Today i check some forum post of Stracraft section on Battle.Net and i see a lot of rage and hate for Macs from stupid Pc users.... i see post like these:

Quote

it would be great if blizzard joins with us side by side in the fight against macs, makes products incompatible and help in our boycott to teach mac that 1000$Comp+Shiny white surfaces=NOT 2000$

Quote

This means you are a retard for getting a mac and blizzard will exploit all your stupidity to get more money from you.


Many more on the forums..... damn i think i am the only ex pc relsser/user who discover Mac are much more better without going crazy and become a Pc zealot.

its best not to argue with them and just ignore them. Some neanderthals just cant get their heads around an OS they havent been weaned on, or thats actually, you know.... good.

They're just out to get a rise out of you (guess they didn't satisfy their cravings in
grade school)... I meet the same people everywhere else too.

I would advocate to follow teh Battle Cat's advice. Let them froth in their own madness.

However, if you do respond to their uninformed ravings be sure to use a graphic like this one:

It's pretty much impossible for any Mac-related article to show up anywhere without at least a few 'mac sux lol' comments/posts showing up. But I prefer the out-and-out haters to yet another boring post from some genius that has seen right through Apple's facade and realized they sell things because of marketing! (or somesuch.) Thank you, Captain Obvious, for that insightful point which has never been made before you graced the subject with your mighty brain.  At least the frothing zealolts are amusing to read.

Mind you, the people that feel they have to jump in and defend the Mac when it's not really needed bug me too. I guess I just don't like zealots of either stripe.

Oh man, this one is awsome. I love it. I love the animated gifs. I love the devestating 'melty Mac OS pic'. I mean, how can you argue with the photoshop smudge tool? I love how there's even a misused apostrophe in the URL of that page.

I wanted to say something insightful to support the Mac, but you said I don't need to.

I wanted to say something trite to bash the Mac and support the PC, but you said those are a dime a dozen.  

So . . . I have no choice but to say that I agree . . .  with . . everybody.  :-)  I love my MacBook Pro, and I love my home-built PC.  I game on both, as well as on my X-Box 360.  

But no PS3.  THAT'S just crossing the line!  Ya gotta have standards confound it.

Imho ignoring isn't always the best thing, sometimes we need to reply... not continuing an endless arguing, but at least a single reply. These people think to be right in a forum where nobody  say otherwise.


ps: as always sorry for my english.

It's ironic that those guys are acting exactly like many people's conception of "whiny Mac fanboys" (cf. Marathon 2 on XBox 360).

Most of these anti-macboys are whining about the mouse, which we do, too.

How frickin' hard is it to get another mouse?  I've got a Kensington here myself... haven't kept an Apple mouse in years.  So who gives a rip?

It's just interesting how irrational it all is.    ie,

"I use heavy strings, tune low, play hard, and floor it.
Floor it.  That's technical talk."   - SRV

Whenever someone brings up the Apple mouse thing, I just ask them if they are using the mouse that came with their computer. The answer is always "No." Does it matter that the Dell mouse has two discreet buttons while the Apple mouse doesn't when you throw them out in favor of a better mouse?

I tend stay away from posting in "Mac-Hater" threads, but if a friend says Macs are expensive, I'll just show him the price of a Macbook Pro, then the price of a comparable laptop in terms of specs. The Macbook Pros are very competitively priced, and the design/feel of the machines is much better. Yes, Macbook Pros are expensive, but guess what? Good laptops tend to be expensive.

The iMac is a bit harder to compare because since they are desktops, they get compared to towers.

True, but how frickin' hard is it to just make a decent mouse with a second button? How hard would it be to split the trackpad button on the notebooks to add a second physical button there? These little design decisions do have a large effect on someone using the computer, and as much as I like Apple's stuff, they do have a tendency to sit on their flaws for a long time. A little criticism is a good thing - not that the spaz from a PC gaming forum is the place to go for it.

As a computer user, I look for a good stable operating system and compatiblity, so I stick with both windows a macintosh. But these anti-apple nerds or hardcore microsoft fanboys are really no different to lets just say a cow or a nintendrone. Rather a humen being is a apple/360 nazi or a diehard sony otaku, in the end they all lose.
