Re: [Solved] Virtualbox Sudden Kernel mismatch issues.

Postby zimbodel » 18. Apr 2019, 20:52

Socratis,

Please just adopt a less abrasive demeanor.
It is not helpful.
People are trying to solve their problems and not interested in fights all the time.
Neither am I.
Maybe you are overly sensitive person, as in my case you read into things that doesnt even exist.
Just cool down.
People are not as bad as it is made out to be.

Lets move on.

I'm only responding to one, and I will continue to do so as a moderator, it's part of my role to bring back people in order.

Come with a nice attitude and you'll be met with smiles and a helpful attitude.

Come here swinging, taking a personal hit at me, at my country in general, oh yes... you're going to hear about it. After you've already gotten a warning and a 1-week ban? You're asking for it, seriously now!

And not just me, if you come up with personal attacks to anyone. See "The Forum Posting Guide" » "This is a community service":
Whilst we accept that some robust debate may be appropriate, we will not accept unnecessarily aggressive or rude behaviour. So please, no matter what your personal frustration, try to keep your comments constructive. If you cross this line then the moderators will delete your posts.

I just recently made the "The Forum Posting Guide" a Global post, it appears as a top-most thread on each and every area of the forums. I hope that people don't have to read it, they should already know what a polite behavior is. Unfortunately, sometimes they need to be reminded...

I'm going to move the non-related posts to the "Feedback & comment to the Administrators and Moderators", no need to be here.

Posts from "Bezla" and "socratis" were split from the thread "Copy/Paste from Win7 guest to OSX host"

Be professional a little bit, are you talking to your son? Do you know who is on the other end?

I ll make sure your reply will be sent to appropriate place. Can't believe Oracle would allow you to be admin here.

Can you please point to me where was the "unprofessional" attitude in my reply? The highlighting, the underlying, the bolding, or the hard facts being pointed at you? Or all of the above?

If I'm giving you really specific instructions, and you choose to blatantly ignore them, forcing me to lose more of my time that I normally wouldn't? And I could be helping other users that actually do follow instructions?

I'm a volunteer here not your dedicated tech support and if you make my life difficult, because you don't wan't to follow a specific procedure, I'm going to try and set you straight for the next time and/or others that read your post. I tell you to do things? You do things. To the "t". I will not be blamed for pointing to your inability to understand a step-by-step procedure!

I'm starting to understand who's on the other end; someone that doesn't understand basic instructions, and when they're told about it, they're offended. Not at all like if you were "my son", he would definitely know better!

Are you seriously threatening me now? Just for that threat alone, you would normally get a cooling-off ban period of 2 weeks! You do not threaten other members! Period! But if I ban you, you'll think it's a vendetta, so I can't/won't, ethics doesn't allow it. But, attempt to attack any other member here, and you won't be able to flinch before you get banned for life.

BTW, I'm not an admin, I'm a moderator, a person that's supposed to keep things from derailing, a person that's supposed to tell users how to properly receive help.

And as for my (and your) reply being in the "appropriate place", I'm splitting your reply and mine, and moving them in the Suggestions » Feedback & comment to the Administrators and Moderators.

Woo - I don't think that was necessary. How about just collecting and posting the logs in the format as first asked for by @Socratis

Why so unhelpful

Postby fredblogs » 31. May 2019, 09:33

I tried to start mine on windows 10. Got Failed to load API DLL: WinHvPlatform.dll. Tried looking it up. Found a discussion. The discussion didnt have any useful input from Oracle just a host of moaning from people at oracle telling people they hadnt raised the issue correctly or were piggy backing and so on.
I dont CARE whether you liked the way the question was asked or even if you thought it could possibly at a stretch by a different problem (unlikely given the same description) so why not put an answer??????

Then the level of stupidity to get here is unbelievable. I do NOT need your lousy cookies on my machine. You do NOT need my phone number, my address, my company, my inside leg measurement, my eye colour etc etc etc You might have use for an email IF and only IF I want a notification when a post of mine is replied to and that should be optional.... after all I can always come back and look. The more of my information you have the more you can lose when (not if) you are hacked.

The first thing to remember in information security... if you do not have the information you cant damned well lose it!

Yeah, completely agreeing. This forum marks beta-versions as non-supported, didn't help with Citrix Multiuser 2.0 (needed to go to dedicated OS/2 forum). Go to hell, I'm exiting this forum and going to dedicated forum for each system.

@fredblogs, @vlad557776
I merged your complains with the "Feedback & comment to the Administrators and Moderators" thread, where they belong.

Hey Socratis & Mpack, How's it going?
Just wondering what this post got locked for:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=94020
Not wrangling for a change, just curious...

Hey Scott,

It seems that mpack banned user 'xxxyyy' with the "Troll" characterization on 2019-07-24 17:10 UTC, and nuked two more posts, no doubt with a good reason. I was out at the time and I didn't see the posts myself, since mpack didn't move them to the "Quarantine" area but simply straight deleted them. As far as the locked thread goes, I guess he didn't want to delete that specific thread because you had already replied.

For the record, I had already locked the post in that thread from 'xxxyyy', didn't like the looks of it either... ;)

From memory, he created a new topic (in "Windows Hosts" perhaps), to say "Hey Socratis, lots of people want to use OS X, you dumb". IMV when someone sets out to pick a fight with a moderator in only their third post (while at the same time displaying great ignorance and astonishingly bad grammar), that somebody finds themselves outside the door of the venue.

I checked his earlier posts for similar sins. His second post was a superfluous gainsay of a helpful post, based on aforesaid near total ignorance. His first post was the only one that looked legit, except that instead of acknowledging the answer he had gone on to the time wasting posts #2 and #3. I wondered if post #1 was a ruse. I decided to leave that post, but locked the topic, and gave our miscreant the bum's rush.

Even his name seemed to me to be chosen by someone who didn't expect to need it for long: troll.
