I was having quite a pleasant day until a PC user posted an undiplomatic Mac-dissing thesis on a mailing list while proclaiming he was "not trying to start a war." Bullshit. One Mac user responded with a friendly joke, another responded with pity for his bad Mac experiences, and a third responded with a well-written, well-reasoned, civilized essay dismantling his arguments. Said PC user and friend subsequently complained about the lack of passion from the Mac community.
Wait, I thought he wasn't trying to pick a fight.
A few hours later, digg funneled me to a blog about why someone ditched his Mac for Linux. Notice that his main complaint is the incivility and ungratefulness of the Mac community.
We just can't win, can we?
