Fanbois - A study?

Recommended Posts

This is the first I have heard about this and it's really damn interesting. So many times this kind of person makes me exclaim WTF?! Sure, I get a lil grumpy from time to time, but this type of person goes off like you insulted their deceased mother if you criticism something they're into.

 

Well, someone actually did a scientific study on the behavior, and it explains a lot.

:facepalm: #define TRUE (!FALSE)

I ran across an article where the above statement was found in a release tarball. LOL! Who does something like this? Predictably, this oddity was found when the article's author tried to build said tarball and the compiler promptly went into cardiac arrest. If you're not a developer, imagine telling someone the literal meaning of up is "not down". Such nonsense makes computers, and developers... angry.
