I flamed you first, but you're still unassailable
Authored by: Lectrick on Oct 10, '07 09:00:32AM

Please don't take my initial flame (too) seriously. I just felt like there was a tone in your wording of "why can't everyone be as thoughtful as me". It happens, you probably didn't intend it. I COMPLETELY SUPPORT your macosxhints efforts however, and I am very glad that you are vigilant (militant?) about saving energy. I just had an issue with the wording of it. Perhaps it wouldn't have ideally taken place in a public forum... and I actually broke my own rule of "public praise, private criticism"...

I actually wish more people would be as thoughtful about it as you are and if your wording was the symptom of a latent outrage, perhaps I understand.

I think that everyone would love to use less energy, but not as many are ready to make some of the sacrifices (such as me, who relies heavily upon it).

I also, by the way, didn't entirely agree with the sympathetic reply to my comment which talked about "propaganda". I don't like it when people make things political, so that dude actually peeved me too, lol. No one can disagree that the side-effects of using energy are real, and whenever someone starts throwing around charged words like "agenda", my skin crawls.

So please take heart. I love macosxhints (and everyone who works on it by association), but I suppose we're a sensitive bunch ;)

In /dev/null, no one can hear you scream
