Perhaps this thread should be split, so not to ‘dirty up’ the original thread…
Please note that I understand the position of Taxcycle, in that it wants the forum to be a friendly place, oozing with goodwill, as one of the sales tools of excellent software you produce.
However, that can only go so far.
One of the reasons for my ‘offending’ post is that I am trying to keep the forum a friendly place, and also a safe place for practitioners to get their questions answered.
The problem you are starting to experience on the forum is what also lead to the demise of the old Greenpoint software forum, which is, that people start posting all sorts of questions which, to even be a practitioner, they should have the answer to, or be ashamed to even ask. The asking of these questions are going to, and are now receiving responses by seasoned practitioners, who are tired of the constant barrage of that certain class of posters. And it is fine if they occasionally have a ‘dumb’ question, we all have off ‘duh’ moments.
NOTABENE it is in my best interest, as well as yours, that the Forum remains a nice place to ‘hang out’. I am doing what I can to keep it so.
Please be assured Elizabeth, that I am on the site of Taxcycle. And because of that, I will tell you frankly when are doing something well, and will also tell you frankly when you can improve…
Please note that however, there should be a strict rule against ‘ad hominem’ comments. Any such comments, no matter how slight, should be forthwith censured. I hesitate to be moderating on where I am being criticized, otherwise I would have already done so. Instead, I have limited my action here to self-defense.
