Editorial Holier-than-thou, an adjective, meaning "marked by an air of superior piety or morality". Everybody has moments in their life where they get into a "holier-than-thou" attitude, and I think Steve Jobs' open letter regarding Adobe, and Flash in particular, really fits the bill. There are three specific points I want to address to illustrate just how holier-than-thou, hypocritical, and misleading this letter really is.

"the scary thing with Apple is that so many people actually eat this marketing up as fact.

No, what is scary is to always see a small author like you be a know-it-all and think that you are always true.

I rarely agree with Thom, I think he probably knows that… but he speaks sense, this is pure marketing, it’s lunk from the homepage ffs.

You are eating up the marketing, are you not?

What do you mean ?

So you like Flash, then YOU are eating Adobe's marketing ...

I have the freedom to dislike flash even if Apple do so. I am tired of this bullshit.

Maybe you should start arguing against what Thom actually said in this article. Aren't these points valid? Why not? And If they are valid, why does Jobs write so much sh*t? Because it's marketing.
