not only do you register to chastise the way people respond to someone...
Actually, ladydelaluna, I have been registered for a while. I had to do a new registration today because for some reason, WordPress decided not to remember me. I was unable to log in with my old credentials, so I had to create new ones.
And it is not my habit to make comments that insight descent or cause strife. I am usually very mellow and avoid conflict. In this case, though, I felt I had to say something. Being a new user to WordPress myself, I found it very rude and condescending for Whooami to respond the way she did. It was uncalled for.
Therefore, in my opinion and through my experience, wordpress does not insert <div> tags, and perhaps it's YOUR method of posting (copy and pasting from elsewhere, say another site or a word processor/document perhaps?) that might be causing that to happen. However the fact remains that wordpress itself does not add <div> tags. I'm quite sure that if it did, the issue would've been resolved in the ongoing development of the software, probably long ago, in fact. Time to take a little internal peek at yourself, dear. It might just be YOU who's wrong.
My method of posting is by typing directly into the WordPress editor. I use the very tools WordPress gives me to add content, including posting images using the upload feature. I have not used any other method, and when I go into the HTML editor for WordPress, I have seen the <div> tags. It usually doesn't happen, but I've seen it periodically in the very short time I've used WordPress.
It's quite unfair of YOU to assume that everyone uses wordpress the way YOU do, and provide your "solutions" based solely on the way YOU misuse the software.
Now who's putting words in who's mouth, huh? First of all, I don't misuses the software. Second, I never assumed anything. I merely offered a suggestion based on my own experience. As I stated above, I am not doing anything out of the ordinary with WordPress. I'm using the very tools it provided with no modifications. I'm not sure exactly how you came to presume that I am misusing the software unless, of course, you "assumed" that's what I'm doing.
Regardless of the "tone" of whooami's posts - she was never NOT helpful. She still gave links to where the problem had been solved before. Unlike yourself, who decided that you wanted to be a martyr today, and offer up random "just me" type of resolutions amidst your attacks on the rest of us. Good goin' preacher boy.
I never suggested she wasn't. I never denied that she didn't post links to help Deb0 find her way around. I think tone is extremely important when providing help. If I go to someone asking for assistance, and the tone they respond with is condescending, rude, and in some cases insulting, giving me every indication that I'm a bother just by asking, then what incentive do I have to seek help again? Certainly not from the person who I just asked.
My tone wasn't any better, I know. For that I apologize. And I'm certainly not about to tell you or anyone else how to feel. I'm just saying that there's two ways to tell someone something. You can be condescending and rude, or you can be nice and easy to deal with. It's possible to say "Go look it up" either way. That's the only point I was trying to make with this whole thing.
Deb0, I apologize for turning this into a slamfest. It was not my intent. If I could rescind my comments, I would.
