How can Habari be listed as contributor to TA when his/her profile has never been filed out?

I'm more concerned with the abuse going on in discussion 1099R4a - what's up with that - I take enough abuse from clients - who is this person - geez - is that allowed?
Actually Kevin went in and erased the abusive language, but it was extremely rude.

From my perspective as someone who has at times been unecessarily crabby, if you don't like the question you don't have to answer. This site is not exclusive and I don't think it should be. Note that Riley has never asked for a profile.

ask not that ye shall not be asked of

I think that's Almanac 3:49 or thereabouts

As I have said before, the letters after your name only indicate what you are supposed to know. A Wicki is designed such that information provided is user corrected, and no one is right all the time. Anyone concerned about the accuracy of Riley's answers, however, should go back to being John Doe.

I'm with Dennis - this is a public site. If things are getting out of hand - then we as professionals who come here on almost a daily basis should step in and attempt to stop it b4 it goes to far. But as I see it - that is about it.

At times, I see people getting ripped because they asked a question - to me - that is offensive - no matter how basic the question may or may not be. An old boss told me very early in my career - if you can not add to the conversation it is probably best to not say anything at all....

I do not care about the profiles either and do not feel this s/b as large an issue as some have made it to be. It is the question and the subject matter that is important in my opinion - not the profile that we can all learn from.

TDoyle appears to be AWOL. Must have been one good St. Patty's party.

Hmmmmm. 'bout time for someone to ask about losing their deposit on a home.

Regarding responding to certain questions - I totally agree - if you don't like the blog or can't add to it don't answer it - my issue was that someone called one of the responders a tax btch -I just thought that was a bit much for a site where we volunteer our time (even a public site) However, I found it funny that none of us were willing to jump into that one and say anything - I know I didn't want the writer to jump on my case -:)

Agree. Read posting what you like, respond to one you have answer, and move on. I read which interest me, respond to one for which I have answer right in my hand. I do not like to go do research and come back here (I cannot do multi tasking)and post answer.

Only reason I like to have profile so that construct answer accordingly. For Pro a short answer for a non-pro with some detail to help him/her out.

INa, I'm the opposite - I'll give more detail to the pro, but direct the DIYer to Publication 17 if the answer is clearly there.

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

OK, Tim, here is a suggestion: To become a Platinum Plus (or whatever is above platinum), a contributer must author an article here on the site. Not just make changes to someone elses, but do something significant.


It appears that "contributors" are ranked on postings, not just helpful postings, so someone who asks lots of questions can be ranked higher than someone who answers a few really good questions with much thought, research, and even provides links to proof.

...any bonus points for being the first to tell someone to seek professional assistance...sometimes that's the best advice one can receive

PVVCPA (talk|edits) said:

do we get points for talking about nothing in wee hours of the morning? like serving crappy coffee to clients using fine china.

or posting nonsense posts? such as this one?

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

now who's punchy?

Deback (talk|edits) said:

I agree with Dennis, Michael, and everyone who agreed with Dennis and Michael. Who really cares if someone doesn't fill out their profile? (When I mentioned something about Riley's profile in another thread, I was just kidding...)

Fine. I'm going right now to delete my profile!

I wonder what I did with my copy of "Ideals in the plays of Maxwell Anderson" that I wrote in 11th Grade. That oughta get me into Almanacers Heaven.

Count me in Michael's camp - agree with everything he said

Am I psychic or WHAT? Discussion: DOES A FORFEITED DEPOSIT RESULT IN A CAPITAL LOSS?

DT, you should also have accurately predicted my response to it. You knew it was coming, didn't you?

I did not expect the graphics. But then "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition."
