Must Be Nice Comments. Answered

I've been trying to upload comments to a micro controller forum and it continuously tells me my post isn't nice enough or isn't formated correctly. This is getting vary annoying. This stupid policy of letting a poorly thought out filter program block comments that don't fit a "nice" format needs to go. This is the post I'm trying to make.

I'm getting the following errors with the AtMega8. It must be a problem with the giveio driver which I have installed but it's still not working. All the forums say to just install it but that's not fixing the problem. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

avrdude: can't open device "giveio"

avrdude: failed to open parallel port "lpt1"

make.exe: *** [program] Error 1

> Process Exit Code: 2
> Time Taken: 00:00


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

So, uh, I suggest it requires formal writing, right? (If this comment is visible, please do not reply.)

You're using bad formatting - things like square brackets will upset the site, as the wiki formatting uses them for hyperlinks. The be-nice is always there. L
