    Responding to facts with insults and ad hominems just shows how devoid of substance your position, if indeed it can be called a position, really is.

    You might give some consideration to the fact that you're the only one here who seems to think that Macs are somehow magically impervious to infection. Perhaps that will clue you in that some of us actually do know what we're talking about when it comes to computer security, unlike you.

    So many stupid people in the world, and me with only two fists.

      Yawn. The usual content-less reaction to simple truth.

      I never expressed any ad hominem attack. I said you were cute. You know: puerile, childish and naive. Jejune, even. Not really an attack. But an accurate description of your attitude. Less defamation of character than definition of character.

      Then you threw up a straw man argument saying that I am: "the only one here who seems to think that Macs are somehow magically impervious to infection."

      I never said that, you did. I said they are seldom infected because the OS is superior to Windoze. This is the simple truth. You can make up as many pretty stories as you like about why Windoze is the greatest most wonderfullest OS ever in teh history of the outer limits of the whole entire everything. But it's not. Frankly, Windoze is crap. It always has been. Unless there's a huge shake up over at Microsloth it always will be.

      I don't need to be an "expert" in computer security to know that.

      (By the way, that whole "Microsloth" thing has been around for decades also, just like the "Windoze" thing. You probably haven't heard that one either, living in your protected Windoze bubble of inherent wonderfulness).

      Windoze exists because millions of Windoze-oriented IT departments owe their very existence to the utter crappiness of the OS. If it was any good, 50% of them would be out of work and all those highly-paid "managers" would have to give up their massive all-powerful fiefdoms. Nobody can bring down the work of a major corporation quite the way Windoze's designed-in suckiness can bring everything to a grinding halt. For days at a time. Sheesh.

      And yet people (of a type that shall remain nameless lest I suffer the baseless ad hominem attack of engaging in ad hominem attacks. Again) still think Windoze has some value or usefulness.

      Yuk.

      So many smart people in the world... with two fists. And you with only one nose. Quel dommage.
