On the social side of things, many mac users are morons, which means only that they are in fact, actually people

Exactly the point! People are such jerks. I think we should get rid of them.

And they, like all the other macpeople Ive ever met, are smug bastards who waste no time preaching about how superior their little tintoy is. Yet they dont really know anything about computers and always start crying and assume a fetal position at the sight of a text prompt.

Funny that all Mac people I have met (all are Computer Science students) are exact opposites of what you described here. Given your track record of Apple hate, what conclusion can be drawn here? :)


That your school's CS program is overrun by hippies?

In my experiences most mac users are computer neophytes that have bought into the "Macs are cool" hype apple is putting out. They don't brag at all, just some complaining about compatibility issues that pop up now and then.

On the social side of things, many mac users are morons, which means only that they are in fact, actually people and not the next stage of human development. PC "hardcore" are just as obnoxious, but instead of boasting about things that they don't know about, the boast about things that no one else cares about.

What's really sad is when a guest speaker who has worked long and hard on a presentation finds out that his Mac laptop doesn't connect up so well to a PC-based organization's system. And how is it that's all the organization's fault? Hel-lo.

Isn't that the truth, same goes for Linux. Why attack small markets when you can attack the windows community which is huge. That commercial does need some small print stating this. lol

Thread Pruned: I loved the cartoon - but it has been brought to my attention that there was profanity in one of them that crossed the line.

Back when I was a mod, I would ban people for making stupid reports :)

Is that also the reason why you're not mod anymore?

No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out. :)

This is a perfect example of another problem. Not just people being jerks, but the reason behind it. You see, Being a jerk isn't what mac people are known for, being a jerk is what you know mac people for. I think one of the biggest problem, is that some people have just not come into contact with the right people. If all you ever comes in contact with are jerk mac people, then of course that will be your opinion of them. Is it a correct opinion? Absolutely not, but really, can we blame you? If you're only exposed to a certain kind of person, you begin to assume that that's how the majority of them are. The media will do this too. Show you a worst case example, and people take it as the norm.


Part of the problem is that the jerks on all sides of the computer argument, are usually the most vocal.

No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out. :rolleyes:

Actually, Jim tried taking the blame upon himself and sent a credible threat to the mod team that caused me to curse his name and tear apart my system and rebuild it to counter the 'threat' he posed. :thumbsup:

His trying to cover your ass actually caused me to even more secure my rig. Not sure I'm going to thank him for it though :wink: .
