Forums > Administrators' noticeboard archive > NB:Unjustified insults from admins

I'm concerned by this:

"Then Kaspersky is freaking retarded. WebCite uses iframes to show the header that identifies it as an archived website, but I've examined the container, top frame, and bottom frame, and there's no malicious code. I've run multiple archived pages through multiple scanners and come up with not even false positives. If there's an infection anywhere, it's either on your computer, or in your head. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 10:05, May 26, 2012 (UTC)"

If a regular user posted something this insulting and condescending they would most likely be banned, however Darth Culator seems to be setting a precedent. I realise this was directed at me directly, however have witnessed Culator dish this to other users in the past.

Would welcome comment from the other admins. Jartka'irn 03:22, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

  • Maybe we'd take you a little more seriously if your userpage didn't claim you had left forever. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 03:26, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thankyou for pointing that out. It has now been rectified. However, back to my original point... Jartka'irn 03:32, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
      • That particular comment was based on years of experience in technical support and not meant as an insult. People tend to assume that everyone has the same problem that they have, when most of the time the problem is either a false alarm or an infection on their own computer causing them to believe that their service provider is down or the site they are accessing is bad. A false positive could be causing you to jump at shadows, or your antivirus could be reporting on a different tab or window you have open, or you could be reading the alert wrong, and in any of those cases the problem is in your head. So stop being so damn oversensitive. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 03:43, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
      • As I had pointed out in that thread, Kaspersky does have a knack for false positives. My brother, a programmer for the DoD (since we're throwing out credentials), doesn't recommend that program due to that. It's a good program, yes, and for the most part, it's reliable. However, Kaspersky is too good at what it does and it will flag benign objects as trojans or other malicious things. My brother learned this from experience, when Kaspersky flagged something in his registry as "bad" and proceeded to quarantine it. After an exhaustive search of the object, there was nothing that he could find that said it was bad. The object being disabled also screwed up a few programs. My brother found that this is a common occurrence for Kaspersky, and shortly after that, he removed it and got a different antivirus. I suggest considering looking into another program, as this may not be the first time that Kaspersky has done this to you. Trak Nar Ramble on 04:01, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
