    as someone has already pointed out, the guy does not know how to write a 'good' sentence. Furthermore, the guy is from San Francisco. case closed.

    What, pray tell, does the fact that the article appeared in an SF paper have to do with anything?

    I was going to make some remarks about the article but this back and forth on the San Francisco thing is more amusing. I was reading all these and it didn't once occur to me that he was saying the guy was gay. I usually equate San Franciscans with being very Liberal. The guy is probably just conservative.

    I feel for any person who is put down for a belief or way of life. But people who just assume things like the guy is saying he is gay...i mean...c'mon. Grow up.

    wow the conclusions people jump to. Now tazo is a homophobe and a sanfran basher! oh no! What I meant is that news paper is a historically liberal newspaper, with a liberal viewpoint expressed the majority of the time on various events. To deduce that by my comment I mean the guy was a homosexual and is therefore ripe for the jokes, is a lie and am offended by such a low blow. I do not want to throw this thread off, although it is your people's decision to perpetuate it.
    All I was trying to do is to make a joke out of the fact that historically, San Francisco is an extremely liberal city. I would know, I lived there for just over a year.

    And for the record, I do not hate homosexuals. Nor San Francisco.

    Ok I did not see your post when i was posting my reply, maybe you did while I was posting, anywho Jadariv, you have me perfect to to the t. I consider myself generally conservative, although I feel differently then my conservative peers on some issues (such as cloning, patriot act, and some privacy laws). Anyway, I did not mean that the guy must be gay since he lived in San Francisco and I am glad that someone on this board was able to look to the comment and read it for what it was worth. Thx.

    Then you should have said that from the beginning. You said "Furthermore, the guy is from San Francisco. case closed." NOT "Furthermore, the guy is from a liberal newspaper. case closed."

    There's a big difference.

    no problem. Btw I hope i did not say that you yourself did jump to conclusions, I was just commenting on people's comments like ***** (name put in asterisks so as to not offend anyone). Anyway I do not want to cause this thread to go off on any more of a tangent.

    Ok, I am sorry. :eek: I was under the now erroneous assumption that people knew that San Francisco is a liberal city. Sorry.

    I agree lets get this back on topic.


    So what is everyone's opinion on this article? I disagree with it. What about you?

    Your only erroneous assumption is that everyone from SF is a liberal. :rolleyes:

    Using that as the reason for discounting the article is about as valid as the writer's using corporate greed to blame Apple for the iTMS system.

    Only if it is also erroneous to assume that people in jail have been charged with a crime.

    I really do not want to get into this but ya just keep reeling me back in.

    So, then what the hell is this? http://www.sfgop.org/

    Of course you don't want to get into it; you're wrong.

    I will be more mature and neglect to comment on that Rower_CPU

    I don't know why you posted a link to that website; I consider myself an independent conservative, not a republican-and trust me there is a difference.

    And I never insinuated that the San Francisco area is entirely devoid of any non-liberal representation. I merely stated that a city with a democrat as a mayor, in a state that historically votes democrat.

    Why have you taken this upon yourself Rower? Your profile says you live in San Diego.

    tazo-
    I'm simply pointing out that your statement was prejudicial and based on stereotype. You cannot assume that someone is "liberal" or "conservative" based on their location in the US.

    You tried to get away with pigeonholing the author and several people called you on it. Retract the statement and move on.

    Retract what statement? I already admitted my error in my original posting, and I already apologized.

    People make all kinds of assumptions on a topic based on stereotypes and past biases, to believe otherwise is nonsense.

    Perpetuating stereotypes is wrong, and purporting them to be fact is nonsense.

    You never apologized.

    I think the iTMS will be great for Apple and the recording industry in general.

    Apple is doing a great job balancing the concerns of the RIAA with getting music into consumers' hands.

    Well, it's not a stereotype because there is one liberal in San Francisco.
