Eli, wouldn't it be easier for you to ignore people who are not as wise and psychologically balanced as you are? I doubt that anybody of us is able to learn from your wise comments, more likely we laugh at you, because we are psychically disturbed and dumb, so we don't know better.
Well, speak for yourself. And grow up and learn to avoid being disturbed by (deserved) critisism.
Take a look at the Archive. If Eli is mistaken, he is unable to admit that he is and even if he isn't mistaken, often half of the content of his replies contain implied self-adulation by some kind of manipulative disregard of other personalities. I'm very, very seldom disturbed by any kind of criticism, I only try to make Eli aware that several subscribers are making jokes about him, if he again makes a fool out of himself. Sure, I'm speaking for myself, this doesn't mean that I'm not aware of other subscribers' opinions. Sometimes people are writing emails off-list.
Besides, for anyone knowledgeable it would always be easier to ignore other less knowledgeable people... But you see where this would end up.
Not really and I wasn't talking about knowledge, I was talking about wisdom and psychologically balance.
Consider to reread Eli's brilliant achievement of wisdom and online psychotherapy:
I have run Arch on it since 2009 -- I'm familiar with what it does.
Just using a thing often used by intelligent, computer-savvy people, does not *automatically* qualify you as one of them. Just using a thing for a long time does not *automatically* qualify you as familiar with that thing.
And in this case, your aggressively prioritized attitude of learned helplessness makes me wonder whether using Arch is the best thing for you.
For reasons I don't quite understand, you seem to despise the idea of becoming more knowledgeable about how things work. I don't see how this can work out...
Also consider to randomly read replies from Eli available by the Archive, maybe you'll notice something.
