Sorry. Yes I did apologize. I'm not being sarcastic.
« on: April 17, 2011, 01:14:05 am »
Unlike many people, I'm not going to complain over a ban, but instead admit to being responsible for it. Ban me as much as you need, just mind the fact that I have moments of innate idiocy. Sorry. I think I'm going to play it safe now and not share my opinion on anything. Continue rating this down if you wish.


-Sincerely, a split-personality disorder victim that forgot his name

PS: If this is trolling or complaining, it is not intended and I take all responsibility for it.

I'm glad you recognize that you did wrong and apologised. The ban was due to the comments in the Ndless thread and the one in the Lua thread (saying Interpreter? Crap, or something like that). Normally we warn first even for such posts, but the nDoom rule enforcment policy is still under effect right now (until the end of May), so we are stricter. People rated down the posts, although it seems you have removed two of them. I'm not going to rate down this new topic, though.

You just have to remember that people spent lot of efforts in making these calculator programs and you have to be careful and respect them for their work, especially that they have a limited amount of time to work on them due to life.

(By the way the regular rule enforcment policy after getting warnings is a 1 week ban then after more warnings permanent. However, an invasion occured a month ago x.x)

Seconded. When stating stuff like you did, you have to think about the work done by others, hence you'll be rated down and perhaps warned or banned in case you disrespect other members.

Nevertheless, I like it that you admit that you did something wrong.

I probably wasn't clear about the interpreter thing either, I just meant that I was generally unhappy that it was not a compiler. I didn't intend to say "Re-write the entire program because it's awful".

Ah ok. I guess some people probably took it as an attempt to start a language war or something (kinda like if someone goes in a C# thread and starts saying it sucks).

I put an edit on that post to add clarity and prevent any further problems it may have caused.

I also noticed the new text in your signature.
