In ATMB, Polerius took the time and effort to write a greasemonkey script allowing users to see custom avatars for Dopers.
A nice idea and certainly took some work.
Bosda, douche that he is, took the initiative to post
Bosda, it means nothing to you because you’re an idiot. You revel in your ignorance like a pig wallows in it’s own filth.
Given that you don’t know the difference between an IP address and ICQ, no one would expect you to know about this.
Given that every time someone tries to educate you about the gross computer illiteracy you post about, you simply ignore any meaningful responses, you may take comfort in the fact that probably no-one cares if you understand this and most likely, any attempt to explain it to you would be like trying to train a jackass to sing.
That’s not the problem though. The problem is that you’re more self-centered than a gyroscope. Why should Polerius even bother to explain it to you, given that you’re incapable of learning. From “How do I get a bank loan?” part 1 and part 2 (where you ignored all relevant advice) to “Do I have bedbugs?” (where you ignored all relevant advice) to the above “What’s Firefox’s ICQ address?” thread, to bitching about how someone who tries to help you is wrong (when he’s giving you a exceptional and relevant tool to help you diagnose your computer, you’re an idiot and an self-absorbed ineducable one.
Why don’t you simply stay out of threads you don’t understand. Granted, that won’t leave you many to read but that’s the price of arrogant, obnoxious stupidity.
Now go try to housebreak yourself until you’re fit to deal with normal people you asshole.
“Greasemonkey script to add your own SDMB avatars” is an interesting thread title that many people would open because they would like to see avatars. They open the thread and see something incomprehensible.
It’s like Fenris opening a thread titled “Escaped convicts armed and dangerous in Fenris’ neighborhood” and seeing that it is written entirely in Japanese or Arabic. When **Fenris ** posts “What’s this all about? I can’t read this language” and the OP says:
The difference is that if I thought it was important/interesting enough to follow up on, I’d simply say “I don’t understand what you’re saying. Could you this to me in English rather than Aarabic/Japanese, please?”, not “All of this means nothing to me” followed up by a multi-point critique of the OP rather than a simple polite request. Note that Skald approached the OP civilly and got an informative response. A poster has no obligation to make his post comprehensible to the Lowest Common Bosdenominator.
(And even if he did, it’s pretty much a given that it wouldn’t do any good since Bosda never actually follows the advice he’s given*)
*This is hyperbole. I’m sure that someone can find some thread where he followed someone’s advice to a good result without getting snotty about it. If so, I don’t care. The hyperbole stands.
No, it’s like opening a thread titled “Japanese article about escaped convicts armed and dangerous in Fenris’ neighborhood” and seeing that the article is written entirely in Japanese, then posting “This is in Japanese.”
I agree it wasn’t a masterpiece of technical writing. However the effort Polerius obviously spent writing the script would dictate that someone interested in this script should a polite request for clarification and/or more info, rather than an obnoxious self-centered comment followed by a list of flaws with the OP (that were also centered around Bosda)
[size]Yes. That would have been a much better title.[/size]
Try this one (There were no stone cities in the New World before Columbus and Native Americans were just savages anyway)
This one (about veterans of the Iraq war "Because I know, beyond any possible doubt, that the mercenaries doing these things shall one day return to the United States, & be unable to put aside the violence in their souls? That they shall likely turn to crime, as other soldiers who could not adapt have done, after other wars, & unleash the same violence on our streets that they have comitted in Iraq? ")
I don’t think he’s mentally handicapped. I know that he’s obnoxious, willfully ignorant and determined to remain so.
I can’t understand how people can believe that Indians were all nomadic hunter-gatherers, when every kindergardener learns that the Indians saved the Pilgrims from starvation by teaching them how to grow corn. How the fuck did they teach the Pilgrims to grow corn if they were hunter-gatherers?
