Steve Jobs loses to 'The Protester' as Time's 2011 Person of the Year - Page 5

post #161 of 185
What an unnecessarily inflammatory story.

Steve Jobs did a lot in his lifetime. He is the Da Vinci of the modern era. However, he didn't do much in 2011. The biggest new story regarding Steve Jobs in 2011 was his passing. So without a doubt, the protesters were more deserving. They made more of a difference THIS YEAR than Jobs did.

As for those mindlessly trashing Time Magazine, where were all of you when they put Steve Jobs on the cover after his death?

Ya, those protesters are a crazy bunch of misfits. They're trouble makers who don't seem to be fond of rules and they certainly have no respect for the status quo. I wonder what makes them crazy enough to think they can change the world?

Not unless you stereotype people based on what one poster writes. You're not that shallow, right?

If you find a way, let me know.

He literally is 20% of the posts on a 160 post thread. I like to read other peoples posts, but it gets bogged down with everyone telling him how stupid he is- and yet he KEEPS POSTING! So that leads to more people disproving everything he says and calling him a moron, which leads to more posts by him... You see where it's going.

He's a troll- and you gotta give it to him- he's winning. Because people respond to his idiocy hook, line, and sinker.

Here's a story about their latest bs.

They're well known for their "inaccurate" graphics.

Anybody who thinks cable news is actually news is really not thinking straight. Cable news is a show, whose aim is to get people to watch. The more people watch, the more money they make, in a direct relationship. Occasionally you get breaking news but then they just sledgehammer it to death in 24x7 coverage... and end up interviewing each other. Fox, CNN, MSNBC, whatever. It's all just trying to suck you into watching.

One of my favorite moments was when CNN was doing the wall-to-wall Anna Nicole Smith death coverage. My wife had it on while I was in the room, they cut to Jack Cafferty's show (he's the crotchety old guy), and he opened with, "Anna Nicole Smith is still dead". Completely deadpan.

100% of your posts in this thread have been about me.

I see that your hard on for me has not yet subsided and here you are with yet another off topic troll post which has nothing to do with the topic at all, yet it has 100% to do with me.

You're not too bright apparently, but I've already told you before that you need to put not only me on ignore, but also everybody who quotes me, and then you won't ever see any of my posts. It's quite a simple concept. Don't blame me that people like to quote me.

I also type incredibly fast and I process information roughly 7 times more efficiently than trolls who do nothing but whine and make off topic posts, but such is life. Not everybody is born with equal talent.

Who cares about that? That was purely a money making move on their part and they were merely cashing in on his popularity as that was the big story at the time.

Ya I'd say cable news in general is rather poisonous in its nature. I can't recommend any of it. Except the Daily Show

Your nowhere near as smart as you brag.

The majority of your posts are simply bombastic and flippant. Often you seem selfish and rude.
Occasionally you say something interesting and sometimes make a good joke.
But that's about it.

It's not that I am so smart. It is merely that others are less smart.

And it's "you're" of course, since we are discussing smartness, so it would be wrong for me not to correct that.

If that were so I don't think they would be smart enough to type.

And that's why so many on the left are completely ignorant. They get their news from a politically biased comedy show.

Some people are barely smart enough to type. They are certainly not smart enough to engage me in intelligent debate. That terrifies them, so they have to resort to what simple people do, make off topic ad hominem posts.

You really should pause after such a gem, which pretty much disqualifies you from criticizing anyone's intelligence for 2 days.

Those on the left are completely ignorant? Out of fairness, I'm tempted to say that ignorance spans the whole political spectrum. But surveys have shown that higher education generally inclines one to be left-leaning. Let's not forget that many (a majority?) on the right refute evolution.

I don't disagree with you that ignorance spans across the entire spectrum.

Amazing. One comment here is even more stupider than the other. Oh no, Steve didn't become Man of the Year! Times is stuuuupid! I'm pretty much fed up with this website and the people that visit it. The Kindle article was a new low but this really is the limit. Goodbye.

As opposed to fox news, who outright lie to people.

TS- I wouldn't just dismiss it- when a thread is allowed to be de-railed so heavily by one douchebag, people are going to be turned off of the site. Enough is enough eventually- particularly when people want to have logical and rational discussions and read what others thoughts are. Again- logical and rational.

Hopefully the mods will be giving this poster another infraction for yet another post in violation of the forum rules here. I believe that calling a poster on this forum a douchebag would be against those rules, as I've read them. I try to follow the rules closely.

Is this stalker allowed to continue stalking here? Every one of their posts in this thread and in other threads is only about me and completely off topic.

This is silly. Time, how you have become so irrelevant. Let me guess, the cover is someone in a Guy Fawke's mask? I'm not even going to bother Googling it.

Time trying to be "alternative" and support "the protestor". Blatant greenwashing, or whatever you want to call it.

SJ was a great mind and deserves the recognition he gets. But the act of standing for what one believes in and acting for change on today's world is much more important.

I used to get excited on what new processors and designs are coming from Apple. Today I get excited to see more people making their voice heard and working towards keeping our liberty.
