Just a rant about the chat room but I'm gonna bring up a specific incident and actions by a moderator today that I feel need to be addressed. This is an example of how not to treat people and, "you should have a thick skin is not always the appropriate response even for minor things. Here is a transcript of the chat.
williambecker> Debug1 practical if you can use 2 drives. The SSD for the OS to take advantage of the faster bootup and the spinning drive for data and application storgage
<Dan> williambecker that's silly and about 3 years out of date advise
<Specie8470> How are you Dan?
<Debug1> williambecker: yes ... I even had a laptop that had two drive bays ...
<williambecker> Dan just speculating, don't have alot of experience in these matters. Open to learn more
<Dan> williambecker you should probably not give opinions if you dont have experience, just saying.
<ONEof2> williambecker thats what i did, it is good adviice. do not let the mods bully you
* Dan has kicked ONEof2 from #twitlive
I was having a discussion in the chat room with Debug1. No advice was being given to anyone. Instead of blurting out an "oh I'm so smarter then you criticism" he could have suggested a better more updated way to do this. Then to kick ONEof2 out of the chat room for sticking up for me, not violating the rules at all, uncalled for. I'm not trying to say Dan is a bad person. But I know this incident is not the first of this type. I may not have the tech knowledge Dan has but this gives him no right to talk to anyone like this. And for me not to address it at all would be wrong. Did not say anything else in the chat room again today and don't think I will go in there again. Note that I edited out the parts of the chat that did not apply to the conversation. If anyone wants to see the whole transcript I can provide it. Thanks for listening. Not trying to make this an out and out bashing expressing my discontent with a specific incident.
