D'yall come with subtitles

Now, I realize that this is a forum for people who know, understand and work/program at the most basic to complex levels.

But just for a laugh,.. I got here via links to an interesting article(s). I use the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it just updated itself. So, I wanted to read up on the changes.

When I read through your comments, I had to laugh: As a end-user who could barely program my multifunction remote control, I found myself reading all of the initials and Abbreviations and wondering: Are there any sub-titles so schmuck like me can understand anything written here?!?!?

Really though, keep doing the stuff you love to do. We end users do appreciate the thought and efforts that go into making all my gizmos work.

Sorry for the long post. Have a great Monday.

Most of the comments here are one or multiple of the following:
1) An insightful/informative post
2) Troll post
3) A post by someone who doesn't know what he is talking about but is trying his best to appear smart
4) A completely off-topic post
5) A post about politics
6) not worth reading and therefore modded down
7) not worth reading yet still modded up
8) worth reading and therefore modded up
9) worth reading and yet still modded down
10) funny
11) definitely not funny
12) can only be understood by other geeks
13) can not be understood even by other geeks
14) can no longer be understood by the commenter himself the next day

Basically, most comments are either #2, #3 or #4 and thus you'd be wasting your time reading the subtitles anyways, and while there are a few that qualify as #1 they're always #12, #13 or #14 and therefore subtitles still wouldn't help you. There are some #10 #2s here every now and then, but they still #12. With the #6,#7, #8 and #9 an outsider like yourself won't know what to read and what not to read, so you'd still be wasting your time.

As such I must conclude that subtitling wouldn't work and would most likely just confuse you outsiders even more. Now, there ARE steps you can take to eventually develop the needed cognitive skills to follow the discussion here and I shall list these steps below:

To become one of us and therefore be able to follow our discussions one day you must fulfill atleast 6 of the following:
1) drink lots of soda/energy drinks
2) acquire reasonable amounts of body mass, then triple that amount and concentrate it around your waist
3) lose 90% of your body mass so that when you stand against a bright light people can see your skeleton shine through
4) wear non-hipster glasses
5) develop large amounts of pimples
6) clean yourself bi-monthly
7) exercise your wrist(s) atleast 3 times a day. Must be done in front of a computer
8) familiarize yourself with all the current Internet-memes
9) develop an unhealthy relationship with one or another computer-related brand name or phenomenon

If you still do not seem to succeed it might be because you're not mentally disturbed enough, and for that the most effective cure is browsing 4chan forums on a daily basis for a month. Looking for terms like e.g. "clop-clop" will certainly lead to excellent results in no time.

I hope this post was helpful!
