With regards to this question.
can jsoup implement compareDocumentPosition?
As in org.w3c.dom Node...
Is there any way of simulating this in Jsoup that anyone knows of?
For some reason I have got "does not meet quality standards" with the above text. I can't think what to add...
wow some eejit just down-voted this question... but it's a perfectly good question... far far better no doubt than most of the qus posted by the eejit in question! Takes all sorts!!!
And the comments...
Ok, well you're getting a downvote from me too - Please at least try to provide some information. The reason it doesn't meet quality standards is that your question is so short, it provides no detail of what you're trying to achieve. Also, you should use correct english "eejit" "qus" etc... Finally, there's no need to call anyone an idiot in the first place. – Basic 7 hours ago
@Basic get you! org.w3c.dom is enough to tell anyone familiar with Java all they need to know here... if a package as well known as org.w3c.dom feels that it is useful to compare 2 Nodes relative positions then you can be sure it would be useful in Jsoup. If you don't understand you shouldn't be answering the question... indubitably what makes you a bit of an eejit too, IMHO – mike rodent 7 hours ago
You'll note I commented, not answered and I was attempting to explain why someone else might've downvoted you (and why I did). If you don't like my reasons, well that's just unfortunate. – Basic 7 hours ago
I've flagged it for moderator attention as I don't personally believe it's good quality (or that the tone is appropriate). The flag has been under review for quite some time (> 7 hours) so I assume nobody really knows what to do with it.
I've avoided commenting further as I don't want to start an argument. What's the appropriate response to situations like this? I personally feel the question is needlessly "conversational" and that the OP is being argumentative for the sake of it. It certainly doesn't seem to be the usual high quality of question I normally find on SO, but the lack of response to the flag makes me wonder if I'm wrong?
