how about we get an emocons engne that will work for PAM! (it is out) (good idea, yes or no?)
What is an "emoticon engine"?
cowthink 'Dude, why are you staring at me.'
Let's make an unofficial policy of ignoring posts like this. They are beginning to irk me.
It is not your audience's responsibility to puzzle out what you intended to say; it is your responsibility to express yourself so clearly that no one with a modicum of intelligence and good will could possibly mistake your meaning.
Why not make an official policy?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do or say will be exaggerated or mis-quoted and used against you.
Are we voting on ignoring the first poster for for his request?
Are we voting on ignoring the second poster for pretending he doesn't know what the first poster is talking about, I hate it when people do that (I assume he knows what the first poster is talking about as he was able to use the term emoticon and the OP did not (he said emocons).
So what are we voting on?
Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?
that we are talking about the thread starter. Not necessarily him perse. Just the whole topic of useless posts that request X without any information as to what it is or anything.
Besides... An emoticon engine for PAM... As in smiley generator? I beg the question of WHY at this time. If you want smiley's, get Smiley Xtra for FF and use those emoticons.
OK, lemme explain my idea. If it were implemented, all posts which (beyond reasonable doubt) seem to be spam, would be ignored. So,
Pr0tbl m$ vi$t4!!!!!!!!111 OMG ROFL!!!!!!!?!?!?!11
would be ignored by the community.
hi, pls wnat prtabl god emluator. thx
Hi, i from (country). excuse me english. this first post by me. have possibility to make portable Google Earth?
would be responded to with a welcome and a polite explanation of PortableApps.com policy (including searching before posting and what software is illegal).
To answer comments about responding to the original post here, yes, I suppose this discussion is getting a little off topic, and yes, it's a little self-contradictory to be doing so much discussing in a thread which might in future end up getting ignored by most (if not all). But good discussions sometimes don't fit too well into the 'forum thread' topic.
I think these posts should be ignored.

I must poke my head in and post, otherwise it's not legally off-topic
Anyway, just explain to the OP about this, as they may think these forums are just like all the others on the net: Filled with illiterate words, spam and idiots.
Also, if their English is bad, invite them to post in their own language, so native speakers can answer them. Make sure to do this especially with the German speakers and point them in the right direction. Anyway, in conclusion...Oops, got to go, Family Guy is on TV
So all that Airbus-delay trouble over here in Europe is because of YOU!

I think if we could provide these posters with an actual portable GOD emulator, they could then become omnipotent, and would be able to answer their own cryptic request by themselves.
So, John, could you please create a GOD emulator?
What, not done yet? We'll give you six more days.

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
We are voting on whether to officially ignore these types of threads or not.
I agree... not anything against sergentsiler, though.
discuss tis matter on a different thread! and an emocons engne is a prog that lets you put in emocons ( like \(oo)/ or :))by selecting the emocon you want and putting in the code in the place where you want it. there is a difference from and emocons engne emocons and manual emocons. generaly manual ones are just text, but an emocon engne can make it in color and animate it if wanted. (BTW, i agree that we should start making requests more formal instead of just saying what we want. cinda stupid considering i am usualy the one who does the stupid posts.) once again, discuss the posting issues matter on another thread!!!
I know that the informality of IM has made abbreviated words an and symbols standard fair, but when I read you posts they leave me trying to guess whether it is English or you fainted on the keyboard, woke up, and kept typing. Maybe it is just the lack of capitals, or maybe I am just cranky with a head cold.
Much love to ya.

i do tend to leave everything lowercase and not punctuate but your the first to complain. maybe your just cranky. (or i could be anoying.)
Another old guy
I think it's the latter.
are you callin' old! im 15!
Of course you are, and it shows in your proper usage of the English language. Another fine example of the public school system.
yup! school is great! also considering i am in the 2nd richest town in the first richest state! (IE. Madison Conneticut.)
Great... Another yuppie momma boy who's parents bought him anything he demanded... Grow up.
dont make me laugh! me gettine anything i demanded would have been a mirical. and in case you where to @#$%ing stupid to realize the EXTREME SARCASIM in my last post
the whole school is great thing was total sarcasim. i hate school. i dont learn all that much anyway. and FYI, i am not the one who needs to grow up here. (in your FACE!)
sergentsiler, we've all been very patient with some of your nonsensical posts and your posts that seem designed to start a fight or get a reaction out of other people. But this board is for talking about portable apps and related items. Not for rants about how you hate other websites or life or how people on this board p*ss you off. At this point, you're hurting the discussions on these forums far more than you're helping. Some of us here have work to do and are trying to busily do it and don't need someone trolling the forums purposely trying to create trouble. Please stay on topic and play nice.
UPDATE: And I just saw you attempting to 'call out' another user from the other site you were banned from. I'm updating this to your final warning as a result. Either play by the rules and show some maturity and respect for developers, moderators and other forum members or leave.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I was beggining to lose patience, and it's my last name too . Thanks.
I felt so different without a signature.

Yea, I guess. If I could... Cause I want it to be Patrick Patience anyways.
Lol, but then if I lost my patience, I'd just be Patrick, and I wouldn't even exist...
This is not approved content here and this is starting into a flame war. I will finish my involvement here by stating that you have displayed your maturity to everyone to interpret as they will. I bid you good day young one.
for a while. i do admit that my posts are annoying. now i will shut up!
