@peter.s - With all due respect, I have no idea what point you're trying to make with your above comment.
However, I'd like to point out that DoCo is a voluntary
community. And these are open
discussions where posters and responders are free to post as they wish. This is not a free reference library or consulting service. It is a place to have a discussion
and express an opinion
or comment in whichever way seems best to the person doing the posting.
If you disagree with something someone has said, or the way it was said, please feel free to disagree. Your disagreement does not, however, impose any sort of obligation on anyone to respond - nor does it establish a requirement that posts only be made in a form most beneficial to your specific needs. If a product or resource is mentioned, it's generally expected that one does some research on their own
if a link isn't provided. A quick google search is usually all that's required, so it's seldom necessary to get into republishing lists of features or links in a post. If you're curious about something like VUE
or CMap Tools
, it's usually best to do a quick search, go take a look, see what you think, and then come back and ask more focused questions. Almost demanding a list of features or a mini-review on a product - when a visit to the developer's website could provide you with all that information - can come across as being a bit presumptuous to some of your fellows here.
and yes, I feel entitled to speak openly on this matter, with regards to MY communication style...
As do I. And my
communication style is to assume the person I'm posting or responding is at least as smart (or smarter) than I am, and would prefer I not
presume to spoon feed them information they're capable of looking up for themselves.
At the end of the day, it's a matter of style, and a matter of mutual respect...
And also a matter of lightening up a bit.
