Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.


Ah, the crap continues. Yet again a completely legit post of mine got deleted on the SkyOS forums without any form of notice, warning, or whatsoever.

Nice way to treat a community. Keep working at it, SkyOS team.

why do you still bother?
And as I explained a few days ago, they want to keep their OS closed, it's their right to do so. Don't try to change their plans, it can't work and it shouldn't work. It's Robert's OS, just like AtheOS was Kurt's and OpenBSD's is Theo's.

This post didn't have anything to do with their directions or plans :).

I bother because when something gets deleted, I'd like to know why. It's not the deleting itself that matters, but more the fact that no one gives an explanation. I don't like that.

well, it's not always a good idea to give a "why". Yes, in your case, you should have received an email or IM message explaining what's up.
But on osnews, things get deleted or moderated down sometimes because they are deserved to, but wedon't have to give a "why". And when I give a "why", it makes it EVEN WORSE because then they reply in an even more furious way and they give a CONTINUATION to something that should have never been there in the first place.
So, no, if their engine does not support a "why" for a deletion, or if they don't have a way to contact you personally, then it's better to not elaborate.
Trust me on this, I speak from experience.
In your case, just IM hexydes.

Yes, your post was deleted.
If you sit down and think about the reason why a few of your posts got deleted, I'm pretty sure you would know why I deleted them. (and why a few post from other people got deleted too).

And this is the first and last time I reply to your "omg, my post was deleted" blogs.

Talk in a respectful way to other people (particularly to people new to SkyOS, people who don't have experiences or even patricks,...), don't post unfounded rumors, and stop complaining about things where we told you already that this things are not going to change.

The forum on skyos.org should be something like a refernce book for people new to SkyOS. Please try to respect this by using a nicer mode of expression.

If you still want to talk about this or didn't get my point, fell free to contact me with ICQ.

Depends on how you look at it. If on a community forum posts get deleted, then I'd like to know why, period. I tried explaining that, but apparantly you guys didn't get it.

It is rude to delete comments that might not be to your liking, but are still completely true. The beta activation period is simply TOO LONG and you guys *know* this, and have known this for ages and yet *nothing changes*. All I said was, when someone mentioned he still wasn't activated:

"O...k. New record, I guess."

I'm sorry if that didn't fit in, but it's still perfectly true. You better learn to accept criticizm. It is simply BAD to ask people money, and then let it take weeks for them to recieve any form of confirmation. The amount of people complaining about long waiting times and unclarity of the procedures is immense, and this is an issue that is known for a very, very long time now. My comment simply emphasized that in my usual method: direct and in-your-face.

"Talk in a respectful way to other people (particularly to people new to SkyOS, people who don't have experiences or even patricks,...)"

That's a very lame comment, mr. Szeleney. I have done a substantial amount of work to bring users to SkyOS, and I have done that very succesfully. My articles about SkyOS on OSNews.com have brought a serious amount of new users, so your comment above is simply very ungrateful.

Learn to deal with critisizm.

Not really. Your comments are unrespectful and unfriendly to SkyOS users, developers and the staff.

>> Learn to deal with critisizm.
You wanted to have a comment why your post was deleted, here it is. Learn to deal with it.

I will stop this "discussion" here, going back working on the really important things.

My comments hold truth, and that's the thing you can't stand, mr. Szeleney. Your toes are very, very, very long if you find that comment a personal attack.

SkyOS barely had any future in the first place, but your behaviour will only speed up the process. A lot of things have happened in the past 18 months that have taken away the last hundreths of a percent monentum that SkyOS had.

But then again, as Eugenia explained, it's your project, so if you wanna fcuk it up, then it's your call. Simply don't expect everyone to adore you simply because you are a great coder.
