And the rest of us would not know that if you had not told us. I really do think that a thoughtful reply, such as this one that you have written to Henry Coulder, is more constructive than the two apple cores and two thumbs down that his post also got. Because this tells him -- and the rest of us -- something useful about what was wrong with it. Now, if his post had just been deleted, no need, because the rest of us would not see it; but given that it remains here, I for one find it helpful to see an explanation of how it was problematic. Sometimes, when I see a post with an apple core, I am perplexed trying to figure out the reason. Especially since I was not privy to any Purple Moosage communications with whomever wrote it.



I've gotten thumbs down and apple cores. They hurt, they really do. And the not knowing why is terribly demoralizing. I equate them with middle fingers from passing motorists. Somebody was upset but the details are never going to be known. Maybe I took a wrong turn and need to get off that road.
Getting deleted by Paul would be the equivalent of hitting the highway rumble-strip. A rude awakening to tell you that you've reached the edge of the roadway and that you need to be more cautious. It's certainly uncomfortable to experience but the fault is almost certainly one's own.

thumbs down and apple cores.  Yep they hurt.
Any chance you ventured into the cider press?

It's all in the name - a great place to chew up excess apples.

I did. It seemed like a good idea at the time and I thought it'd be okay but I got beat up and mugged. I'm lucky I got out with any apples at all.

I guess I should say thanks to you for your work. This place is pretty darned cool and I understand that you're pretty busy making it so. Great work!

Thanks.

Yeh, I try to stay out of there as much as I can.  But I'm an apple whore - I love my apples!

Even Paul has lost apples posting in the cider press.  When the owner (and dictator) of this site can lose apples... well...
