Just wondering- why would you come into a thread that has a good discussion going on
simply to interject- TWICE- that people are using the incorrect terminology? (Which I think is debatable, by the way. I’ve heard the term “spyware” used to describe network monitoring software, keystroke recorders, and the like)
Here’s what irks me: not that you feel the need to come into a thread and say: (regarding the OP asking what people would do about their SO using spyware on their computer)
Fine- whatever. But then, several people go on to address the OP and continue the discussion, ignoring Urban’s correction, and a day later he posts:
I mean, if you have something to contribute to the thread, fine- do so. But I think it’s really rude to come in and start arguing semantics out of the blue- twice, no less. Apparently people there aren’t concerned with using the “right” terminology. Or maybe you could just post your opinion and say “By the way- I think the correct terminology is ____, as spyware usually refers to _____”
In short, I have nothing against you personally- hell, I don’t even know you. But I find this sort of thing just as annoying as the people who have nothing to contribute to a thread but still have to interject spelling and grammar corrections. It’s rude.
