I don't know what the hell that remark meant, I will take it as simply a tactic to demean my statement that I use Macs as well as Windows machines, both at home and at work in my business that deals with internet, and that based on that experience I have a certain amount of knowledge about which types of computers I have worked with that have ever been affected by malware or viruses.

And my original statement still stands and cannot be refuted since it is based on MY experience, which is: In MY experience, I have NEVER owned or seen a Mac that has been affected by malware or viruses, while I have seen MANY Windows machines either die or be rendered inoperable by malware and viruses. NONE of he Windows machines have been mine, all were my customers' machines. Nice try but it didn't work.

Actually it was a reference to the standard Apple Apologist debate tactic: when you can't form a real rebuttal, then deliberately misunderstand one of your opponent's points and use that as a springboard to a hand-waving "OMG are you really saying that _____" rant.

Hate to break it to you chuckles, but "anecdote" is not the singular form of the word "data". And even if your unsubstantiated personal anecdote weren't utterly useless, there's still the little matter of you being too obtuse to grasp the difference between the presence of good security and the mere absence of compromises. As an obvious Apple fanboy, I doubt you even realize there IS a difference.
