NEW NEWSGROUP PROPOSAL: microsoft.public.cert.exam.comptia

Discussion in 'MCSA' started by James D. Murray, Oct 2, 2003.

  1. This is a petition to see how many of my fellow microsoft.public.cert.exam.*
    newsgroups patrons wish to see a microsoft.public.cert.exam.comptia
    newsgroup added to the Microsoft news server.

    There's been a bit of a back-and-forth lately over posting questions about
    CompTIA exams in MCSA and MCSE-specific newsgroups. Four CompTIA certs are
    now accepted as electives for the MCSA and/or MCSE certs. It seems that
    Microsoft should add a CompTIA-specific newsgroup to its own news server to
    complement the existing alt.certification.a-plus,
    alt.certification.i-net-plus, and alt.certification.network-plus public
    newsgroups. Such a new newsgroup would be home for all questions about the
    CompTIA certs accepted by Microsoft.

    Give a reply if you think so or not.

    Since CompTia is vendor-neutral and Microsoft accepts their tests toward
    some M$ certifications, this is an appropriate platform upon which one can
    both ask - and field questions.

    Should there be a CompTia-specific newsgroup here, I would subscribe - but
    this group is as appropriate as any...

    Why reproduce already existing resources just because some people are too
    lazy to post in the proper newsgroups? Get your fat stubby fingers moving
    and post your questions in the proper newsgroup and stop wasting your time
    with petitions and defending yourself against being flamed for stupidity.

  4. Whoa! Such a nasty, bitter, narrow-minded response is worthy of those found
    on comp.lang.c++.

    If you had a question about CompTIA's Security+ exam, what would *YOU*
    consider to tbe the proper newsgroup?

    And you also haven't read the theads that I mentioned, because I was never
    flamed by anyone until you came along.

    James,
    Please re-read my post because you were not flamed, its not my fault you are
    so thin skinned.

    As for your comment on questions related to Security+ there are Yahoo groups
    to ask your questions on but since MS does not offer this exam why should it
    operate newsgroups to support people trying for Comptia certs? What next
    should they open a Linux forum?

  6. Techie, you and I have different definitions of what "being flamed" is.
    Asserting that I have "fat stubby fingers" and implying that I am stupid
    goes a bit beyond friendly flaming and borders on abusive.

    And MS *should* create a Linux certification newsgroup if they start
    accepting Linux cert exams as electives. That is linkely to happen only if
    MS creates a Windows-UNIX integration specialty for the MCSA/MCSE.

    Oh, wait--you were just going sarcastic with the Linux reference, wern't
    you?

    You need thicker skin James, if you felt any of my previous comments were
    abusive you obviously are new around here.

    Just because they accept a 3rd party certification as an elective does not
    mean they have to provide resources in order for you to get that
    certification. Novell accepts Comptia certs and they don't provide resources
    for them, but of course because its MS they have to right?

    Learn to use google and you will find tons of resources but of course you
    won't do that because its too much like work.

    Bullshit. Just because they are accepted as electives does not mean they
    are supported by MS. Go to the frickin COMPTIA site for that. How damn
    hard is that to understand tard?

    I think Microsoft should have a microsoft.public.peanutbutter.and.jelly
    newsgroup. Surely, most of their employees and most of their customers have,
    at one time or another, eaten peanut butter and jelly.

    How about
    microsoft.public.operating.systems.that.don't.require.patching.ever or
    microsoft.public.operating.systems.beta.tested.by.hackers.and.are.secure

    Or will that never ever be the case?

    Least it gives us something to do all day long.
