Yesterday I made a little comment on a story about Windows-powered gadgets and gizmos. It was just a funny (IMHO) little comment about the gadgets blue-screening.
I found the comment shortly got modded up to +5 funny as it was a reasonably early post. Eventually however, it was modded 'overrated' a few times and even 'troll' by one moderator... It ended up being at 0 (or -1 if you don't count the initial karma bonus). If you read the comment and replies you may be able to understand my concern.
As one of the repliers pointed out, it was just a JOKE. So many people seemed to take offence at it. I've used Windows for ages, and still do use XP every now and then. I can safely say I have gotten blue screens with it (not including hardware faults, usually bad drivers). I think the fact that bad drivers take the machine down IS worth making fun of.
These few vocal
If I'm going to get modded and replied to so harshly I don't see why I should bother posting anymore.
This site was way too script-kiddie infested when I joined. I can only imagine how good it was in its heyday. At least the news is still pretty good.
