    "Retard" is a word used by 9 year olds in the way you used it. Nothing to do with the "Microsoft camp".

    Why would you find it weird that Microsoft appears under "special people"? Likely your spouse would fall into this category too, no?

    Why, Paolo? He's taking into consideration the friction and heat generated by your cornea brushing across the inner-surface of your epithelium and trying to eliminate as much unnecessary energy-usage as possible while you read his links. Ooops, I guess I just wasted a lot of it myself with this lengthy message - sorry foreachdev, mission failed.

    The second picture for me is Tom Cruise. lol

    Didn't mean to reply to you Jonathan.  Does anyone else find that annoying?  If I'm replying to specific post, chances are I'm going to quote it anyway.

    Whenever you click "Respond, or Reply," select the radio button titled "Reply to root," or "Respond to root." I don't browse c9 in english, so I'm not sure which it says, but you'll see the two options just above the textbox.

    Do you use euphamisms to mask your true meaning?  I don't; I say what I really mean.  If someone suffers from mental or physical retardation, they're a retard.  There's nothing wrong with the medical condition in and of itself.  I hate terms like "Special people" which masks the true intention of the phrase.  Retards aren't special; they're "special needs", but I'll spare you the full rant.

    Does that make me a 9-year-old?

    Picture of the Microsoft team....and calling them retards. Where's the euphemism in that? That's childish, plain and simple.

    I was referring to the use of terms like "Special people".
