I agree only insofar as nobody is ever benefited by insulting/denigrating other users. But that's not what Polytropon was doing, I don't think. Seems to me he was denigrating the Windows system itself. And this leads to where I disagree. I think denigrating other systems is a fine thing if and when the denigration is based on true differences and not unrealistic exaggeration. For example, "FreeBSD is more stable than Windows--Windows sucks, it's unstable!" OK, this is me denigrating Windows. Am I hurting Windows's feelings? Am I preventing a small market player from competing with the establish oligarchy? No. I'm parading the greatness of FreeBSD. Sure, I sound more like a human being having a little fun than a technical booklet, but so what--who says FreeBSD users can't be people too :) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
