For Jeff Bailey: The distribution of the articles/content in clc

Discussion in 'C Programming' started by Kenny McCormack, Mar 26, 2008.

  1. Your perception of this ng is accurate. To clarify further, I generally
    say that the content is:

    65%: The endless topicality wars, with the featured attraction
    being the frequent Heathfield/Navia battles. This is obviously
    the substance of the group, and what keeps people coming back
    for more.

    30%: Newbie questions, technically not off-topic, but often
    bordering on trolling - given that they are often of the:
    What does "i = i++ + ++i" do?
    variety. Note that even though these are not technically OT,
    they are all covered in the available body of text which newbies
    are expected to have read and digested before posting - i.e.,
    the FAQs and the standards documents. They are, by the
    standards of most normal newsgroups, in the category of "bad
    questions" - questions that should not be asked, since they've
    all been asked many times before, and the answers have all been
    written down.

    5%: The remaining bits are the "language lawyering" stuff - of
    great interest to those who care about such things, but utterly
    boring to normal people like us.

    So, there you have it. HTH.
