Re: There should be a few rules for SO


1 - Don't answer a question that wasn't asked, just because that's all you know which is vaguely connected to the subject.

2 - Don't ask the querent why do they want to do that, why would anyone want to do that, then refuse to answer anything at all because it's stupid to want to do that.

3) - After doing number 1 above, then don't come back and complain that your answer wasn't selected as the solution and demand that you do so.

4) - Don't complain that someone else was selected as the solution while yours was clearly and obviously much better.

5) - Don't nitpick over some trivial point and claim that because the question isn't a question you think is really a question then it should be taken down.

6) - Don't!

7) - Just don't!!!!
