hello and twitter
« on: August 05, 2014, 10:10:56 am »
Hey there,

Used Winbatch heavily from 2007 - 2011 but haven't been able to grab it at the job sites since. Hopefully soon. Miss it.

Are you guys going to open a twitter account? I don't do the Facebook thing. (snob, I know).

No plans to create a WinBatch Twitter account. Sorry.

Out of curiosity, what benefits would you hope to derive from yet another distraction?

Guess that can cut two ways, so correct me as to which is more applicable:

1. Twitter is a distraction, hence the "yet"

2. My post is a distraction, which is probably true but renders the "yet"=false as it's my first in a looong time, and I was suffering a bout of nostalgia for Winbatch.

I think Tony meant that Twitter is yet another distraction. I don't have a Twitter account, either.

The word "distraction" is ambiguous here, as it is a word with lots of different usages and meanings.

I actually think the word that we are seeking is "dilution".  The idea is that the more forums we have to support, the more work it is for the moderators and the less value it is for the users.
