I don’t like you, Mr. Stack Overflow editor

Stack Overflow is awesome. It has a lot of answers to questions I have about specific programming problems I run into daily.

But Stack Overflow’s moderators are not awesome. A few words to describe them:

  • narcissistic
  • pedantic
  • nit-picking
  • holier-than-thou
  • egotistical
  • unhelpful

I’m pretty certain I can find that list somewhere in the Bible, somewhere where it says, “Yeah, see that list? Don’t be that guy.”

I don’t like you, Mr. Stack Overflow editor. (And I get the feeling that those feelings are mutual.)

For an example of the things that make me angry, please read this example:

Granted, Mr. abamert isn’t a moderator, but this is just an example of the exact annoying behavior the moderators display. Maybe my answer didn’t explain things to his satisfaction, but I *did* answer the question correctly. Annoying.
