It is if you brush off a reasonable request for more information, with the
implication that the person asking is inexperienced and or naive in comparison
Regardless if a person is experienced, inexperienced, naive or whatever,
the person should be able at least to understand what the question was.
If a person never saw that problem, why to feel addressed with my
Sorry Rennie, this is the OS NG and not the cafe NG …
I wanted a related answer, nothing else.
btw: I don’t think Igors’ interpretation is strange, it is my interpretation
also; and I bet it is most peoples interpretation.
Whatever you and others interpret, it’s up to you amd the others.
My impression is that here are some participants in the NGs who identify
themselves with QNX and feel attacked personally if the reason for a
problem could be QNX…
I asked simply:
“are there any problems known with nested interrupts
at a high interrupt load? (QNX 6.2.0A, x86)”
OK, I’ll buy that this was your original intent. How about next time someone
asks a question that implies that they want to help you, and you don’t really
want any help; instead of brushing them off rudely, you simply explain that you
just wanted to know if there were any known problems with the O/S ?
What would be really cool is if you added something like “thanks anyway”.
Rennie, the answer on my question was really annoying:
“Not that we will find anything wrong with your code, but it may
help if you could you post the snippet of code that handles
interrupts in your resmgrs.”
As you like to interpret, just my interpretation to that answer:
- he was not able to read and understand the question
- examination of a snipped code can’t tell you if others saw the
- the answer implies that I didn’t check my code before asking, and
that I’ve no experience with simple handling of interrupts…
And now you expect that I say “thanks anyway”… you can’t expect that
everyone in these NGs has American behaviour, just because of the
language is English and QSSL is a Canadian company …
May be you feel that the answer on my question was polite, for me it
was impertinent… just my interpretation.
