    Its true. But that means that if you are technical, and can talk to normal people without sounding like a douschebag, you are SO HOT right now.

    not my fault. when browsing using wap.offtopic.com it doesn't properly handle links.

    EDIT: there, i edited it and resaved it. link works now so you don't have to copy/paste.

    Noone can make you arrogant. It's your choice whether to talk down to someone or not.

    I do my best to be nice to people. I fail a lot though. I'm an irritable person without having to explain the simplest of things to morons.

    No, your social dysfunction combined with your petty control over largely meaningless things that most people just happen to be clueless about makes you arrogant.

    i agree. i started doing phone support for a mail order computer company way back in the day. i talked to the most untechnical people i could imagine and it really got me used to breaking things down into terms that non-technical people could understand. i also know that there are plenty of people who know a shitload more than me in different topics. so, as long as they are cool with me when discussing their shit, i'll be cool with them and not talk down to them.

    Yous can blame 'dumb users' all you want, but you're just hurting yourself by being arrogant.
