Thankyou Heather.
I use the List to learn and explore new concepts using LiveCode. I find myself spending a lot time these days deleting many post that are meaningless because of these needless Rants.
I use or try to use LiveCode because it is so versatile and exciting.
I'd like to spend my time exploring and learning and not deleting useless post.

Dear List Folks,

This list is intended for users to help each other in the use of LiveCode. Sometimes LC staff get involved and help out here also. It can be a great place to constructively discuss improvements. It is not a place to take potshots at each other, at LiveCode or at LiveCode staff. In the future, if a list member is perceived to be doing this by myself or by a reasonable set of other list members, they will be banned. 

For the avoidance of doubt, by taking potshots I mean:

Accusations of untruths, lying or lack of integrity Persistently pointing out flaws in LiveCode without any positive suggestions on resolution Namecalling of any kind General rudeness - please re-read your post before sending and check it for tone

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. What everyone is not entitled to do is express unfounded negative opinions about LiveCode and its staff on this list, which is run by LiveCode, for LiveCode, and for the benefit of LiveCode's users.

I trust I make myself clear. This warning will not be repeated. 

Warmest Regards,


Heather Laine
