It wasn't an ad-hominem attack. Don't play the innocent victim. It was an argument.

You can either man-up and have a proper discussion with me about requirements engineering and elicitation ... which I complained about or you can claim the victim.

lucas_maximus,

This was a textbook Ad Hominem attack.

"Well we know you didn't study software engineering. Please go away and read a requirement engineering book please ... because you are a fucking moron if you think that I am wrong."

I won't hold any grudge over it, I figured you just got upset, we can get over it. But if this is seriously your defence for microsoft, "most customers don't know what they want", it's a weak argument IMHO. If you still want to stick with it, well then so be it, it's just an opinion.

Sorry it was basic software engineering. The customer doesn't know how to tell you what they actually want.

Thus the image before hand.
