Forum Bullies and Sneaky Sneaks

On another forum. This guy warns me to not bump a thread.

http://www.dropshots.com/spectateswamp#date/2010-01-14/06:06:14

Then he makes his post disappear. Then I get banned. A couple other of my fav threads had him as the final respondant. Does he bully others there. Good thing I do screen captures of my posts otherwise there would be no proof. I think he is employed by MS so he was probably put up to it..

anyway I'm looking for a simple upload program that will take 2 lines of info and update mp3 metadata. Line 1 will have all the "genre=" "artist=" "year=" "track=" info as you would like and line 2 would have the path to the music. c:\search\songs\me_singing.mp3

I'd like to completely change all my mp3 metadata at the drop of a hat. And change it right back if I like. Having 3 or 4 different MD sets for my music.

Maybe it was my views on MetaData that got me banned???

Well not being a member of that site I can only give you the views of other sites...

1) It is considered impolite to bump your own threads prior to a day or two having elapsed.

Reason: In general, with forums, when you ask a question, a person will either know the answer, know where the answer might be found, or is clueless. Now, when someone replies to your question to what the other knowledgeable people consider to be the correct answer, more than likely they will leave the thread alone. However, if your question is convoluted with a bunch of vague questions, i.e. help, codeless, or just unreadable/understandable most will pass it by and maybe even be miffed at you having wasted their time/bandwidth. Then there are those sites that nearly demand that you show the code you are having problems with.


2) It is downright rude to resurrect dead threads to ask your own question.

Reason: Most of these sites offer e-mail notification not only for the OP (Original Poster), but for all others that have replied to the thread. Thus, resurrecting a thread, sends an email to the OP and all those who have replied or opted to "subscribe" to the thread.

3) Hijacking someone else’s thread to ask your own question, whether on topic or not is down right rude.

Reason: Do I really need to answer this one???

4) Asking or re-asking the same question from a previous thread you have started is very rude.

Reason: You have asked the question once. Be patient, not every member of the site has seen it yet and then there are the hidden costs of doing this. This not only splits up where the potential answer is, it adds to the taxation upon the system because you are adding unnecessary records and when people search the site looking for the same answer, there are now two threads and more than likely, only one holds the answer.

5) Asking a common question. Like how to write out a text file and then read it in can be frustrating to those willing to answer questions.

Reason: Did you search the sites threads or if they have one, the fact section, and some sites have a codebank section. Did you search the web with your friends (yahoo, google, ask, answers, bing)? A lot of questions have been answered before and more than likely, if you have wondered how to do it, so has someone else. So show a little initiative and see if you can find the answer yourself.


6) Be sure you are posting in the correct forum.

Reason: Just because you have something that says Visual Basic that was released in 2008 does not mean you have Visual Basic 6.0 (yes my pet peeve to see .net questions asked in a classic vb6.0 forum).

Also, while not very interesting to read, most sites have a posting policy pinned to the top of their thread display. One should always at least peruse it just to be sure and some sites have facts that tell you how to search and how to post to get the best, fastest, answer to your question.

Now, this site even has a thread pinned at the top where I give a listing of sites and forums that have free code for not only the beginner, but the advanced.

Okay, now to answer your question....


It is time to use your friends (yahoo, google, ask, answers, bing) because this question has been asked before and I know that there are several solutions out there ready for your perusal. But if you really want to get down and dirty, see http://www.wotsit.org. Also, see PSC (http://www.planetsourcecode.com) if you cannot find your answer with your friends.

Good Luck

1) It is considered impolite to bump your own threads prior to a day or two having elapsed.

It wasn't my old thread that got resurrected. But it is a topic I am an expert in. MetaData. Who gets to make the call when a discussion is closed forever. Some topics topics should always remain open. MetaData is one Desktop Search is another.

3) Hijacking someone else’s thread to ask your own question, whether on topic or not is down right rude.

So start another thread with the same title. Or never bring up the topic again because it has been "fully covered" what crap.

So you seem to have no problem with someone pretending to be a mod (working for microsoft) shooing people away and baiting them only to remove the offending post. You think that's OK I guess. I got banned and that skinny ### cheat is still there. Merrily going about his evil ways. I guess that speaks loudly for that Channel9 forum.

On the following thread I'm defending my position on MetaData In case anyone is interested.

http://forums.thedailywtf.com/forums/p/13917/212738.aspx#212738
They haven't banned me and I'm being awful nice since the Channel9 putdown.

And a good uploader to go with the EXTRACT app, for those dumb asses that just must have MD info in their .mp3 files.

Well, from your language here, I can see why you might have been banned. Please remember that these are public forums and as such your language could offend. You should also remember that because some of these higher level languages are so easy to learn, like classic vb and vba, that these forums are not only populated by college age, but also high school and even middle school children. In fact, I'm surprised this site's filter did not catch some of your language and replace those letters with asterisks or some other character.

Also sir, from your reaction to my post, I'm thinking, and I don't know you from adam, but I'm thinking that you are easily baited and that might be part of your problem. It's a wonderful thing these forums. They allow us to type in what we are feeling and then stop before we hit that submit button, so that we can go back with calmer heads and rewrite what we want to say in a much more/less eloquent way. And sir, not knowing you from adam, I would suggest that you learn/start to practice some restraint in your posts.

Good Luck with your defense on your position and good luck on your search...

There is no doubt that I have done some baiting too. It is the quickest way to get responses. I realize my search isn't perfect, but wanted to know all the rediculous arguments that could be made against it. And there are many. In the process it has become apparent that metadata is a key battleground of data ownership. Is it your data or the MusicFolksData. Until your rip it from their icy grip like I do with the MP3 info extract, it is the MFP's data. Not yours or mine.

P.S. I still would like someone to do a .mp3 EXTRACT that would work well with my SSDS Spectate Swamp Desktop Search. And a mp3 LOADER that would take that info and put it back into the target MP3's. It would be super if people could do their own metadata. And not depend on the Music Folks.

All SSDS needs it a "photo " on the first text line with the MD in a format that the loader can use eg "Artist=" "gendre=' ... And the second line of the pair have "xxx." and the path to the target song. Ie "xxx.c:\search\mymusic\me_singing.mp3" People might want to have 2 or 3 different sets of personal MP3 metadata for their songs. I'm sure that won't sit well with the MFD's of the world.

Well I can't speak for you guys and this site but I can only tell you from my personal experience from other sites.


I'm a troll, I take my words so seriously and I think my posts are more important and intelligent than everyone elses. I make them long, number my points, and act as if they are golden rules. What I am talking about is not even correct half of the time. I have no patience, and serious psychological problems. I think that everyone should act just as I act, and I think that anyone acting differently should have to hear what I have to say regardless if I am incorrect or not.

I like to make people feel inferior becuase I have serious self confidence issues, impotence, and deep rooted frustration which stems from childhood. I have spent countless hours upon hours each day manipulating others and responding to posts on all of the 60 forums and random internet sites that I belong to. On average I would say I make about 60 posts per day. I think its cool that the internet allows me the vehicle that I can use to influence society with my psychopathic behavior becuase it seems much harder in real life. I am so incredibly brainwashed and the fact that I keep on typing this messege is evidence of how much stupidity exists inside of me. Did you do any research? Did you see any of the posts that I made on what I think is normal behavior. Becuase I like to make abnormal behavior normal becuase I grew up in an abnormal household and that makes me feel better.

I sit back and enjoy the fact that the millions and millions of people that I have manipulated come to my aid whenever I need them and sometimes without even me asking. I think I am so smart and powerful that my little world of psycopathy that I have developed and helped grow right here from the crazy little internet has become such a big deal and so powerful. I feel like a superpowerful sex villian that gets off on peoples misery and anguish. The fact that my little goons have come so far to come to my aid makes me just want to cum sometimes, but not actually right now. I like the internet, I think I'll stay for a while and continue to create my kingdom of psychopathy.

Here are some more rules that I have noticed just from going on the internet to other places.


1. Make sure you start sleeping naked if you aren't doing so already

Reason- Its considered impolite to sleep with your clothes on and many people dont have clothes so be gracious for what you've got. YOu don't need them on when you are sleeping anyways, so take them off.

2. Its downright rude to respond to any of my posts at all, so just don't do it.

Reason- me being the keeper and the ruler of all of the internet norms, if you attack me or even if I think you are attacking or disagreeing with me is going to result in an incredible backlash from me and my psychopathic behavior. I cannot accept that others are going to try to take my kingdom down that I have worked so hard for. I take my words svery seroiusly that if anyone disagrees with me my ego will be sore for a couple of days and I cannot have an orgasm until I have erectified this problem


3. I don't care if there is 6000 posts in that forum and the search engine sucks crap, most search engines are good. And if the question has been answered even once before with nothing but a lack lustered and unhelpful answer, you better go look at that post and wait, becuase otherwise you will be breaking such an important code of conduct on the internet that I cannot even tell you about right now. But its downright rude to ask a question again if even ONE person has asked it before, or if you can find it somewhere else on the internet.

4. If the internet goes down my kingdom goes down, therefore we've got to save as much space as possible on the internet , so i would like everyone to limit their posting and continue to do as much research as possible before making a post unless it is me, or one of my goonies. But if you are a new comer, you've got to earn your respect before you can post on these forums or any other forums becuase I just can't tolerate my kingdom collapsing or even slowing down because of the extra kilobytes of space that it will be taking up by making another post.


5. If I feel like bullying people around then I would reccomend that you watch out becuase I will take note of your language, your behaviour, your spelling, your grammar, and anything else that I can think of. I don't care what the forums were originally created for but if you can find that damn answer at least somewhere else on the internet then just plain and simply wtf are you asking the question for? Quit wasting the kilobytes and man up you people.

And as for the O.P.'s questions , that answer can be found somwhere on the internet, its time to quit using the forums all together, man up and search on google, yahoo, aol, bing or anything else like that they got out there, im sure you can find it =) . But if you can't find it there or anywhere else then I would keep searching. I know you can do it. Its time to go the local library or maybe invest some money in going to school or college for this kind of thing becuase if you can't find it on the internet its likely noeone wants to give you that information and for good reason. The reason being I don't want them to becuase we shouldn't share. If anyone else has anything to say please keep your comments to a minimum becuase we have to save kilobytes and my erection has to get bigger tonight.

good luck
