Is this an invitation to get banned?

This is the same as saying: The 3 lions never hurt anyone until the 2 antelopes appeared before them. I think that the forum requirements must include a minimal skin thickness of, say, 10 cm.

Didn't you understand that he was joking?

Please stop your personal attacks!

They are not your enemies. They just have different opinions.

I see. But this also applies to your friend Khusraw, who obviously still lives in this forum's past.

What shall I do? Ban those three? This is still a discussion forum and I see different opinions here, but no personal attacks. But you are right, many recent posts should have been more objective. Therefore I admonish everybody to be more objective!

Nevertheless either choose to clarify wrong statements like sol's "4DOS is bloatware" or ignore these.

Glad to hear that. :-) So be wise and ignore them.

Are you really sure about that? What was Khusraw's last nice posting? I don't remember.

I've attended enough DOS forums (the 3 FreeDOS mailing lists, Udo's board, the 4DOS newsgroup) to say that I never saw anyone with behaviour like theirs there. But, birds of a feather flock together.

Banning them is not a solution - they'll create another forum of theirs.

Feathers of a bird...?

So what else could I do?

Wear layers of leather when you read the messages.

The corresponding Bulgarian proverb is ruder: The scabby donkeys smell each other even over nine hills.

Perhaps lock this thread?

I think, you didn't get the point. You wrote "birds of a feather", which seems to be wrong to me. "Feathers of a bird" sounds more reasonably.

That's the definition of enemy in Soviet Bulgaria! :)

And left/rewrote the last of Dos programs I used, making a lot of batchfiles that wrap SFN-only dos exes redundant. 4Dos was nice for that IIRC

Hmm, one of the main reasons I started running 4dos in the first place is that it left more conventional memory free than Dos in a shell. This because 4dos swaps itself out when a program is run, later versions of 4dos were pretty extreme in that (less than 10kb resident iirc)

Admitted, this was in Dos 6 times, dunno what the win9x dosses changed for that, since I never used them without 4dos - qemm - hyperdisk

I was joking and you didn't understand the joke because perhaps you lack this kind of humour. OTOH I still consider all posters to have the same rights and obligations.

Regarding the second part, I am very busy in this period of time. So it is not about "nice" posting, but posting generally speaking.

I don't live in the forum's past. I replied to this thread only when the forum began to remind me its glorious past.
