As more and more people use the net I am slowly reaching my limit of putting up with stupid people.
When someone asked a question on how to "hotwire" a Dreamcast controller for PC I gave excellent advice pointing out where you can buy adaptors online and pointed out some forums where he could ask his question and actually get it answered (he wasn't asking in the right manner or place).
The response was so insulting to me.
So he posted another question, asking the SAME thing.
He seems to think that he can just splice some wires from a USB cord to a Dreamcast cord and make it work.
Any working adaptor will require CUSTOM dedicated circuits.
This guy is obviously too dense to put something like that together.
Some jerk might eventually give him wrong instructions on purpose that will burn out his USB port.
I have seen people give advice on how to clean games by telling others to put their CDs in the Microwave on high for 5 minutes. [Yes that would ruin the CD and maybe the Microwave] Before this I never understood why people were being trolls like that. Now I somewhat understand. There is only much IGNORANCE you can take. Try to give some advice to someone and they will not respond like a normal human being because the internet 2.0 promises EXACT ANSWERS RIGHT NOW. Well the only problem is that more and more people are becoming ignorant slobs who can't take it when someone tells them "no you can't really do that".
People have to know their LIMITATIONS. They have to know that they can't just assume they can handle ANYTHING. There is no voice of reason on the 'net yet. It's just a bunch of assholes and the loudest asshole gets heard.
There is SO MUCH PRIDE IN THEIR OWN IGNORANCE. Instead of trying to learn they lash out against those that give constructive advice and criticism. They turn a blind eye to their own faults and look elsewhere for justification of their stupidity. AND THERE IS ALWAYS A FORUM OF LIKE MINDED ASSES WHO WILL SUPPORT THEM!
Is this the real face of humanity?
Has Technology shown us what complete morons the world is composed of?
Instead of delivering humanity into the next stage have we set the world up to be consumed by half-aware Luddites?????????
I have to stop looking around the Internet. I only depress myself.
