When I first approached Red Faction at levels4you.com, RF was known as a PC based game - due to the fact that modifying it on the Mac was basicly overlooked and way underdocumented. Yes, I was flamed for being a Mac user, but I didn't run away. With grace and grenades I perservered and won acceptance.

Not only am I a member of L4Y, now I am on staff.

The lesson is, if you are cool, calm and collected in response to the rabid frothings of the uninformed - you will win.  :happy:

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.
SNAP!!! Nice post there Archon. :thumbsup:

Go Hapu Hanu!!!

Let me get this straight. How long have we [mac users] had one click mouses and been able to use [normal] two click mouses? I know what you said there Zapranoth, but I just wanted to make sure of this fact.

By the way Milbop, you meant to say 'dine', not 'dien'. ;)

Over the years this stuff has decreased dramatically. You used to get these imbeciles trolling on mac dedicated forums (macworld, macaddict, etc...) but now they are no where to be seen. The only places I can find them reliably are places like slashdot or b.net (it is easy on b.net, most of the people who post there have had a lobotomy). You can't reason with them because either a) they're just trolls and trying to get a rise out of you or b) they're honestly completely stupid and no amount of reason will defeat their grade school mentality.

Anyway, by ignore just don't reply to them. You can read the junk and chuckle (if you're into that kind of thing). Ignoring them is why they left the mac centric sites.

Most of them are unfamiliar with OS X or two button Mac mouses too. Their concerns seem to be based on Macs from ten years ago.

Come on IMG, let's "educate" them. *Picks up Spartan spear*

Oh, and my theory as to why their numbers decrease each year is because they fail to attract mates.

Milbop is probably right, if enough of us poured onto their servers like an endless swarming line of army ants, devouring every idiotic thing in our path, forming human bridges across information gaps and bivouacking in gigantic tangled heaps; we just might be able to educate the pathetic drooling smacktards and bring about a new age of enlightened beings, civil rest, and a society based on a doctrine of truth and understanding.  Then because nobody will lock their doors anymore, we can slit their throats in their sleep.

The thing that gets me is that if they were real geeks, they would see that Mac OSX is a better OS. Its not just about the shininess.

no if they were real geeks, then theyd be running linux.

of course, seeing as theyre windows geeks theyve not actually moved on from starcraft yet, and are actually considering immigrating to korea to get some method acting style experience of playing SC.
if they have moved on, then its to World of Warcraft, where they start a new character every fortnight and max it out in all respects and then start all over.

Instead of land reform, we shall have OS reform and instead of the cultural revolution, we shall have the technological revolution.
