What is up with this?
When I logged in this morning I was greeted by a very professional message from yours truely at AO.

I invite those who read this, to look at my posts record and let me know where I posted something that would illicit this type of reaction from AO.

this message is an automaticly message from AO when you reached an point of negative antipoints ... but.. dont you have to have 2 red dots to get this message ?? or am i wrong ....

its funny...not very professional either...pissed me off for a sec.
kinda gay...i get neg points for trying to ask questions and learn.
Doesn't this site purport to be helpful...It seems with "automatic" (which we all know still has to be programmed by someone) messages a little more care should be given to the tone.

Memory,...it did say that...it said i was being a pain in the ass. look above.
Someone assigned me some positive points...i bet it was you.

Yeah if you where to get under 0 and then go into negative (-10 to -100 you will go into gray and -100 to -200 you will go into two reds -300 you will get banned) that message will show. It's ok users on AO are not saying that .

Just do me and everyone a favor next time and use the PM feature for that type of post, okay?

Yeah sometimes you got to watch what exactly you say and keep replying about in some posts, or you will end up pretty low on the AP point scale. Though as said before just learn from the mistakes and try to make good posts. If you want to get some positive APs, try writing a good tutorial about something that hasn't been done yet, that will help bring you back to the lighter side of the AP point scale. Or just not worry all too much about it.
Asking questions is a good thing also, but you also have to know what to ask and don't ask. There have been many posts like that. I am not trying to say to not ask any questions, but sometimes you do have to look to see if it's been asked before. Some people do get upset with the same questions being repeated over and over, when it's just ask easy to search for a post as it is to write one.
Please do not be upset, and do not think that the "higher ups" sit and vote on who gets sent a message like that. It's all an automated system just because of what level you are at. It's just some informational protocols setup to do what they are supposed to do, not to target anyone specific.
Good luck on turing the gray into some night light greens!
