    I'm hoping he was sarcastic.

    More great threads from the PHP forum!

    1) This guy is simply Doing It Wrong™, but steadfastly refuses to provide any other information.

    2) This guy is the contractor that everyone hates, hired to perform a specific task and has decided to do nothing but that. General advice on web development is given, and responded to with hostility. I admit he got under my skin and I turned into sarcasto-man, but he comes back with MORE! Highlight of the thread is the Disagree he gets from Fubes.

    You can't slap the stupid out of someone, but it can still feel good to try.

    No one thought to tell him about learning a CMS, and then learning how to train to use a CMS ...

    I'da thought that would've been good advice, and it would have gotten him to open his mind, and focus instead of waffling for four or five days, you're nearly worse for responding ;-)

    and it would have gotten him to open his mind
    His mind is already OPEN. You don't see, man, because you're not as synergized or as right-brained as he is!

    Honestly, I spent the first day trying to figure out what the hell he was talking about. It wasn't until near the end that I realized his question was "I have a thought, tell me what that thought reminds you of."

    Eventually, we did tell him to learn about CMS, modular application development, and programming in general. He flat out refused, even going so far as to stating that he wanted to program something without using any existing design paradigms, he didn't care about the users' experience, and he eventually resorts to typing the same phrase in bold over and over again. The best part? He's like this all the time

    Minds are like beer bottles. Some are harder to open than others. That's why I switched to scotch and mostly leave it to the barmaid.

    o.f.f.t.o.p.i.c.


    Minds are like beer bottles. Some are harder to open than others.
    I have a friend who opens beer bottles with his teeth. Years ago he was approached by some young men in the lower Haight about a possible exchange to which he replied, unwisely, by rapping some Public Enemy lyrics. So he had his jaw wired shut for a month or so. Once it was all healed he was back to opening bottles with his teeth.

    I can't afford to drink at the bar very often anymore. I'm thinking perhaps a good quality bottle opener might be a good investment, kinda like that safety razor I recently bought should pay off after a few years.

    @Dan, that's painful stuff right there, I was going to respond to at least 2 threads, and then realised, I'd be in the same boat as you ... let him off to be what he can be, so long as he don't bother me anymore ...

    • ManiacDan agrees : I had replied typed out to most of his threads...but it's not worth it.
