 13 (sic) destroys the XP/Post ratio.
        • Coming late to the party too, since the voting average is deflating over the years°

        Here some "alternative" facts: ²

        • Your top 5% posts (98) range between 56 and 31
        • Bod's top 5% posts (23) range between 28 and 15
        • My top 5% posts (506) range between 70 and 28

        Let's put this into relation with your alleged "top-monk" (which I respect nevertheless)

        • FunkyMonk's top 5% posts (54) range between 108 and 38 ³

        But well ... this doesn't prove that I'm not saying foolish things from time to time ...

        So please show me those threads where I stated anything like ...

        > "That really shouldn't be allowed"

        ... without giving plenty of evidence, links and even example code?

        I think I also tend to reply to every new argument without resorting to a cheap "you know I'm kidding"

        According to your "statistic" this should be an easy game ...

        Cheers Rolf

        °) eyepopslikeamosquito can tell you more about it. Ask yourself, how comes 30% of the top 20 saints haven't been here for years without loosing rank?

        update

        And one also gets XP for voting, which makes it even more complicated.

        ²) NB: this isn't adjusted to the deflation over the years, because that's not easily done. But it was always consensus that "XP is only a game" anyway.

        ³) he barely passed your 1000 posts minimum, because he has only 10% of my volume. But if you look at my 54th best post you'll see a reputation of 40 and his 506th only at 16.
