Having read the original revision of your post, I'm a little surprised that such an experienced user wouldn't have a better way of dealing with his posts being VTC'ed. Things may be different in the crowded, shouty city of Stack Overflow, but ASE is above all a friendly site. Mistakes happen sometimes, and if we think someone has made a bad call, we try to ...

Thanks. I was just about to create a "I retired as moderator" post, but Matthew was faster. It was fun being a moderator for this site for nearly 2 years. I can tell that it's true that one downside of being an mod is that you get to see all the low quality posts (and have to handle them), which is tiresome somehow. But on the other hand we have a site with ...

Your initial post was way to offensive. I am considering to delete it all together and taking additional measures, but first I want say a few words. There is absolutely no need to insult anyone. A user voted on some of your questions, so what? Nothing happened, and even if something had happened: Everything within the Stackexchange network can be reverted. ...

You're right that Bryan isn't very visible on the site lately, but he's still actively moderating. Don't forget that many moderation actions are invisible to normal users (with less than 10k reputation): deleting posts or comments, removing posts from review queues, messaging or suspending users. Even the more visible actions (closing questions, editing, ...

From How do comment @replies work?, I don't see any way to tag the moderator, unless they closed the question. Generally, it'd be preferable if you put a comment telling that the question might be off-topic and should be better posted on correct site (e.g. Super User). That way, other users can respond to your opinion, by upvoting it (showing an agreement), ...

I disagree with the answers regarding both types of water. Both ionized or de-ionized water will essentially destroy your devices very quickly, as in "becoming inoperative". Batteries are damaged very quickly by any water that can get to the electroyte. LCD screen are particularly sensitive to water leaking in at the edges; they may be usable, but would ...

OP changed his answer a bit based on the citations I provided. I still strongly disagree with any mention of rice as it is pure pseudoscience, but the answer itself is no longer harmful to devices. Therefore, my problems with this answer are gone. I've given it an upvote. I'd like to mention that this is only possible because OP still uses stackexchange. ...

First to read: What is the etiquette for modifying posts? and Why can people edit my posts? How does editing work? The first link is an FAQ from Meta Stack Exchange (aka the main meta), and the second link is an article in the Help Center. It is clearly stated that Edits are expected to be substantial and to leave the post better than you found it. ...

Alright, let's see here what I interpreted, to let others see. Links enclosed for reference: Heimdall errors, "ERROR: Failed to detect compatible download-mode device." - Screen dump, with heimdall v1.4.0 no question asked, this was asked 12 hours ago. The log dump indicated this - $ sudo heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img - ok so I thought, ...
