I see now that it was me who started this endless flow of legacy posts, because I ordered Lincoln to do so, as can be seen here:

https://www.proz.com/forum/money_matters/819-are_we_officially_in_recession-page2.html#2891488

(please scroll a bit up, when the link opens)

You may please forgive him, that he doesn't realize that proz.com wasn't alive in those times (at least not online and I don't know when they started with their printed edition): That's why he keeps on searching, and searching, and searching ...
Lincoln, stop it! Now!


It was a different post. He didn't like the answer and started this silly necro-thing... can't remember exactly.

I think Lincoln needs psychiatric help.

If you're not interested in them yourself, just leave them. They're not bothering you.

Goodness me, is that a threat to inflict physical violence on a professional forum? That's one thing that I most certainly did not do. And such an about face too!

But then, of course, we all understand that it's not a problem if it's directed towards a yellow.

While the jury is still out Feb 18

Necroposting is annoying, but making attempts at assessing the psychological profile or needs of a colleague in a public forum is beyond the pale for me. Is it or is it not a personal attack? What does the netiquette has to say about that?

Stick to your specialties!

Do NOT play the racist card. We don't care what colour/nationality you are, your behaviour is extremely childish and that's what we don't like. You've been asked to stop plenty of times, yet here you go again, and again, and again ...

And learn what a metaphor is.

Is indeed a light metaphor not violence

What behavior? Feb 18

So we do agree that this totally unjustified, self-righteous crusade against necroposting is, indeed, gender-motivated?

We are all in agreement that necroposting is perfectly fine, and that the problem lies with the self-righteous, 'religious' people complaining about it. It's not in violation of any forum rules, the responses are perfectly on-topic, and the community has unambiguously put its stamp of approval on it. Why is it a problem now? Why the about-face?

And oh my, calling people names on a professional forum! I think someone once got very upset about it

In any case, I think we'll have to leave it to a court of law to decide what is a threat of violence and what is not. It's most certainly not up to the person who made the threat to decide.

Do tell Feb 18

No personal remarks - check
Replies on-topic - check
No promotion of illegal piracy - check
No stalking individual users across topics - check

I wonder if the problem is that all the rules are being followed.

Off-top Feb 19

It seems like nowadays every other forum should be moved to "How did COVID affect your mental state"...

I can't believe how out of proportion things get blown - any tiny match sets a major fire. What is it - isolation, boredom, end of one's wits, sunken market, no access to usual places like restaurants, concerts, parties, friends' and family members' houses ????

Remind me again, what was the reason for so much anger and so many personal attacks and lecturing?

Indeed - but remember, these rules only need to be enforced against certain people, and not others.
