WTF!?! Where did you get that retarded opinion from.


The fact you were blatently missing every point I made and twisting my words around ... when you blatently knew what I meant ... it is a bit sad ... you stopped talking like an adult before me.

I've regularly commented on here that I happen to think Visual Studio is not only the best IDE out there, but the best thing MS have ever developed.


Oh right ... I am supposed to remember every user name and their general opinions. Really?

I mean has this discussion already sunk that low that now you're resorting to plucking complete bullshit out of thin air?


It wasn't really out of thin air. It was the fact that you seemed to miss the point completely ... it was almost as if you were doing it on purpose.

Sorry but I really can't be arsed to read the rest of your post because the opening statement alone is so absurd that I don't hold any hope of you posting sane comments after it.

/me gives up on this discussion


Do what you wish ... save me keystrokes.

You weren't even keeping on topic for fsck sake.
How is non-IT industries even relevant when talking about software development?
Seriously mate, listen to yourself.

... when you blatently knew what I meant

Yes I did and thus answered all your points directly. You then turned prima donna and accused me of being an anti-VS zealot. I mean seriously, was there any need for you to act like that?

... it is a bit sad ... you stopped talking like an adult before me.

YOU MADE PERSONAL COMMENTS ABOUT ME FIRST!!!

In fact, you opened this thread with a longish post to Kroc where your FIRST line called him "stupid" because he happened to have an opinion you differed with? So how was that a mature attitude?

I really can't believe I'm reading this. It's as if you're taking part in a whole other conversation to everyone else.


It wasn't really out of thin air.

Yes it was. You had no evidence to make such a retarded claim - which is why I reacted the way I had.

You're really not in a position to be making personal judgements about people - so just don't.

It was the fact that you seemed to miss the point completely ... it was almost as if you were doing it on purpose.

I got your points (and what little relevance many of the had) and addressed them directly.
**YOU** were the one missing the point. I suggest you go back and re-read this thread.

You seem to be echoing the same tired line that "I am a good developer so I am proof that developers can switch platforms".

Well nobody was disputing that good developers can do so (I've switched development platforms countless times myself). All I was stating is not every developer is as motived as yourself. A point you're far too narrowminded and self-absorbed to notice - in fact so much so that you were lead to making completely absurd personal judgements against myself based on zero information.

The most annoying thing of all - well second most annoying after the lies you've spread about me - is that you actually went on to agree with the point about how users like to stick with the platforms their familiar with. This point you raised was the whole basis of my comment - the point you repeatedly missed and then proceeded to insult me over. Yet you then raise the exact same argument as if it was your idea and then accuse me of ignoring your points.

Well in all my life I can honestly say this has been the most laboured discussion I've ever had with a so called professional developer (and notice how I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here that you might actually work in this field rather than just dismissing you like you had to us). However I can only hope your source code reads better than your failing attempts at English comprehension. ;)

You know what I just don't care anymore ... I am not arguing with someone who can't think laterally ... I sit next to some guy who can't.

Our conversations go like this

Him - "The Telephone Engineer needs to come into my house to test the line ... why does he need to come into my house?"

Me- "Because he needs to check the line and everything is working"

Him - "But the problem is up at the exchange/"

Me - "He doesn't know that and he has to check it all the way through"

Him - "But why does he have to go into house?"

Me - "So that he can check he done the job right"

Him - "???"

Me - "It is like me making a change to the web page, never checking it and deploying it and then going home at the weekend."

Him - "You are a fucking idiot you are comparing web pages to fixing a telephone line"

I then shake my head and go back to fixing the .NET 1.1 mess I have inherited.

This conversation reminds me very much of that.
