Why Yes, I Bear a Grudge

It's only fair that I update this post to say that the moderator of this group was very kind to me when I was attacked on this forum. I'm very grateful to him for that.

I haven't posted here for a while - and now I'm going to be controversial - but a sharepoint guru who left abusive comments on my blog a year ago has now abandoned all pretence at treating anyone, males included, with a modicum of respect.

I have edited the rest of this post - because I admit I was deeply, intensely angry when I wrote it - and I have removed the link where they insult other peers in the business. If you google "sharepoint doesn't suck- you suck" you will find the rant. The link to the comment left on my post is in the first comment. Also the person is blocked. I'm not inclined to unblock them to suit their convenience, but I've nothing to hide.

I want to thank people who have left +1s. I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you have done that and that I am not a useless person. That commenter made me feel useless, that's why.

Because regrettably I've had this problem once since I joined here (I have blocked the person concerned so they should not be able to view my posts or comments) I think it's important for me to put this up. People getting the hang of developing the application, particularly female and entry-level male developers, deserve a supportive environment.

I'd like to thank the private notifications and kind comments from the community at the time I encountered this problem.

Poem of the day

Dirge in Woods
by George Meredith

A wind sways the pines,
         And below
Not a breath of wild air;
Still as the mosses that glow
On the flooring and over the lines
Of the roots here and there.
The pine-tree drops its dead;
They are quiet, as under the sea.
Overhead, overhead
Rushes life in a race,
As the clouds the clouds chase;
         And we go,
And we drop like the fruits of the tree,
         Even we,
         Even so.

Blog post - thoughtful advice appreciated on the below issue!

I just wanted to thank everyone who has dropped by my humble little blog to plus-one posts on it since I was invited here about a month ago. It means so much to know that a post was useful to you and I'm delighted that was the case. It makes me feel very vindicated and happy to see it.

I'm very interested in reading other people's blogs too. I'm not the kind of person who thinks of SharePoint when she goes home in the evening, frankly, but I do like sharing ideas to make all our lives easier, so please feel free to share.
