This thread is the continuation of
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21765176.html

In short - if you need me somewhere to do something - administrative help or whatever - post here. I will handle it or will ask Mods/Admins to help as soon as I can. You can use my mail also of course - it is all up to you.  CS is also an option but if the question is language specific, the Mods may decide to contact me anyway.

This thread will also be used for communication between experts also : for example If you are working with an Asker and you are in a dead end - just post a link here so the others can see it and come to help it.

And let me use this chance to say "Thanks" to every one of you. For all that you are doing!

B Grade means the solution was arrived at, but an exact answer was not given...  It's really up to the askers discretion...  That question seems to be a load of URLs and then helpful pointers, there isn't a "the answer is this" comment...

>> Write down REASONS gto react on them

I thought one-liners were enough to notify you like in the past, as to whether it needs a split/ re-open/ grade-change/ delete/ move, etc and then you decide.

>> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21816384.html

The answer which was accepted was a code sample that simply collaborated all other information provided by experts already, so it cannot be the only correct answer.

>> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21817588.html

It is my Q, I wanna re-open it for a split.

>> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21816662.html

mrigank pointed in the right direction to use CachedRowSet, I provided the correct download link, and again - a simple code sample got away with all the points.

>> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21796253.html

Its like asking for a whole book of information, I can't write more than I have already written on it.

>> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21821412.html

Actually both were meant for the same thing (in fact his last 3 or 4 questions were meant for the same thing) - he posted another one when he wasn't getting replies on the first one for a while. Your decision.

Something useful for the experts - we have now ability to upload files ( in our coding area it is really a good thing)
http://www.ee-stuff.com/Expert/

PS: You must login in order to access it. The login is the same as in EE ( it is saved nowhere and is only checked against the EE database for letting you in in case you wprry... ), this is an additional site for the experts/CVs/PEs/Mods and so on

Please note that the functionality is still in testing mode so in case you use it, make sure it is not too extensive for now. And please - do not upload inappropriate files... 'cause I will get really upset amongst all the rest

PS2: The site also has a few good things for Experts... it is supposed to become the community site which will work together with EE -- it is monitored from the Mods/Admins as this one is and so on.

The question link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21832794.html

The concern:
The second expert essentially repeated everything I said, even referring to my post for the URL to the needed resource. Perhaps the only statement of added value was the last -- "just include all the jar files in the lib to the class path". If you think that deserves an assist, well OK, I can live with that. But it sort of irked me at the time so I thought this once I would say so.

Yes, but the way he said it didn't make it look like a new Q, it looked to me more like he missed mentioning in his original Q (that he was using Eclipse and wanted to do on it).

A suspension is a big hard form of punishing. I think it must be taken only for really big events. GranMod could have his/her reasons, but I see in the last times "suspension" are given many more time as I remember before.
But, a suspension could be done when GranMod decide, so all we must respect his/her decision. It is a really big loosing seeing CEHJ not answering (mayankeagle, is it true he/she is not allready posting now?).
I hope CEHJ (and zzynx) come back from their decisions and GranMod see a different way of threating these events.

Well... this is not a court. Answering to a personal attack is a bad idea. Simply do not answer and let me handle it. When you continue posting even after I ask you to stop, you are in the same position as the one started all this. I thought we all are grown-ups that can shut up when needed and can tr yo behave professionally :)
 
Honestly, I would prefer never to need to ask for a suspension. But if someone plans to show full disrespect to my words as you did in the question, sorry - no way. We would not have this conversation if you had stopped after the first or the second time I asked you to stop. You did not.

And don't get the things reversed - if you get suspended in such situation it will not be for responding but for ignoring a Page Editor more than twice in the same question and advertising. I hope this made the things clear. I may be a nice person, but if I need to, I can be hard.

I still believe that one day you will decide that the good guys here and the not so good PE are a better reason to return than someone else to stop posting :))

In this case this was a different situation - someone unknown got over Mayank. Just because he wanted to... And the problem with Mayank was NOT that he responded at the beginning, but that he continued after I asked a few times to stop. Something that even you and the unnamed expert had never done - as far as I remember, none of you ever continued after 2 warnings in the same question :) So let's not try to search the same explanations :)

I know I didn't agree to what Venabili said but that is because I was forced to - I chose b/w self respect and patience. Might be a wrong decision for some, or a right one for some.
