Even though I spend way too much time on them I really do not like computers. I firmly believe that a lot of the problems our society faces today can be traced back to the personal computer and world wide access to just about everything. No I am not going to go into details on what I mean.

What prompted this little rant you may ask. I just spent about 20 minutes drafting a well thought out rational, polite (at least I think it was well thought out rational and polite) response to the Phil Robertson thread. All of a sudden boom, I get some sort of stupid RTS time out error BS garbage that loses everything. This is why I have no solid objects around my computer. Replacing monitors is expensive.

You guys are great and all and I do enjoy the discussions but no offense, if I didn't know you existed I don't think my life would be any less fulfilled. Well maybe a little less but I wouldn't know so it wouldn't matter.

Its your loss though. The worlds loss actually. I know my insight would have been an eye opener for everyone. It may have even provided the impetus for both sides coming together on this issue and forging new ground toward everlasting world peace and harmony. As it is I am so pissed I can't bring myself to re type it all. So keep that in mind when we are all foraging for survival in the nuclear winter that could have been prevented simply by having a computer that didn't screw up. You can thank Bill Gates now.

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone
I fully respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

I hope you find a way to redo your post. I've had either the same or something similar happen - a white screen with a lot of computer words come on - and just clicking the back arrow returns me to the screen I'm writing on.

Thank you for the civility and effort - even if you probably were gonna come down on the wrong side of the issue hahahaha.

I think you would have been surprised although I did lay into you a little bit. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

I refuse to get a smart phone no matter how cheap and/or recommended they are to me because I already spend too much time on my computer and the internet. I don't want to be able to access it at all times.

Probably not what you're thinking of but I think sorta see where you're going with your post.
