The humor lies in you saying exactly how you feel, and the incongruity of hpuxrac acting as though you hadn't. It's not particularly picking on you, it is just pointing out that you are stating strong opinions that not everyone may share, so it may appear pompous, hopefully pointed out in a manner so that you see it and laugh along with us, whoever us is. If you played along, perhaps some of us would be entertained by the Schadenfreude of Oracle-L, if any. Given your expressed feelings, I'd expect you'd like that. I don't feel quite so strongly, I find some interesting stuff over there, but I share some of your feelings. This is our livelihood, we're allowed to feel strongly about people being idiots about it. This is usenet, we can flame and move on to the next flame if we choose.

Don't choke on your popcorn Noons :-)
