SQL> delete from threads where title like '%salary%';

Honestly, if I read another thread about salary I am going to post a really angry response...something awful like "Oi, you. No !!"

http://www.payscale.com/research/CH/...zerland/Salary

There are people that have jobs, people that live on the salary that those jobs pay. They can do it. You can do it. Stop boasting about 150K+ salaries, stop bemoaning <60K salaries. Salaries are market related and people in work do not starve.

...and poster !="UptheHatters2008".

Rollback!

Perhaps it's time to consider a ban on salary related questions?

Re: SQL> delete from threads where title like '%salary%';

I could probably write that SQL statement, and support it going forward. What do you think is a reasonable amount to charge for this?

I don't know which is worse: the threads asking about salaries, or the threads complaining about the threads asking about salaries.

Free.

It's MySQL. If you don't do it, somebody else will and probably has.

You make your money in fixing it

I know, it's crazy isn't it, people asking about Swiss salaries on a forum catering for information about life in Switzerland. Whatever next, posting about cars in a car forum? I personally think the numerous pointless bitching threads about salaries, like this and the one Peg A made, are far more irritating than the harmless threads where people seek advice about salaries in a country they want to move to, and which to be fair have more right to be posted than these do.

80,000chf if you would like to live comfortably - you could live on half that - or not live on double that depending on how often you read the Guardian.

They have all been asked , and answered before. It's the lack of searching and the dive right in and let somebody else do my work for me attitude that peeves me.

Sometimes I suspect bragging (is 250K enough....) Sometimes I suspect ignorance and laziness (I work in IT, doing a standard job in a bank that pays Market rates, is this enough , yeah I did search (feebly) and can't be arsed to Google, but hey there suckers, let me waste your time and not mine, after all, you should know how much I should earn and not me, you should do the diligence and trawl the internet for my specific circumstances not me.)
