    In a fit of wierdness, I just spent some time reading the forum at MacsSuck.com just to see what some anti-apple folks think and do.

    Yes, I know there are a lot more Macs fans than there are PC fans. By "Fans" I mean folks like us who will evangelize, and attempt to inform the other side, if not outright try to switch them.

    As of my reading a few minutes ago, they have only 557 posts (earliest on seems to be from January), and it's some pretty funny stuff.

    It's an excellent illustration on the difference in attitude of the Mac users and the PC users. Might be good for a term paper for somebody.

    Some observations:
    There are a lot more PC users out there than Mac users (some are both :D ) - it's interesting that they don't have more to say. They're points are very dry - if not completely wrong.

    These guys seem tired in their arguments - we seem to never have enough to say.

    I was tempted to say "Hey, let's get evil and kill 'em with a post-blitz" but logic overrulled. That's presicely what we shouldn't do - because we'd confirm the misconception of being zealots. I didn't even sign up, let them think what they will - they are the tired, and few.

    Oh, well, I found it entertaining, so I though I'd post it for y'all.

    Yeah, they wouldn't want to pull a Microsoft and host a UNIX (OS X) bashing site on a UNIX box would they.

    You reap what you sow...

    Thanks for the link. I got a chuckle as to how pathetic most of their threads are. Oh well, whatever floats your boat.

    Patrick, you're right in not responding. It really isn't worth your time or energy. Just leave 'em on the corner where they won't harm anyone except themselves.

    Mac vs. PC flamewars are always good for a laugh. I try to stay out of them because they seem to always be between 14 year olds who don't know a damn thing about either system (or 24 year olds who don't know a damn thing about either system)

    "wierdness"

    just kidding, man. yeah, the site was pretty amusing. not worth the effort of "fighting" them. there's no reasoning with them. it's like trying to teach something complicated to a baby...

    A trade-off for less ads :(

    Ok I had to point this out:
    Notice how there is macssuck.com but not pcssuck.com? It's because PC users are negative, and Mac users are positive (I guess all those kernal panics can really drive a person to the edge). Clearly, Mac users are superior to PC users. We win! Yay!
