I wrote " Some frivolity is tolerated" especially in the Kopitiam. I am not against light-hearted OT and frivolity. But sometimes it does get out of hand. Of course different people have different tolerance levels. But once the pandora box is opened, where is the end?
And yes, you are of course right in your last paragraph. What I am going to say may make me a lot of enemies. But this is democracy, right? So here goes!
I know the general intellectual capacity of the members here. It is not very impressive. From the way these people wrote, they will not even begin to understand what the issues are! Such is the level, or lack of it, of intelligent thinking!
But there are many people here who are genuine to participate and contribute in this forum. And for these people, it is worthwhile to continue in CS.
