I think the evaluation period is 45 days, so you might have cause to complain about being short-changed.

AVGN - or just incapable of responding in a mature manner when something you post is challenged?


Did you not read the rest of my post? Also, I don't remember exact details, so if it is 45 days, I'm probably mistaken.
Yet again, I edit a post and rage. Did you seriously not take time out of your FUCKING day just to read the rest of the FUCKING post?! I clearly responded in a mature way, and corrected him where correction was needed! He quite clearly didn't understand my point that it's programmed perfectly FUCKING fine, but they just can't market worth JACK FUCKING SHIT! I showed him the fact that I can scientifically show that it's reliable, and that's why I rely on it, though that's completely FUCKING moot because he didn't understand the FUCKING point of my original statement!

You've acted like an ass to people trying to help you in two threads now. Good going, buddy.


I've only been an ass to people who are dumb. Plus, I was only an ass to people who didn't directly help me. I also request this other example of me being an ass.

Why get this mad over topics that really aren't that important?

I get mad at dumb people, no matter the topic. Whether it be creationists or people who don't know the difference between a GPU and a CPU, I will still get mad at them.

Be more selective over who/what you get mad at. Especially try to avoid getting mad at people who've been civil and helpful towards you. Otherwise you'll perpetually come across like that screaming German kid, impassioned with mouth-frothing fury over the slightest provocation. No one wants to know someone like that.

Yes, I did read the FUCKING rest of your FUCKING post you little obnoxious little DIPSHIT, and it appears I was wrong about the 45 days - that's WinZip' evaluation period. Like a lot of shareware utilities, WinRAR doesn't simply die at the end of its trial period, it just nags the user in the hope they'll register just to make it stop, get over it or find some other minutae in your life to obsess over.

I'm talking about the bloke I was responding to and his misunderstanding of the fact that I wasn't pointing out the programmer's incompetence when it comes to programming, but in marketing, quit bringing this into other topics, and again, I do NOT have a problem with the nagware. Let me say this one more time. The original purpose of this post was to ask a simple question, and at NO point did it become me whining about the nagware. I am fine with the trial and the way of attempting to make people buy the product, no matter how idiotic it is from seller's viewpoint, I like it from the consumer's viewpoint. Capisce?

mind if ya tone that down a bit? not everyone knows what a computer consists of and not everyone believes in evolution, and certainly not everyone is going to appreciate being bombarded by the F-bomb as often as you've done here. there's worse things to be upset over.

I know that, but there's simply a part of almost every person's id which can't handle people which are different, and in my case, it's purely intellectually oriented, so it's quite difficult to control my urge to curse people out when they don't understand computers or accept the scientific theories which I do.

I actually quickly looked through my posts and didn't find a post which was particularly, explicitly assish. Can you seriously not give an example?

How about here to LordHavoc, here to kristus and here to Gez.

PROTIP - stop being an ass, you won't last long in the forums with that attitude. Capisce?

I think ATK initially became very defensive over exp(x)'s allegation that he was entitled, since it probably seemed to him like it came completely out of left field. From there, it just escalated, as he probably felt like he had to defend himself against most of the people in the thread.

I can certainly understand why others are responding to him the way they are, but I can also understand his reaction as well.

Alek, take what I'm saying here in the most objective, impersonal way possible: cool down with the excessive swearing and all-caps typing. There's no reason to ever get this heated over something someone said on an internet forum, unless the person in question was posting naked pics of your mom. People will say provocative stuff that seems unwarranted, or that seems to come out of nowhere, and the best you can do is to remain calm and collected, and type a well thought-out response. It will garner a lot more respect than responding with flustered rage.

And no, just because you happened to lose your cool here doesn't mean it's all over for you on this forum, or whatever it was you were saying. Everyone says shit they regret, both online and off. I've done it myself. Just cut your losses, move on, and learn from your mistakes. Good day.

The first example, I wasn't deliberately assish, and I actually don't really see how one could be offended by that, the second example, I will admit that I actually was sort of assish, and the third was just me joking, though I can frankly see how one could be offended by that.

This also pretty much explains why I was so pissed.
