Re: [Evolution] Executing evolution logs the user out

Hi :) 
Why would any new person know what you did yday or last week, let alone for the last 4 years? 

That it wasn't you scolding the new person last time is not the point.  Each thread is made hostile.  There is a reason why some communities are growing and increasingly attracting more and more devs.  Others, like this one, are toxic and discourage people from wanting to join in. 

Why should i accept your rants?  It's rude and unnecessary.  I do have a sense of humour but it only includes things that are funny.  Your post wasn't funny. 

Regards from
Tom :)

Do you have evidence for that (in comparison with other MUAs)?

Not by me.

So the people being asked for help are supposed to go to the trouble of
finding out which version the poster *might* be using? Seriously?

I have asked politely for several years. It seems to make no difference.
I don't expect this occasion to make any difference either. I confess to
letting off some steam, which I tried to indicate by the <rant> block.
Presumably some people's sense of irony needs adjusting.

Which guys are you referring to? You seem to be under the
misapprehension that those of us who try to answer questions here are
all developers. Let me assure that the great majority of us aren't.
We're mere users like you. Sometimes we answer questions and sometimes
we ask them. It's called a user community, and asking questions properly
is a great help to getting them answered.
