WHAT???????????   I gave him the function name that he needed, and a link to the documentation on how to use it!!!!!!!!!

It was NOT a blind link, it was a link to the php manual for that function.

He accepted MY answer, and I am the one who offered to share the points.

I totally agree with yodercm. I think the new policy of EE to censor comments which are unoffensive and politically correct is wrong in general. Censoring links to external sites, even if Q&A sites, makes EE to become a closed world and this goes against any acceptable concept of knowledge, especially scientific knowledge. It's a mystical perspective wich makes EE more similar to a beliefs than to a scientific community.

In this case, I think it has been applied erronoeusly: so, IMHO, a double error.

The really sad part of this is that I DID show it.  I gave exactly what the asker needed, and he accepted my post over that of marquisG's posted first, clearly proving that mine was more useful.

I also gave a link to the documentation that was self-explanatory.  Would it have made a difference if I had posted

"You need to use the strtolower() function, and the documentation is here:  ... yadayada link"

Does a concise answer rate lower than a wordy one, when the same information is totally obvious?   The asker accepted the concise answer.
