Personal attacks will get you banned here. Please don't post like this again.


Why do you think that was a personal attack? Simply described a perspective calmly. Perhaps your mood has colored the reading.

I read it as you calling the other user a bootlicker.

It's a class of folks with a certain perspective. Whether a person chooses to join it at a particular time is their business.

It is the difference between saying you ARE bad, versus you SAID/DID a bad thing. I didn't say the person was one on purpose, perhaps wording not strong enough.

I'm not sure what you're trying to argue here, but you can't call people names like bootlicker on HN. This is in the site guidelines: https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html

If you'd please err on the side of being respectful in the future, we'd be grateful.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
