The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

Anyione who asks 29 questions without earning a single reputation point should seek some other avenue of assistance. Allowing mfkpie8 to continue posting on this website is a waste of valuable time for everyone, mfkpie8 included.

I'm not sure - I can still improve on my understanding of Yoda speak:)

Seconded. I'm readily willing to share my insignificant knowledge as I see fit, but not without at least a proper intelligible question.

I guess the problem is evident - however, I hope someone might try Justin's suggestion from the other FAQ before, in case he's able to do so:

Maybe someone who can write Chinese (at Waterloo?) could post a polite note to mfkpie8 here to explain where he is going wrong in using the forum?

At least I still think the (mis-)use of the English language is the underlying problem...

I'd suggest that because this forum is well-known for its niceness, isn't it:)

I have been in contact over e-mail with this user. As far as I can tell, they are not posting maliciously. It is the language barrier that is the problem (the user is Chinese). I have forwarded the users information to some Chinese speaking people that can hopefully help him.
In my opinion, banning someone, for asking a question and trying to get help (however misguided) with SQL Anywhere in this forum is the wrong thing to do.
A polite "we don't understand your question" or simply ignoring the user would be a more appropriate response.

@Jason: I second that suggestion for the moment. And I don't think anyone here is assuming that this user has malicious intentions.

However, it is still a problem that many of our attempts to help and to ask for further information have not been successful - i.e. they have not made mfkpie8 to give the desired information. He has often re-posted but the new contents has not appeared to improve the question's background in most cases. And that surely has been disappointing for anyone involved...

Otherwise I would think we would have loved to vote the according questions up (and not down) - at least has what I would have done.

What is "BBS" - "Bachelor of Business Studies"?

(If so, that might explain the feeling of being invited to do your homework...)

As to your answer: I appreciate your intention but I don't feel able to understand your words (and Breck might add: "q.e.d.").
