I can't believe this.

Am I advocating the use of unsave threads? And that in the context of a simple program made by OP?

And in the meantime, picking away two hard-earned cows?

I'm sorry folks, but this is ridiculous.

So, bartender or higher in charge: can you please close my account?

Goodbye.

Yes.

I am afraid the −cows were also well‑deserved.

I am sorry, but as well as using cows to recognise good posts we use dead cows for the opposite.

And I think this discussion would fit better in the Ranch Office forum, so I am moving these last two posts thither, unchanged.

The preceding two posts were split from this GUIs forum thread.

Just to be clear, the skulls/negative cows aren't for a "bad" post per se.

Posting something wrong is fine as long as it isn't on purpose. This is a discussion forum. We discuss things and get to the correct answer. I think the problem is that another poster (Rob) mentioned that you seemed to be misleading a beginning poster into thinking that Swing apps should be multi-threaded. A better response to that would have been either agreeing or disagreeing on whether they should be multi-threaded.

I don't know much Swing so I can't comment on who is correct. In the JSP forum, users often post code with scriptlets. And sometimes we answer with scriptlets to show why it isn't working. But when we do, we explain that they are bad practice. From my look at the Swing thread, I think the same is going on there.

Just like cows, skulls aren't permanent. Feel free to post a clarification in that thread.
