I point out where the comment was off-topic and move on

You're not supposed to pick parts of other's posts and mod them down just because that single part is off-topic. Talking about FireFox, current release or older ones, is very much on-topic. The following quote is very much off-topic but should I nitpick about that and mod you down because of that?

Having looked at your note, I cannot help but giggle that you are using Vista...perhaps you should start with using an OS with space for applications.

Besides, no matter what OS one uses doesn't make a difference as to how much FireFox uses memory. If you use Linux then fine, have fun, but that doesn't give you any right to belittle others' opinions nor does it mean you're always right. Oh, and picking on someone just for using Vista is quite childish IMHO. It's a personal choice after all, and there might be f.ex. some apps which he needs and which don't work under Linux..And Linux still sucks for gaming :/

And if that is not a personal attack, I don't know what is. Cyclops, Linux has enough going for it that we don't have to resort to calling users of other OSes "retards", which you have been doing a good bit recently. We can point to the strength of our platform. We can even make reasoned criticisms of other platforms. But please, don't resort to name-calling. It makes us all look bad. People label us based upon such childish behavior by a few well meaning but overenthusiastic, advocates.

No low level intimidation (as you like to accuse me of) involved. Just good, common sense, advice about effective advocacy.

It was a troll comment, and disgusting from someone who hadn't even tried the product.

If he can post the memory usage of FireFox on his computer then doesn't it mean he has tried/used it? Umm.. -.-

His made a comment about thrashing, having seen what is running, and looked at my 5 year old machine coping very nicely. I can only conclude his problem is Vista.

AFAIK FireFox uses more or less the same amount of memory no matter which OS you use so Vista has nothing to do with that. And according to FireFox bugzilla they sure have a big problem with FF3 leaking huge amounts of memory..Just look at some earlier posts for the link.

My comments are nothing to do with Microsoft, but more about him being a retard,

That is a direct insult and against the site rules. As such,you deserve to be modded down. Watch your language..
