So this is the style of this forum. Completely undocumented statements about the quality of my work and reliability of my informations, and then you ask me to complain if I like, but lock the thread so that I cannot do that or defend myself! Let us see if you have the courage to let this post pass or you are just a coward!

I may be a beginner in VB, but I am certainly not a beginner in programming and electronics. I only answer questions I know something about and this is for the moment basically limited to the serial port and related issues like delegates, and I have probably helped more people with workable solutions about this subject than you have.

I have written the informations on our homepage because the help files of VB are not very helpful to beginners and don't provide any below-the-hood informations. If anything I write on this page or in this forum is wrong please correct me, and if you have better suggestions than mine please come forward with them, but until now we haven't seen anything of this kind from you, so stop your constant defamations, which you or Microsoft actually may be sued for!

I think locking the thread was the right thing to do. When I read the last post, my immediate reaction was Enough! You were both reducing the opinion others would have of each of you.

The problem is that Stephen J Whiteley is not just somebody. He is one of the "big" guys and a Microsoft representative, so I just cannot ignore it when he writes that I am a fool, who do not know what I am talking about.

It is a long story, which started out when I asked a tricky below-the-hood question about the serial port - see http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1161448&SiteID=1 . SJW turned the question into a discussion about buffers and it ended up with a discussion about his polled solution versus my event driven one. He even marked his answers and the one from nobugz as being helpful even though this was not the case, but please take the time and read this thread and judge for yourselves.

Ever since that thread he uses any opportunity to call me a fool and an unreliable source - just see this thread: http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1244422&SiteID=1 . I was trying to help a very nice lady (alias Cheyenne) when he suddenly broke in and called me an unreliable fool. When I asked about his electronic background, which gave him the right to these defamations, he just locked the thread. Please read this thread also and again judge for yourselves and please also read the follow up thread from Cheyenne: http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1247090&SiteID=1 .

I am only searching the truth and trying to help people. I have been number 6 on the "Top Answerers in this forum" list just by answering questions about the serial port, so it must be a big problem for many. Therefore, I have put all my present knowledge on our homepage together with a small program for serial port communication, which I know has helped many people getting started. I have tried to write everything in a language, which even beginners should have a chance of understanding (unlike the help files). I do not guarantee that this information is 100% correct, but it is my best shot so far. I ask everybody (in bold lettes) to send any comments and corrections, but so far I have not received a single one. Instead the "big" guys call it advertising when I refer directly to this help file (not to the home page in general). If SJW wanted to be constructive he could take the time and read through this page and send me any corrections to the benefit of all people trying to use the SerialPort class. Just calling me a fool without any documentation leads nowhere.

If you or anybody else has more time please read this description also and correct me if anything is wrong or you have something to contribute or add. Any input is very welcome. The URL is: http://www.innovatic.dk/knowledg/SerialCOM/SerialCOM.htm .

Hi,

You shouldn't care about the "big guy's" as you put it, leave them to it.

Ask yourself "Do i care about the richest guy's on this planet "

I certainly don't, money isn't everything, while it must be nicer to be rich ( i've heard less than 1% of the world's population are rich ), while i may be a "little jealous", jealousy gets you nowhere. I won't drift off to a religious or "philosophical" discussion on that point either.

I see some of the world's "rich-list" celebrities etcetera on television and they aren't always happy, once you know why then you'll know how i feel about "status or your 'position' in life".

Anyway, okay i will take a look at those posts and the last url link.

However i would still be inclined to "switch off" to any defamation or "constructive ( or-other-kind ) of criticism(s)", that way you "get-on" better with others ( and it annoys those you don't reply to as they may wonder "well i wonder what you are thinking".)

Personally i don't give a XXXX if someone criticises me in this microsoft forum or on any other forum-website to which i'm a member. ( I'll leave them too it ---- if it makes them feel better, who cares )

Regards,

S_DS






Re: Visual Basic Express Edition To Stephen J Whiteley and Microsoft

My opinion would be to stick to the point in question.

If you believe you original post to the question was a good solution and you can justify why your answer was sufficient then by all means question why the other person believes this not to be the case.

I think the objective here is to give good solid advice, as regard the serial port questions - I think the documentation is weak and the there are limited good examples of the functionality. I have no hesitation in passing people on to discuss issue with you as its obviously something that you have spent some time looking at. With this point I would definately start passing comments back to MS on this weakness as well as adding MSDN wiki entries on it to help others.

There are no "big guys", moderators are chosen for there knowledge of the product, they are often MS employees, MVP's and power users. Your comments are just as valid as theres - please dont get into a flaming war as in the end no one wins.
