ChaChi, are you like 11 years old or something? You're coming across like a whiny brat whose mommy forgot to get some Cap'n Crunch at the market. You can't stop crying over the fact that some hint you submitted wasn't published for reasons unknown, and this seems to have dealt a severe blow to your juvenile psyche. Well, boo-hoo-hoo. Get over it. You spew your whining invective and a barrage of punctuation marks whenever someone has the unmitigated temerity to object to your childish tantrums, and the only riposte you can come up with is "Bite me!" Really mature, and obviously the extent of your vocabulary. Why are you on this site during school hours? Why are you even on this site at all? Go back to Slashdot. Punk.

You don't even know the whole story. No one asks why someone around here is upset, they just feed into making them even more angry.

I've submitted hint after hint after hint and I have no idea whether or not the hints are even getting through or not. I've sent numerous emails to webteam2@macosxhints.com (which is the contact link at the bottom of the page) and have not had one single reply! I don't even know if my emails are getting through to them or not. The emails don't come back to me, so I assume they're going through OK.

What is childish? Is calling people names or telling them they're childish the way to go about anything either? I think not! I've tried everything I can think of to get this issue resolved and cannot resolve it no matter what I try!

Why am I here? Because I love OSX and love sharing what I learn about it with others. Is that not the reason you (and most other people) come here as well? Why should I take the time out of my day to submit a hint when I know it will never see the light of day? I've had 1 hint published out of about 25 that I have submitted.

I apologize that I, in my own personal frustration and anger, lashed out at you (or anyone else here for that matter).

I apologize ChaChi

Sorry if I got a little bent out of shape. We're all here because we love OS X, and we want to share what we've learned. Like I said earlier, if you have concerns about your hints not being published, please contact robg and let him know. If you had stated all of this at the outset instead of seemingly lashing out in a snit, I'm sure a lot of misunderstandings could have been avoided. As it is, please accept my apologies for anything insulting I may have said to you.

I deserved it...

Apologize? I deserved it! Your reply to me probably ticked me off about as much as my reply had ticked you off. Neither one of us deserves to be treated with disrespect, after all, there is a war going on right now!

I have not been stating my case properly, instead, I have been lashing out at everyone. Even those who have nothing to do with why I'm upset. How do you recommend I go about contacting robg (as you so boldly put it, pun intended)? I would like to figure out why the "Submit" button is working differently for me than others.

Thanx in advance for any info on how to resolve this matter and no hard feelings, just learning and moving on ;-)

I'm sorry for sniping at you like that. You can try robg@macosxhints.com to contact our fearless editor. He's usually very good about responding to messages, so I'm surprised to hear that your queries have been ignored. Cheers, pal.
