    I knew one of you two was going to post a response like that. No, I don't think all computer professionals are geeks. As a matter of fact, its more the opposite...

    "Only in your little mind. FYI...there are these things in the corporate world called 'servers'. Occasionally, they require something called 'maintenance'. This 'maintenance' must be done at times referred to as 'after hours' or 'weekends'. This leads to something called 'flex time' where I can spend time with beings referred to as 'a wife' and 'a daughter' or do things like 'yardwork' when no one's home so that I can spend more time with aforementioned 'wife' and 'daughter'. But you go ahead and believe whatever gets you through the night."

    Again, its pretty obvious a good amount of your personal time is spent here as well. While I don't doubt that a decent amount of your time on the job is spent on message boards, if you think anyone believes that all/most of the time you spend on this board is job-related, you're not fooling anyone.

    "Yes, perhaps he's trying to deflect his own attention from his own lack of life by projecting it onto others to give himself a sense of superiority."

    I think you just revealed the underlying, personal reason why you made that statement. Funny...

    And yet you have no real evidence of it. The most you can claim is that my post count is high. Considering that it averages out to less than three posts a day, I'm not sure how you think that's a lot of time (unless you type and think with the speed a sloth).
    While I don't doubt that a decent amount of your time on the job is spent on message boards,
    Actually, I wouldn't even call it a decent amount.
    if you think anyone believes that all/most of the time you spend on this board is job-related, you're not fooling anyone.
    Far be it from me to deprive anyone of whatever delusions they wish to believe. Besides, why exactly should you care about it?

    Was Paul Reubens your logic teacher? Most of your 'arguments' seem awfully reminiscent of his.

    Damnit to hell! Someone needs to email me when these things get going. Now I have 4 pages to pick through when I get to work. But, to get started: Martin the Charitable, have you been able to identify during your stint as an ad hoc psychologist exactly why you get pleasure from being an ***?

    oh, so all geeks are computer professionals. Sure. Then account for Harry Knowles.

    Bah...with your post count, we _know_ that you spend all of your time here. You should have read the thing four or five times by now.
    Now I have 4 pages to pick through when I get to work.
    Keep on whining, you internet geek. That'll just use up more adenosine triphosphate (damn, I just lost a phosphate group or two myself).

    It's to **** internet geeks like you off.

    Scott Adams is a pretty big geek, too.

    Ever notice how people who accuse others or being losers for spending too much time on message boards somehow find the time to match the people they complain about post for post?

    "And yet you have no real evidence of it. The most you can claim is that my post count is high. Considering that it averages out to less than three posts a day, I'm not sure how you think that's a lot of time (unless you type and think with the speed a sloth)."

    Considering the average person posts less than once a day, an average of almost three per day doesn't look so good. Add to that your support of Yorick's initial stance and you certainly aren't helping your case any.

    "Actually, I wouldn't even call it a decent amount. Far be it from me to deprive anyone of whatever delusions they wish to believe. Besides, why exactly should you care about it?"

    So if you hardly spend any of your work time on the message boards, the majority of the large amount of time you do spend on them comes from your personal time. This is in direct contradiction to your previous statement about being paid everytime you are on these boards, which is your supposed reason for spending as much time as you do on the boards.

    "But, to get started: Martin the Charitable, have you been able to identify during your stint as an ad hoc psychologist exactly why you get pleasure from being an ***?"

    Because its quite funny how mad someone can get from improper use of quotations on a message board. An unexpected bonus, however, is when this person's fellow internet geek friends spring to his defense and instead end up demonstrating just how much of an internet geek they are as well ("Damnit to hell! Someone needs to email me when these things get going. Now I have 4 pages to pick through when I get to work.)

    "oh, so all geeks are computer professionals. Sure."

    This response was even more predictable than the first one. No, not all geeks are computer professionals although its no secret the large number of internet geeks that are in the computer industry. This is why I said "MORE the opposite, not (EXACTLY) THE opposite" While the fact that Toby is a computer professional does not automatically make him a geek alone, it certainly doesn't help his cause when combined with the previous evidence presented above.

    I'll be honest, I've spent quite a bit of time on the computer the past few days and am going to be spending even more the next couple. What the difference is, however, is that I post when I am taking a short break from typing a research paper and creating the accompanying presentation I am preparing. If I were not writing the research paper and creating the presentation and thus the increased computer time, the thread would certainly not be as long as it is now. Sorry to sink your theory...

    Have I denied being an 'internet geek'? Do I give a rat's ***? You're the 'psychologist,' you tell me, and since you're the 'lawyer' here as well, sue me for it. But let's get back into the problems you haven't addressed yet. Why do you find it funny how mad someone can get from your being an *** - because that's the real issue here. You admit to garnering pleasure by being a ***** while touting how incredibly intelligent and charitable you are - an intelligence and charity you don't seem to be able to muster when spewing your rank personality throughout the internet.

    "Have I denied being an 'internet geek'? Do I give a rat's ***?"

    I like you, you know what you are and don't care. Maybe Toby and Yorick could learn a little from you.

    "But let's get back into the problems you haven't addressed yet. Why do you find it funny how mad someone can get from your being an *** - because that's the real issue here. You admit to garnering pleasure by being a ***** while touting how incredibly intelligent and charitable you are."

    Sorry, it probably is wrong of me to pick on internet geeks and subsequently take psychological advantage of them but its just so funny to see them get pissed off over something so trivial. That's about all I can say concerning that matter.

    Making people feel pissed of and enjoying that sounds a bit juvenile and sadistic to me.....

    Can we all please stop, get it over with and act 'normal' again?

    Allow me to lay it out as clearly as possible: it's not the misuse of quotes - it's the inconsiderate attitude. Common courtesy isn't about saving someone a few molecules. And the problem wasn't having to scroll an extra page - it was trying to figure out wtf you were responding to from that extra page. Again, I don't give a rat's ***. Your post didn't bother me because, frankly, it wasn't worth my time/effort (mentally - that's another fallacy you tried bringing to the table: the assumption that all effort must be physical) trying to organize your post for you.

    BTW, as much as I can 'know' either Toby or Yorick, I'd bet two bits & a bottle of **** you didn't **** either of them off. But you might save yourself the bother of trying to argue the point because I'm not about the speak for the either of them - just as they don't attempt to speak for me. Trying to tell someone else how they 'must' feel is a great way to lose an argument and look like an *****.

    "Allow me to lay it out as clearly as possible: it's not the misuse of quotes - it's the inconsiderate attitude. "

    That may be what's bothering you now, but it certainly wasn't the root of this thread.

    "Common courtesy isn't about saving someone a few molecules. And the problem wasn't having to scroll an extra page - it was trying to figure out wtf you were responding to from that extra page."

    First of all, that was not the problem because if it was, Yorick and/or Toby would have brought it up a long time ago. Second, if you can't figure out what I was responding to in my post that started this thread, you need to learn basic reading comprehension.

    "Again, I don't give a rat's ***. Your post didn't bother me because, frankly, it wasn't worth my time/effort (mentally - that's another fallacy you tried bringing to the table: the assumption that all effort must be physical) trying to organize your post for you."

    And I don't really care that you don't give a "rat's ***" either. This thread was never about you. It never surprises me, though, how geeks manage to rally around each other (and yes, I know, you don't give a "rat's ***"...).

    "BTW, as much as I can 'know' either Toby or Yorick, I'd bet two bits & a bottle of **** you didn't **** either of them off. But you might save yourself the bother of trying to argue the point because I'm not about the speak for the either of them - just as they don't attempt to speak for me. Trying to tell someone else how they 'must' feel is a great way to lose an argument and look like an *****."

    I don't have to prove anything. Their constant responses to my posts are more than enough proof of my effect on them.

    "OK, enough, discussion closed! back to the topic.
    If you can't resist it and keep on this way I'll close the thread... "

    please do...

    Add to that your support of Yorick's initial stance and you certainly aren't helping your case any.
    Add to that your lack of comprehension that I didn't necessarily support Yorick's initial stance (which you probably still don't understand), and we've got a recipe for your delusion of a case that never existed.
    So if you hardly spend any of your work time on the message boards, the majority of the large amount of time you do spend on them comes from your personal time.
    Nope, sorry. I haven't gotten onto this board from home since the mail server maintenance I did Sunday.
    This is in direct contradiction to your previous statement about being paid everytime you are on these boards, which is your supposed reason for spending as much time as you do on the boards.
    If you say so, Pee Wee.
