Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

Member since:

I'm getting annoyed not because of people misreading - shit happens with language - but because of how some people choose to express it. Instead of being constructive, like WereCat and a few others, we get people attacking me personally and OSNews as a whole merely because of a language-related misunderstanding.

THAT pisses me off. OSNews is not a one-way street where I just have to sit and be pretty, smile, and accept whatever verbal abuse is being flung my or OSNews' way.

Remember how I said you're condescending and being dickish. You're doing it again. I can't believe you edited the post to include such childish comments. That's shameful and unprofessional. It's been five years since I started reading OSNews daily but I can't come back after seeing how poorly you reacted to a little criticism. No one called you names, yet you chose to attack a commenter's intelligence. The OP was an obvious troll and you should've known better. Most other commenters simply pointed out that they were confused as well. One person seemed like they hadn't read a blog before. The closest I got was saying that you write casually and that's only because you do. This isn't like a large newspaper where style guides have to be adhered to. You write about your anecdotal experiences and personal opinions on (often politicized) matters. I mean, after all, it's a blog. Anyways, I have yet to see any "verbal abuse". Despite that, you've all but called anyone who was confused by the post lazy, ignorant and possibly stupid. It's honestly a bit shocking to see such a obviously emotional response come from someone who has been blogging consistently for what, seven years now? I think you need to step back and calm down before you start getting into it with commenters.
