IMO, if you want job security then go for J2EE, everybody is working in that and if you want high packages and limited job option is not a problem for you then go for J2ME.

Please refrain from using the word "Urgent" in your messages, or repeating your request as explained here. You also emailed me personally which is another no-no since we encourage discussion in the forum and not through personal messages or email, as explained here.

Your questions or no more important than anyone else's so please be respectful of other people using the forum. If they are not answering your questions, don't continue to press them.

I think mark was right. When there is a rule, it is better to abide by it.

Rude!!
Dude Mark used the word 'please' in every sentence...I do not see how it is rude.
Now, sending a PM to someone without a valid reason, that is rude.

That was a very rude reply. People look upto Java ranch Forums as "enthusiasm boosters". When people do not reply for a thread, it probably means that the person who started the thread has not framed his question in such a way as to understand the importance of answering it. So when people ask again, the visitors understand the importance of replying to the question and reply. It has happened so in this case Hasn't it ?

Also if the rules are not to PM the sheriff's/bartender guys, then send back a PM to him. It is rude to tell tat he PM'ed you and not to do it again in a public forum.

Thanks.



I do not believe it was rude.

People come to this thread to get help with problems. it's 100% volunteer site--neither the moderators nor other community members are obligated to answer any questions, but thanks to Paul Wheaton we have created an environment where people help each other out. Still, as you can see from replies, not every question is answered equally and some aren't answered at all.

The Big Moose Saloon was not deisgned to be an "ethusiam booster" but rather a place where people can get answers to their questions. Every question is important to the asker, and Amit's question is no more important tha anyone elses. When he repeats his question, he pushes it back to the top of the forum pushing down someone else's question which was up top; that's unfair as his question was already on top. He's artifically promoting his question.

There is nothing rude Pming someone. However, you'll find in the guidelines I referenced that PMs should not be used for questions that belong in the forums. Moderators and others are happy to help answer questions in forums because we help the community. We don't like answer questions in personal emails because that doesn't help the community.

Normally I do not mention that in the forum, I simply reply back telling person to post the question in the forum. However, together both actions show a pattern of behavior we discourage and so I noted both of them as I'm trying to discourage the family of behaviors.

I don't wish to hijack this thread further. If you wish to continue this discussion, please continue it in the JavaRanch forum.
