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

We all get frustrated at times and sometimes that frustration comes out in posts (hopefully with a short <sarcasm></sarcasm> tag..) but Roland’s posts _always_ have put downs for almost every other kind of developer except those in the medical/space community. I consider myself having pretty thick skin and I can ignore those posts (Gmail server side rules make sure of this) but at some point Roland needs to be told in no uncertain terms that the list is for questions/answers not long tirades. I don’t mind discussing the merits of the different systems, use-cases of those systems, developer learning and all that. Those can be enlightening discussions in and of themselves. But at some point, we as a community, just need to let Roland know that his demeanor is not conducive to getting responses on the list and soon will no longer be tolerated.

I'm with Jason here.
I use Qt for mobile development as well, and I don't think a ban is the right course of action. Choice of words is a pre-eminent selector in deciding which posts to take seriously. Using terms in the the manner Roland does about phone development, in all likelihood, self-disqualifies any serious consideration his posts might have received otherwise. Although a shame, that is repercussion enough in my opinion.

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.
