This is why I hate it when requesting help in American support forum. The people there may be very helpful but most of them are jerks.
The other day I was requesting for a way to reset Akismet stat, of which is now irrelevant to me that I have implemented an automated way to discard spam comments in this blog, but that CAPTCHA-based method still relies on Akismet’s AI and Bayesian filter to recognize the spam. However Akismet is required in that method only if the spambot passed the CAPTCHA test, of which none of them succeed since the past few months.
In my request in that support forum I politely asking if it’s possible to reset the Akismet stat. I did mention something like “if you have something that you know then share, but if you don’t know anything then don’t bother to reply” without giving any specific reason of why I wanted to do that in the first place though, because for me it doesn’t matter. I was just expecting as many answer/method to get the job done, regardless of the reason. Then the first reply I got is from a jerk who keep insisting to know exactly my reason of doing it.
Man why does that relevant? Not only that I even got replies saying “why bother?” and “the stat doesn’t hurt so why don’t you just keep it there?” as well as “the stat is something helpful to you as the admin so it’s pointless to reset it”.
That is what I call a stupid reply to a help request. I clearly stated that if you know something then tell me but if you don’t then just keep quiet. Heh! I guess those idiots will never listen and understand. They replied because they want to look cool or supportive although the fact is they only show their stupidity. The answer to a “yes/no” question is either “yes” or “no”, not something else, you idiot.
