The interchange went like this:
- Person A posted about their experiences on a farm, used an industry jargon term “discer”
- Person B challenged person A that no one who had really worked on a farm would call it a “discer” rather than a “disc”
- Person A responded with the sarcastic barrage I linked to above.
For those not familiar with Slashdot, you may have to lower the default “quality threshold” using the sliders at the top to see the “Person B” response.
