Some reminders. Please read especially newbs.
Ok things have started to seep back in that I havent seen on AO for a while. For one people are just posting all kinds of topics in General Chit Chat, its more a pet peeve for some members than anything but there are plenty of forums, just a quick browse to see the relevent one. Also some members only post in specialist boards they are interested in so you may get more relevent help so its in your interests too.
Secondly the flaming of newbs like in the virus thread was quite sad, tell him why he is wrong or at least make sure he is doing something illegal. It took a while before nihil I think just posted what he wanted, the way people acted you would think his mission in life was to build some kind of super virus. Plus the amount of antipoints given for flames is a joke, give them to people who post tutorials or help newbies in the Newbie forum or something.

Agreed... I get most of my green dots for being an ass. And things should be handeled better. But remember no one needs our help to know whats right and wrong. Peaple should also know what is what when they see the long list of DOs and DO NOTs on the main page before they even sign up. It should be more than clear that those types of threads are not very welcomed. I myself includeing others signed up here simply because it was the viod of such lame stuff. And if I do want to talk about virii then I go to some place that welcomes what I know about virii such as VX sites. Super virus? Of course thats his goal... the majority of these kids would love to have themselves or thier programs in the news.
Oh and if you mean posted what he wanted as in that lame mirc script... that was me not nihil. What he did do though was good. He basicly let the guy know what a moron he was without actually saying it up front and he did it with a smile

Hi guys, guess I screwed that one up huh?
I did not neg the guy, and handed out positives to those who upheld AO principles, also to stop the thread from going suicidal.
I felt that his question showed such lack of understanding, that he could not be malicious or harmful..............just misguided by his self-appointed "leet" friends at school.
The advice I gave him would answer his question ( ) but keep him out of mischief?............as he apparently had no programming skills, it was the best I could suggest, to teach him, yet prevent him from commiting anything antisocial?
OK I took the piss............but I am human?..........I am susceptible to those frailties?.............I make mistakes. And he did sort of deserve a bit of stick?
I tried to bring the thread back online, as we all say to new persons...........browse this, browse that?......but the contents of the thread were a bit lacking?.....not a good one that time IMHO?
On the other hand Ennis old chap..........you closed a thread today, that was a perfectly valid question............" how are antiviruses coded" or something like that?.............I could have answered that, because I don't think the question actually meant "coding" ..........I believe he meant designed?
After all, they are coded the same as any other proggy?
Oh well................and leave paperclips alone.........they have great uses in computing...........even though they are a French invention...........if enough are interested in that challenge, I will write something in tech humour over the week end?
I would say "friendly fire"...........most I ever did was half a dozen sheep........84mm is not my calibre it would seem?
