    Check Apple's on forums

    and Microsoft's NNTP forums

    How about Mozilla's Forums especially the general Forum

     

    Yes it true for Adobe forums are user to user, basic help. But this Forum particularly for is for complaints about the forum software.

     

    Also, some of the subjects have degenerated to fussing, cussing and other unprofessional behavior. (This I might add you contributed some - and I am not without sin myself, though I have kept it to a minimum.)

     

    While you may be only one, of the handful that would prefer to be a curmudgeonly; most people get more results, and retain more information, from a venue that has a human touch.

     

    We are not robots. Your attitude fits perfectly with that Book/movie (1984?) by Orwell.

     

    When you go to the Doctor, do you want one who greets you warmly ask what the matter and listens? Or do you prefer one that says, "what are you here for?" (acting as though he is getting indegestion just looking at you), check your pulse and BP; write a prescription and throws you out the door? I prefer the first. And if I got the second I would be looking for another ASAP

     

    Thank you.

     

    BTW: if that's the way you feel, why are you on this forum?

    Try the report abuse button. That will allow one of the mods that is not

    experiencing login issues to act. It is a good idea to use that anyway

    as more people are looking at that allowing for a faster response and

    mods can get a second opinion.

    I think someone needs to understand what a personal attack is. Musing about something is hardly making it an "attack", but if you really must know -- I'm not the one whom started making things "personal". That was Ramon's doing entirely.


    You know Ansury; you came into this Forum quite late and you don't even know half the background of why some people react why they do to Ramon. I was attempting to explain, especially to someone similiar to you (whom are quite relatively fresh to these new forums) that you don't know the entire history; Therefore you really should butt out when you don't know. There are always 2 sides.

     

    That's all from me on the subject.

    Well Philip, definitely not for the social aspect that's for sure. I've been here helping out, time permitting for a long time.


    Of course being self-employed means that I often burn the candle at both ends, and am guilty of posting answers at times, when I'm too tired and don't do the answers or the original posters justice. But hey I'm not perfect.


    I'm here to offer help to people needing it on Adobe Products, assuming that I can help.


    Often when doing so, I learn something from the likes of Zeno, Buko, John J. et al whom are masters at Photoshop. Same with some of the Premier/After Effects folks. Those are areas that I'm a beginner to low intermediate in, so  I'm always learning something.


    What about you ?

    (I don't mean lock the thread, I mean delete the attack and replace with the usual [Personal attack removed, please read the forum rules] text.)

    I edited the post you refererence to remove the personal attack.

     

    Folks; it doesnt matter "who started it", you only have control over one person; You.  Its possible to express differing opinions without attacking people.

    The abuse report system is in use.  All Hosts get notified of abuse reports so they can be handled as fast as possible.   But very few Hosts come to this forum anymore.  So in this case an abuse report will generally get faster attention.

     

    However; I already addressed your request as posted earlier.

    I'm not here for social aspect either. I'm here to help with what I can. But I don't mind a little occasional human interaction, either.  As the old saying goes, "all work and no play makes, billy a dull boy". And that that if ite all work and no human interaction, then become dull mentally your not as up on your game, like you should be. You don't exercise your mind enough, aand if you don't do that then you not as sharp mentally as you should be.

    Phillip that must be why your mind is so sharp then. Sorry couldn't resist.

     


    I prefer to get  my human interaction in the real world with people face 2 face. I'm not that keen on socializing in the virtual world unless I know the people in person. Back in the day I ran a BBS and met many of the members in person @ various social events. Here we don't have that. <shrug> I'm a pragmatic person my friend.

    Hi there

     

    Adobe has that. It's called MAX.

     

    Then again, it does cost more than I'm willing to spend just to get in, let alone travel accommodations!

     

    Cheers... Rick

    Curt there wasn't any personal attack -- Care to explain what it was ? I didn't call anyone a name, use profanity or say anything untrue. I was speculating. What are you -- The thought police now ? Get a grip and don't let people convince you of something like it appears just happened. I thought you were your own man.


    I speak to people  here the same way I am with people face 2 face, which is why I have respect among my friends and business acquaintances. Also the psycho babble isn't really needed as it's  rather condescending, which is just as bad as a personal attack. I hope you realize that.

    You made negative comments about a specific person, by name; then made a prediction of his actions based on a negative character trait; justifying it because "he started it".   Many would consider this baiting an argument.  Even if your accusations are accurate, it does not make it ok.
