Even Aurel figured out how to behave on a peer forum.
I really don't get it why anyone here should be upset if any new member asking questions.
if you don't want to answer or you don't know the answer - just ignore question and that is... ;D

If he annoys you, you can add him to your ignore list.

Thanxx everyone for your support, please don't get offended if i ask some questions. 

these might be simple questions to you, but they can be difficult for me.

i don't mean any harm to anyone. i'm just learning the ropes to become a programmer,
surely there must be some room for me to get above the water level and that you don't want to
see another human drown.

Can you combine your questions into a single post and stop flooding the forum with questions you are unwilling to research? You are causing members to lose interest O2 due to your child like babbling nonsense.

Sucking up to Charles for support will only buy a headstone.

As with many other members, Chris has asked a number of questions, which have proven to be very helpful to me, in refining various aspects of O2. It is definitely a two-way street. That is why I would like him to continue his contributary enquiries in this forum.

Bring  Chrisc back and I'm gone alone with the resources I provide in support of the OxygenBasic project.

You are welcome to have Chris e-mail his support questions to you directly.

Your support is much appreciated, John. But this forum needs to operate freely. We try not to impose constraints and then everybody gets to have their say. May I suggest a few hours cooling off period?

If I were Charles, I would tell you where you can go with your resources.

Let's see how long you can tolerate Chris's e-mails first before making any further comments on this case.

Chris violated the adult member registration requirements. His threats take it over the top.

John,

Did he insult you personally in an e-mail or PM or what, apart from that ridiculous red alert in his comment?

Oh, I see.

Just for everybody's information: please see below how it is usually done on VB's open forums. This helps keep them clear of childish babble and attempts to have somebody write someone else's computer science homework.

Please also read this before commenting in this thread any further: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way, at least its Before You Ask section.

Recent questions from Chris triggered at least three important investigations, for me, leading to improved repeater macros, time utilities, and window termination procedures. So an apparently simple enquiry, if properly dealt with, can often yield benefits for all. It's not just about doing someone else's homework for them.

Incidentally, the 'red comment', Chris tells me, was not seriously intended. It was only a retort to the 'headstone' comment, given in the same vein.

Do you want to teach school rather than work with BASIC developers? I'm not interested in that type of forum.

If Chris were mature enough, he would have comprehended the intent and analogy behind my comment. The scared little boy took it as a threat.
