Forum Post: "content too long, jerk" auto message

I tried pasting a list of demands I had seen (that I thought I had orginially seen on the OWS web stie.)I then got a red automated message "content too long, jerk" which really doesn't make me feel like participating at all; ie, one thing that has attracted me to Liberty Square is that people have conducted themselves in a respectful and polite manner. Why do you use such derisive language for your auto messages? Don't like being directed to join twitter either. Is there a place anywhere in this movement for longer more in-depth commentary and analysis?

OK, THANKS! I'm over it! :) To more important business, what about working on a list of demands? I like the "demands to congress": http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2011/oct/3/picket-occupy-wall-street-protesters-post-manifest

It's just humor. Techies often insert that stuff. Don't take it personally. After writing code for 15 hours, you'd do it too.

And despite TechJunkie being a dickless troll whoring for the corporate-controlled government that will eventually suck the change out of his mom's pockets if he gets his way, it is correct that computer programmers are not known for valuing public relations edicts. (I'm one of them as you can see)

The movement itself isn't really congruous with those values either. PR is more of a corporate phenomenon.

Computer programmers don't work in PR for a reason...

I'd guess that it probably came as a sstandard message with whatever forum software is used. Don't take it personally.
