In GQ dougie_monty asked a question about a money-scamming popup piece of malware:
I think **Collibri **is 100% in the wrong here.
It’s simply a matter of common English usage. See a scam, and think to yourself, how stupid you’d have to be to fall for such a transparent ploy. That is a generic You. It is It is obviously not directed at any particular person. It is not a remark that targets dougie_monty, or anyone else.
What’s more, it’s a hypothetical. A person *would *be stupid *if *they fell for it. And he notes that dougie_monty didn’t fall for it. Thus he is specifically excluding **dougie_monty **from the category of stupid people.
