RE: OT: plot by "elitists" confirmed...

I have to say that I can't imagine what Mladen or Tim (or any other unix snob/elitist) would have to say about any technical problems I might have. The vast overwhelming preponderance of evidence, in my observation, is that they have never said anything of any interest or substance or relevance to windows people.

Like I said before, I would suggest that just like I delete 98% of Unix related posts because they are not relevant, the unix bigots/elitists and users simply ignore windows discussions that they have nothing constructive to add to, and keep their nose out of other people's business.

On the other hand, maybe Fatcity needs to split the list, and rename this one "oracle-l-for-unix-snobs", and others can go on their merry way.

As I have noted several times, the double standard here is peculiar, no one cares when some unix snob indulges in insulting windows people and DISRUPTING LEGITIMATE DISCUSSION THREADS, but as soon as protests of such unix snobbiness and elitism come up, all of the people that feel professionally invested in ---> elitist technocorporate social privilege <--- get upset that their "status quo" mentality is being challenged.
