It is a manifestation of crowd mind, when the intelligence of the
smart individuals takes a dive for the bottom as they become fully
integrated in the crowd. DFS, Hadron, Ezekiel, and Doctor have
managed to get Tim and Erik to participate in childish "prove it" and
"are to/am not" arguments.
Two weeks ago Tim started his spiral down in a thread about Best Buy
not selling Linux computers when there is a Microsoft alternative.
Tim suggested that asking a Best Buy official who actually knew the
store's policy was better than the ramblings of a floor worker.
*Sigh*, yes that would obviously be better, but Good Lord. This is
Usenet, not a research centre. First off, where do you find a
corporate Best Buy person that's going to know? Especially one that
will violate all the NDAs this information is wrapped in? This Bozo
would have to not be worried about losing his job, nor about the
lawsuits over NDAs, and not worried about the time lost to
depositions, court appointments, legal research, and on and on
andonandonandon. "Ask someone that knows" ... what a nice glib
reply. Makes the other side look stupid and usually no-one picks up
on how utterly useless and impossible the suggestion is.
Threads in this group that go over 25 postings usually devolve quickly
into infantile personal sniping. There is no hope for the DFS/Hadron
types, but maybe Tim and Erik can break free of the crowd and put some
thought into their posts.
