Q: How do you deal with the "know-it-all"?

MarinaioYou know the type: Me: I was reading on Stack Exchange that I can do X. Them: Oh, knowitall.com has better instructions -- Me: I just bought this tool to build X. Them: Yeah, I have that tool and all the accessories. You should have asked me. -- Me: Gee,that corner house is for sale. Them: Yeah,...

@ExtrovertedMainMan Step 1. Stop trying to fit in people into a stereotype you can hate and assume maybe they either know more than you or wanna help you.
If you have no interest in the information, just say that. Somewhere with these labels frankness goes down the drain.
 
5:49 AM
Morning!
@CaldeiraG No worries, we can wait :)
I love waking up to the smell of meta downvotes and smartass comments this morning... (meta.stackexchange.com/a/352575/369802 if you want to know what I'm talking about)
 
6:25 AM
Morning Fellow-IPSler :3
How were your weekends :)
@M.A.R. Honestly... lower the cynicism regulator a little and elaborate further on that and.... Without having read the question yet, that sounds like making up a valid frame challange ^^
But chances are I might just find that OP being closed already anyways, when I am gonna open it now :'D
 
@dhein Mostly really slow, didn't do much except hang in front of a screen. Though we did have a barbecue yesterday. And there?
@dhein Heh, yeah... I closed it because while those were some great examples... just read the comment I left :P
 
6:42 AM
Ignore that
I read the wrong post xD
 
Hahaha I was wondering where I wrote anything like that! My original draft included something about the CoC being a vague line because what do you do if people feel comments are harassing them? but I realized that it wouldn't matter for the answer so I cut it out XD
(Or, rather, that that example would be too specific to a specific case instead of general guidance)
 
@Tinkeringbell Ok giving it another try xD So about hopefully now your post... Well... I totally agree with you Tinki. Well and rationally phrased, good explanation on your perspective as mod on it and also giving a (despite for OP likely unsatisfying) practical conclusion --> ask where this is supposed to be asked. Still... You had not expected this NOT being downvoted, did you? ^^
 
@dhein I had expected 1 from the OP XD Not wake up with 4.. I'm half expecting OP shared it somewhere with like-minded people, given that both mine, Geek's, and the other answer all got quite a few downvotes.
 
@Tinkeringbell Mine past just bye like an eyeblink. I am co organizer of an small event a friend is hosting on saturday. And we had an barbecue with the closer participants of it in a small circle. Since Munich is 4 hours drive for more and I stood longer than I actually planed to, I was staying at the friends place who organizes it and we also spent sunday together and... it just feels like right now its still saturday morning for me xD
Hope your barbecue was similiar great :3
 
@dhein It was just my parents and younger brother, but yeah, it was fun :) A bit cold maybe, but you can wear proper clothes for that ;)
My weekends seem short too.
But yours sounds like it flew by :D
 
6:57 AM
@Tinkeringbell :D
Morning!
 
@Tinkeringbell Given that (without knwoing the dispute myself) it sounds from the post like there were several people involved, I think its a given that it ofcause had been shared :P But still. Fair point you posted there.
@Tinkeringbell A bit cold... We wished we would have had that impression from the 36 degree C we had in the shadow ^^
@Tinkeringbell Totally.
@CaldeiraG 0/
@Tinkeringbell What the heck... thats one of the lowest quality posts I have read for ages x'D
 
@dhein You haven't read much then, lately? :P
@dhein Oof! It was really hot here on Friday too, over 30 in the shadows, but luckily Saturday was a bit cooler and Sunday was ... a bit cold XD
I think we had just over 20 degrees here yesterday, and quite a bit of windchill.
@dhein Heh. I'll leave the answer, I think with time (and gently linking people to it :P) it'll get a better score.
 
@Tinkeringbell Well... just started doing so again, like 2 weeks ago. Maybe thats why ^^
 
that meta question seems... controversial atleast or just people who support OP in some way
Geek's sitting at +9/-7
 
@dhein Hahaha. It's okay. We do get mostly questions that forget to include the 'what have you tried' part...
 
7:08 AM
@Tinkeringbell Fishing for reputation xP
 
@CaldeiraG It was sitting at -7/+6 when I wrote my answer yesterday. So I guess I should've expected this, kinda? :P
 
yeahh
 
@dhein Nah. Fishing for attention, the reputation is just a pleasant side-effect ;)
 
I'm certainly not really worried about rep
i keep losing it on SU due to questions cleanup
 
@Tinkeringbell When I was driving home yesterday in the evening it was... sort of stormy... at one point it just started out of a sudden raining so heavily, that I had to brake down on the highway down to 30 kmh to properly be able to see again. braking down from 140 to 40 with having a viewing distance below 10 meters out of a sudden was really scarry ^^
 
7:10 AM
Me neither, I have quite enough of that on MSE. I would have to write the most impopular answer ever (even worse than the ones written around the end of last year) for that to all burn up XD
 
@Tinkeringbell Hey, I am not judging at all :P
 
@dhein Oof, yeah, that sounds scary!
 
my SU rep history XD
 
WOah..
Are those all suggested edits?
 
looks like it
I earned about 984 rep in suggested edits
 
7:13 AM
That's a lot of cleanup :)
 
today
> earned 724 reputation from suggested edits
so about 200 gone XD
 
That kinda sucks... would more cleanup make you lose any privileges?
 
sitting at 2.3k right now
so not in a immediate effect
but probably should pump up that number
 
Depends on whether you want to keep being able to make unsuggested edits, I guess? ;)
 
atleast i do some review queues
until i'm review banned for a stupid misclick XD
it happened before
 
7:21 AM
Oof!
 
the system is a bit flawed sometimes but i did some mistakes too
so it's 50/50 when i get review banned so to speak
used to do the queues daily so if you make a mistake on 2 days yeah you're out
XD
 
ah, yeah... I'm kinda both glad and disappointed sometimes that automated review bans aren't on IPS.
On the one hand you'd need to make a conscious effort to check the reviewing.
On the other, the problems some sites have with automated review bans would only be worse on IPS ;)
 
yea

7:37 AM
Morning people :)
 
Hey! :)
How are you today?
 
Ael
I am fine. Even though I just spend 30 minutes mostly not working ^^ And you?
 
Same here. But in my defense all the queues were blocked so I couldn't do any work :P
(except telling people that the queues were blocked).
So I spent most of my morning chatting with people.
 
Ael
7:58 AM
Well, I don't have such excuses. It is just that I am having a hard time wanting to work when I just finished my big (and interesting) task last Friday. Now I have to focus on another project and it just doesn't seem as interesting
 
Ah, that's a good excuse too!
 
8:34 AM
Well it looks like the client isn't going to be back to working in offices a lot. For a team of 12, we have three days where there's desks for us... but only 6 desks each day. XD
 
XD

11:00 AM
looks like very few people are reviewing stuff on SU
i wish SE would increase this to 40
 
11:15 AM
You can ask?
 
11:33 AM
I tried checking on Meta, no dice
Don't have much reason than I want to review more as a user
 
11:46 AM
Talking about coronavirus is a hoax, Bolsonaro got a lung infection
Most likely linked to his coronavirus case
 
@CaldeiraG Ah... well if the queue is always full that might be a reason too. If there's more people that just you that would like to review more and it would lead to emptier queues, and faster attention for posts that need it...
@CaldeiraG Oh, I think it does, yes.
 
12:16 PM
@Tinkeringbell i think it's the summer season in general
i haven't see that full of a queue before
@Tinkeringbell yea very likely
 
@CaldeiraG Isn't that supposed to be September, when all the new students start asking? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell yea i guess? XD
homework questions kinda of suck though :p
 
@CaldeiraG Wanting another to suffer is so wrong yet irresistible in this case
 
@M.A.R. well, i don't even have 200 rep on SO xd
@M.A.R. well he is also following Trump's steps
 
12:33 PM
@dhein You give too much credit to my attention sp OH LOOK a meta rant
