I'm not seeing any assholery so far in this discussion...
People have made a number of suggestions for you - try a language like Python over C as it's easier for beginners, and any number of suggestions of things you could try to code as practise. These are not "asshole" things, these are people trying to be helpful.
All of those suggestions, you've immediately rejected. Which is fine, you have your reasons, and not every suggestion is going to be useful to everyone. People may disagree with some of those reasons, or try to offer additional suggestions to mitigate them (like using a programmer-focused text editor to alleviate the problems you have with Python's indenting rules). This is still not assholery. This is people seeing you say you have a problem, and offering ways to either reduce, or work around the problem.
But when every
suggestion that is made gets immediately turned down... that's when I start to think that you're probably not after actual advice... but just want a place to vent. Which is also fine... I know I get in that state from time to time, where I just want to complain about a thing, and don't want to be offered advice on how to fix it from people who don't know the whole story... and I don't feel like explaining
the whole story to anyone... and then the advice just makes me angrier, until it all ends up a miserable time for everyone. Which is why I asked whether you're actually after advice here. (In the Rant thread in General, for instance, it has actually become the de facto norm to not
offer advice unless someone actually asks for it, for exactly this reason. Unfortunately we don't have a rant thread here in Coding, it all gets rolled up into this FT thread, so it can be hard to tell what you're after without asking.)
All that said... if there's something I am missing that you think is someone being an asshole, please feel free to point it out (ideally via private message
, or by reporting the post in question) and I'll look into it.
