While ranting might be good for the psyche there are trained psychiatric professionals that will readily listen to your rants. The PHP mailing list is not the place to vent. In every large community there will be those with less experience than others, and yes, many inexperienced programmers that will do whatever it takes to get things working, even if that means copying and pasting code they don't understand. Instead of ranting, a more useful approach would be to create a post that properly informs a user on how to populate a multiple option select box and eventually rank higher than any incorrect postings.

The irresponsible sloppiness and stupidity is just getting to me. In my quest for a way to populate a multiple option select box I have run across so many errors that it's beyond belief... such nonsense as "select for select or select="select" ( think this is right, but then who knows?) & other variations; then theres in_array() that has explanations about as clear as a cesspool - the way it's explained is not at all clear, -- and somebody did an in_array($tring, "text") - which is reversed... don't these idiots read what they are putting up on the internet? And some of you wonder why I ask stupid questions? Rare, indeed, is the clear explanation or demonstration. I get the impression that there are a lot of asholeys out there who learn the less than basic programming and then forget that even a ignoramus as I can be looking for rather complicated guidance. The Internet was a great promise, but god is is overbloated with floating intellectual excrement. Sorry, but ranting sometimes is good for the psyche. >:o -- Hervé Kempf: "Pour sauver la planète, sortez du capitalisme." ------------------------------------------------------------- Phil Jourdan --- p...@ptahhotep.com http://www.ptahhotep.com http://www.chiccantine.com/andypantry.php -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
