It is an insult if you're using it in an acerbic-toned sentence like you did in that previous post..
I don't understand why you don't understand this; you asked me by referring me as a genius and then you answered the question yourself, it's obvious you're trying to make me look like a fool instead of a 'genius'.
So are you talking to me, or not? Because you said that you should have added more quotes other than mine, but whenever I try to read your posts when you were starting to quote me, I really don't understand where was the connection.
I take it whenever someone quotes somebody's post, it means he/she is trying to answer the quoted post, or in my case I was trying to ask 'charlituna' regarding his post.
But did you read my post right when you quoted it? Did you fully understand what I was trying to ask/say, especially about Gizmodo changed its statement from "buying the phone"
into "buying the story"
Honestly, I can't relate what you were saying (when you started quoting my posts). Like that last post of yours that I quoted above, what is "paying for a story isn't uncommon"
got to do with "send an underling or intern to snap some pics"
?? Or are you just trying to say something about the subject, but unfortunately you quoted my posts instead of the ones you actually trying to answer to?
Again, enlighten me if you can please.
