It'll be a relief [for me] not to have to communicate with an individual prone to such overt offence. I hope you too are relieved at the [hoped for] conclusion of this tedious episode [rhetorically speaking, of course]   If you ever mature then drop me a pm - there's always hope.
Goodbye [hopefully]
You know,  I've made 6300+ posts on this forum,  the majority of which were either helping people with their CHDK issues, helping to fix bugs, or working on new features for all to enjoy.   The rest were me getting help from others on this forum.

I have over 200 patches that have been accepted into the main build.

And I've made  2800+ edits of the wiki documentation for CHDK, creating a lot of documentation that would not exist otherwise.  Its a mostly anonymous and thankless task,  including getting the current user manual in to a usable shape.   (Note : props to reyalp, msl & philmoz for their ongoing acknowledgement and thanks)

But don't take my word for it - the forum and wiki are fully searchable.  Look for yourself.

Still,  every so often, a newbie joins this forum, intent on impressing everyone and on aggressively posting. When I respond back with questions or gentle suggestions about their posting style,  even after actually helping them with many of their early posts,  I  sometimes become accused of being the bad guy.  It seems to go with the territory.

So, my suggestion here is to look in the mirror.  Reread your previous posts and their agressive and insulting style and ask yourself what you might have done differently?  If you still can't see it,  I'm content with not helping you any further.

Knowledge and Experience don't infer Wisdom.

Everybody can make mistakes [I did by mis-interpreting  the nature of your, allegedly, 'tongue-in-check' statement]. You subsequently made a mistake by not [straightforwardly] accepting my attempt at reconciliation.

At the minute, your latest post does not change in any way what I said:

It'll be a relief [for me] not to have to communicate with an individual prone to such overt offence.

I have previously valued your help and if you had [straightforwardly] accepted my request for reconciliation, would have appreciated for that to continue.

This still stands:

If you ever mature then drop me a pm - there's always hope.

This is an obfuscation - bordering on further purposive offence :

Still,  every so often, a newbie joins this forum, intent on impressing everyone and on aggressively posting.

Please stick to what you're [very] good at - helping people with their camera problems.

P.S: I really don't want to go into any further debate with you about this, but if you are intent on that then one more time I suggest:

Let bygones be bygones ?

I can live with that.

Perhaps we should ask reyalp to clean-up this off-topic conversation by removing our respective posts starting here :

I do not think that obliterating history is a good idea, it sets a dangerous precedent.
Myself and others could request similar actions for some of our posts.
It would be an abuse of a moderator's privilege.

If both parties make the request, its seems appropriate to honor that.   Especially as its quite possible for those parties to simply go back together and delete the content of those posts, leaving a messy trail similar to the old posts of Barney Fife.

Update :  I'd also be quite happy with relocating the posts to a separate thread with an appropriate title in the interest of cleaning up this one

You have to think carefully about this, it has wider implications.

Despite my 'sins' over the last seven years I much prefer the record to stand.
I am instinctively uncomfortable when history is erased.

In fact, I think it should be a rule that history is NEVER erased even if all parties request it.
If that is made clear in a Policy Statement people will be more careful in their posts.

What do others think ?

As I edited above - I'm fine with the content and I'm fine with not deleting stuff.  Off-topic posts are relocated to new threads all the time. As a courtesy to those reading this thread,  simply move this somewhere where it won't be off-topic and leave a forwarding link for cultural historians to some day follow.  It's not like we are trying to edit the Magna Carta or anything important here.

Or the NSA to follow today if they are not too busy spying on charities, the EU, the Israeli Prime Minister and others :-

Anyway, seems reasonable.

Well,  I must admit I was tempted to post something about Britain being fortunate that MI5/MI6 are not so inept that they get caught when the participate in the same sort spying.  It is after all a country with one of the highest rates of video surveillance in the world  : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk/6108496.stm
