I think you're taking it way too personally. You're not addling the brains of anyone. That, as it just so happens, is an integral part of learning to code: read, code, make tons of mistakes, learn, and repeat.
But, I have to admit, this is getting very tiresome. Excuse me for a second, I'll be back in a minute...

Why do I say so?
I've started, by using your stuff and, this cost me dearly (far more time, than learning it
correctly, the first time around), later in the process of learning, more advanced
language constructs and/or techniques!
Bottom line is: please refrain fom posting such "oldfashioned" code, in future. Thanks.
Btw: how can this be "not personal"? (Btw: Not the first time, I'm writing this, actually!)
Now, I have a simple question to ask: who made you the 'policy police'
? I can understand your point, but it's not for you
to enforce. Let beginners be beginners, and help and teach them if they want to
. Don't try to shove 'good practices' down their throats; tell them what they are, and let them be beginners. I don't think that you're in a position to tell BasicCoder2 to 'refrain to post old fashioned code', because your code is as old fashioned as I can conceive (at least, the code that I've seen).
You're such a puzzling fella, indeed. In another thread
, you clearly state that you hold a degree
in Computer Science. Then, above, you state that 'you started by using BasicCoder2 stuff' and that it 'costed you dearly' in your learning process. Now, I'm curious: if you're a Computer Scientist, can't you determine when some code is 'beginners code' (as BasicCoder2 wants to put it)
? You remind me of some members here that claim 'extensive experience', and then they get mesmerized by a simple concept such as an array of pointers.
Understand that I'm not attacking you, just trying to comprehend the reason
behind the harrassment
that you've been putting BasicCoder2 through. I'm fed up with it, several other members are also fed up with it (and, admirably, have taken it with an amazing sense of humor), and I can read that BasicCoder2 is also quite fed up with it. It does get old and tiresome, mate.
@BasicCoder2: Back again. Just keep them coming, learning, and being yourself. You don't need to be apologetic all the time; really, that just makes you look like a whiner
. I personally find your code really enjoyable: easy to read, easy to follow, and direct to the point (sometimes quite amusing, too =D). All I can suggest is that you simply let them through
, if you get my drift.
I can be harsh sometimes, but I'm not without a soul, and I don't like unfairness. And I think that this kind of trolling
is getting excessive and unfair.
