Sorry, we'll have to agree to disagree on that one. Multiple posting may be bad if it's all one topic and conversation. When following multiple conversational threads in a single forum, it is highly beneficial for the flow of conversation to keep those conversations separated via multiple posts. Yes, I do that on purpose - and you should too - when there are multiple conversational threads within a single forum. Apparently you missed that subtlety in your rush to find something to talk about and attack on other than the item at hand.Well, I got a little angry since he specifically ignored my earlier request to stop double-posting:Then again, I'd prefer if noone calls anyone anything apart from possibly their names. That includes God Ginrai too.
And then pointed out that he does this on purpose. That is jerk-like behaviour, IMHO, so I called him out on it.Also, in the future, could you please refrain from double posting? Any additions can easily be added to your most recent post with the Edit function.
Double- and triple-posting is not conducive to healthy forum conversations, because it wastes a lot of space on one person. This makes for more scrolling and more pages for other users, which is frustrating. Not to mention, it is also toxic against other topics because it pushes other topics down, making it less likely for the other topics to be noticed. Thirdly, double-posts mean more entries in the database. This increases the amount of rows in the DB tables and thus hurts functionality and wastes space. Sure, we don't notice anything from one double-post, but they add up, eventually to a lot of wasted space and possible performance hits due to the number of rows in the tables. The only acceptable time to double post is when you are trying to bump a topic back onto page 1.
It is not hard to address multiple conversations in one post, and if you feel you need to somehow separate them, BBCode offers many ways to format your post in such a way as to separate your different discussions.
Also, it says it is post 321 for me as well. Maybe the mods are seeing deleted posts?
@Exophase Do you really think that quad-core ARM Cortex A9 may be the best SoC EvilDragon may be able to get?
