I've been lurking around and reading some of the reactions to the "new" guidelines for posting comments. It seems to me that the message is simple. Instead of using the phrase
use the phrase
"you seem to have grossly overestimated the compensation to which you are entitled"
Both get the point across that the OP is asking for way more than is warranted, but one is "nicer" than the other. Yes, I have said aloud as reading "what a #*&$* idiot" or some such, but in the interest of keeping my responses PG rated at worst, I refrain from typing out the thoughts.
Most people out there word their responses very politely while still getting the point across rather scathingly. Those are consistantly the ones that make me laugh and I love every one of them!
