Dear Sheriffs:
If your guys can ban this "J Loser C" from Meaningless drive, then I will never come here again.
Thanks,

Heya Don - what's up? Why are you so angry? Share, just talk a bit, what's on your mind?

As soon as "J Loser C" will ask us to ban other MD participants, we'll ban... somebody.

I am not angry. I simply feel somebody should not be here. What is this? A AOL chat room? This is javaranch, for java people. Why somebody only posts in meaningless drive? I doubt he know anything about java. :roll:

So - exactly WHAT is wrong with "J Loser C" or whoever? If you don't like some posts - ignore them.
We have an assortment of unusual personalities here - and some of them serve to remind us of how lucky we are to be CAPABLE of doing java and holding down steady jobs or school careers. That is a valid function and it keeps us from getting TOO impressed with ourselves and thinking that perhaps Meaningless Drivel is BETTER than an AOL chat room :roll: . I mean - look at the NAME for heavens sake. Some people just do meaningless better than you.
Frankly YOU caused more noise here today than anyone has in a LONG time - so who are you to complain.

It is very possible that people use an alias in MD and post regularly in the other forums using a different name. Only the admins would know if this was true. Besides, it's Paul's playhouse and he can let anyone in that he wants.

Maybe because some of the topics posted in MD are more interesting than the 1000th post asking how to install Tomcat, for example? I do occasionally post to and read the other forums, but I gotta tell you, I would rarely call many of the Java related topics "interesting", but that's just me. To me MD is more of a place to unwind and discuss things with like-minded people. I mean hell, I stare at Java all day, but it's not my life.
Posting mainly in MD doesn't imply you know little about Java, any more than tacking a bunch of acronyms on to the end of your sig means you are a software professional.
