Why is THIS comment board being trolled by "EE" workers, users, supporters, etc ??? At first glance, I didn't even have a clue what "EE" stood for. Then I connected the dots myself - EE means "experts-exchange". But after reading thru 32 pages of "expert" comments, I beg to differ. If you scroll down to the bottom of their "answers" page, the "answer" has been REPLACED by the following:
"Comments are available to members only. Sign up or Log in to view these comments."
Gee, thanks for wasting my time.
I use this site a lot to answer questions I have at work. You don't need to sign up for anything. The replies to the question are always at the bottom of the page. Sure, if you sign up, you can view the answer right at the top, but why would you?
Somehow, Experts Exchange maintains a heavy search results presence, but requires a subscription to access any significant content. The same material is available for free elsewhere.
This is not an actively malicious site. It is an annoying low-level scam that pollutes search engine results.
Site is always fast, I get quick responses on any question I ask. One of the best features is, that while delphi is becoming less popular as programming language, at this site you still get a response straight away on any topic of your choice, any delphi version. And most other great forums seem to have died a bit on this subject
I use this site and it has been giving me decent answers for years. The trolls complaining about being able to get the same info elsewhere for free don't understand that you can still see the answers when you scroll down for free. There used to be a grease monkey script that would remove the need to scroll down.
After years of using the site, I finally paid for a membership. Not cause it gave me any great new ability or feature. I just wanted to support the site.
croll down to the bottom of the pages for the answers, No need to "sign up".
They are Hidden at the bottom of the page.
Sleazy scam to make people pay for freely available content
that was provided/collected by other people.
If you sign up and pay for expert help, you DO get legit answers. I use this site with no problems at all. Don't rate a site badly simply because you don't want to pay for a PAID service. Think about it people, you're being stupid and selfish. Ever hear of a BUSINESS?
Also, it is NOT just paying members answering questions. When you are an expert on experts-exchange, you do NOT have to pay for a subscription. It becomes free, and experts get special benefits and free t-shirts for helping people out from the goodness in their hearts.
Please learn about how the site works BEFORE you post comments with false information. That is called SLANDER and is punishable by law, and you could get sued by the business owner for it.
I thought it was against Google's policy for a website to display one piece of information to the Googlebot yet another to an actual viewer but these guys seem to get away with it. Very questionable and they come up far too often. Spam spam spam =/
