> oh no! an anecdote! better close your mind now

Another idiotic strawman argument.

Forgot whimsy doesn't play on HN - too many literal thinkers. Sorry, I'll refrain.

Jokes such as those are really bad for a good discussion. They serve to prove to people on your "side" (an idiotic notion, but I digress), how stupid the people on the other side are. I would downvote if I could.

Sorry again; I commented while in an excited emotional state. Though it embarrasses me how many times that give better karma than a reasoned paragraph putting forth a cogent argument.
