I think what we're trying to encourage is sensitivity and rationality when posting (or constructing signatures or choosing avatars) about topics on which there could be considerable, strongly felt disagreement (IE vs. Firefox), or, in other words, those that are potentially controversial.

This is what empressmom has said regarding political debates.

The other thread was shut down because there was flaming going on.
Just think before you post - Will this be highly offensive to other people?
Directly blasting the country is pretty offensive, whereas just pointing out "hey well look what I was reading about" or such can be tolerated, as you are just showing something that others may not have known.

Understand?

.... Macs suck

Agreed. ^_^


Haha, I will agree too, but we must respect those peoples opinions on buying overpriced bad computers.
No they don't. I don't have a mac(maybe I get around to building a hackintosh one day) cause they cost to much. If you never used one how could you say they suck, they prices do. Everybody is just trying to copy apple.
And underneath it all, all OS's are the same.

I have used one before. There are both Macs and Dells in the computer lab I work at.

I am just not a fan of the Macs.


I also had to use one for an English class I took. Granted there were some things that I liked, it's still not for me.


I am also not a fan of Apple in general. Hate the Ipod - much rather my Zune.



Remember this thread was started about Patriotism.

Apples aren't worth the money. For the price of a basic Mac, you could get an upgraded PC. Unless you're technologically-ignorant, there is no reason to get a Mac.

We're on the 2nd page and still haven't made a comment about patriotism  :lol:

And why do you feel that way junk, you stupid Canadian?

No offense to other Canadians.


Let's get back to the original topic please.
If someone wants to discuss the different types of computers, they are welcome to a new thread.
