    You are. Ignore him.

    MacRumors is known for having pretty darn good rules. Nice and clear.

    They're not known for following any of those rules at all…

    Ah, I remember a good many time outs for me for finally snapping and calling a spade a spade (well, an anti-Apple troll an idiot). They have as much against that single word right there as they do against pro-Apple users, but the former was hated long before the latter.


     


    They're within their rights, of course; that word is explicitly called out right in their rules. 


     


    And ours too, I suppose. We don't like insults directly against other users here, but you're welcome to express that a position being held is idiotic.

    Astroturfing worries. Someone with multiple active accounts can hold conversations with himself and derail entire threads. He can use just one account and upvote all the comments with the others, making his opinion appear more valid/accepted. 


     


    On MacRumors they don't let you ever have a second account, regardless of what happens to your first. Here we've been known to allow second accounts as long as you accept the shutdown of your first.

    And that's a good thing! They have zero tolerance for multiple accounts at least you can make a new account and have the old one deactivated here. They are way to strict.

    PART 3/3: EPILOGUE.

     


    I use the word 'idiot' a lot, and not just for this video, and I want to clarify that I never use it as an insult. Ever. I use it under the definition of the word.


     


    Someone who is ignorant of a topic does not know of it at all. They may say something about it, but if that is correct, it is by happy chance, and if it is wrong, it is because they do not know.


     


    Someone who is an idiot has done one of two things. They know of a topic and have either chosen to ignore what they do know about it or have chosen NOT to learn about the content of said topic at all. That is what defines idiocy. 


     


    The difference between someone who is stupid (ignorant) and someone who is an idiot is intent. Conscious, willful intent defines idiocy. 


     


    There is no shame in ignorance. There is great shame in idiocy.

    They often impose overly harsh penalties there.
