@seriouspony tweeted today

Javaranch was, for nearly a decade, *the* most active/popular developer site. One TOS: "be nice". No question is dumb, & no RTFArchives

Someone added a comment about using a real name.

CodeRanch retweeted with a comment that we are still popular. At that we are now coderanch. (Hey, can't miss an opportunity to remind people that we aren't just Java.) What do you think of the quote. I particularly like the no RFTA part. Mainly because we are very aware of "be nice" and be welcome of all questions. I wasn't so aware of that we try not to tell people just to search. Bu tit's true. It is more welcome giving people a hint rather than just relying on the person being able to find it.

It also reminds me of the importance of knowing the right search terms. That little snippet opens the doors to so much more.
The government thinks you are too stupid to make your own lightbulb choices. But this tiny ad thinks you are smart:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
