1) don't post stupid shit in lj_dev
2) have the balls to not delete it after everybody gives you crap.
Heh ... I think we need a new logprop that community admins can set: undeletable. Or, better, a journal-wide option: posts are undeletable except by admin after comments are left.
Anyway, I'm serious. lj_dev is not /support/ ... keep using it as such and I'll make this community closed to the ~5 people I regularly get patches from.
