[Interest] Netiquette [was: Feature Request - QtCreator - Multiple right margins]

The truth is I often enjoy the hyperbole. In my book it's better to have a thick skin rather than to go around being offended by everyone and asking for them to comply with a fragile nature. However this most recent post put down the Qt mobile community of which I am a significant member having been using Qt in mobile for about the past 5 years. I have argued repeatedly for more attention in the Mobile platforms (except WinRT) and the message was directly contrary to that aim. I pointed out (off list) ironically what should happen is port the application to mobile and just let Samsung make and revise the hardware faster than he ever could. Didn't draw any ire but it didn't go anywhere either. I'm starting to wonder if the hyperbole isn't for comedic effect. 

My plan of action is that I'm just going to ignore this person's snarky posts which comes with the price that I might have the answer to their issue and I won't contribute it. 

I on occasion post something snarky because I am frustrated with the problem I'm having. I wouldn't want to be banned over it. There is a social capital here, add I try to have a positive balance. And I think it's reasonable that when you fall below zero, you stop getting replies. I would not bring in the CoC just yet.
