    With gentle affection for some of my fellow MR users... no offence intended, just a bit of fun ;)

    Here’s to the crazy ones.

    The fanboys.
    The whiners.
    The students.
    The round pegs in the square holes.
    The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of buying products you can't easily hack.
    And they have no respect for iPhone firmware updates. You can flame them, laugh at them, multi-quote them,
    disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
    About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
    Because they create hundreds of threads on MacRumors every day telling you how hard done by they are.

    They whinge. They moan. They complain.
    They install multiple copies of OSX from one licence. They torrent. They moan about educational price discounts on world-class software.
    They push their post count skywards.

    Maybe they have to be crazy.
    How else can you expect to get something for nothing?
    Or buy an outdated product two days before a new one comes out?
    Or gaze at pictures of the fabled xMac and tell Apple they're daft for not making it?
    These kinds of people are tools.

    While some see them as the crazy ones,
    we see noobs.
    Because the people who are crazy enough to think
    they can demand a refund because of a product price drop, are the ones who do.

    "He had a deep, booming voice my lord!"

    "So, a bit like mine then?"

    "No, my lord... a deep, booming voice."

    It's a sir - thanks both for the kind words! :D
