    My point is that the “piss in the car” comment was mean, thoughtless, and added nothing. If grandpa is incontinent, then he’ll wear diapers regardless of the car or the bus.

    Your comment was either a.) implying that messing themselves in public was better than in relative privacy, or b.) if you use a car, grandpa doesn’t get to wear Depends.

    Take your pick.

    It might not be what you meant, but you were too busy being a jerk to notice that it’s what you said.

    In the doctor scenario, we’ve had adult diapers for a long time. Your solution is you let them pee in your car?

    And your solution is they shit themselves on public transportation?

    I mean, I’m 100% for better public transportation and urban centers designed around walking, but let’s compare apples to apples here.

    They didn’t make a straw man argument, they had a point. It’s a genuine issue and they deserve better than a flippant remark telling them to make grandpa wear diapers so he can piss himself on his walk from the bus stop.








  • You know, I had a big long thing about my local grocery store obfuscating the peanut butter, but I deleted it. I think I’m just gonna let this one go.

    Look, dude, I think we probably caught each other at a bad time or something. I’m not generally this confrontational, and I kinda doubt you are either. I’m sorry I dragged it out so far, and I’m sorry I responded the way I did to your expression of frustration.

    I’ll try to be better. Have a great day, yeah?




  • TL;DR: Don’t lay this one on me, buddy. You walked in here looking for a fight.


    I didn’t much care for the direction you started in. If you wanted an actual discussion, then opening with hostility and claims that could be refuted if you’d bothered with less than a minute of research is the wrong way to go.

    If you want a civilized discussion, you have to start with a civilized post. My responses have been no more hostile than your opening salvo.

    As it happens, Google’s influence over Mozilla is of massive concern to me. And I agree that the change was not needed. But it’s not obscure, it’s not hard to find out how to do what you wanted to do, and your hostility to responses suggesting DuckDuckGo only confirmed my suspicion that you didn’t want an answer, you wanted a fight.

    So I gave you one.

    Here’s the deal. If you walk into a place with guns blazing, you don’t get to act all surprised and indignant when someone fires back.






  • Maybe. But even if that was the case, the way it is now isn’t obfuscated. It’s not difficult. It’s not hard to find out how to do it. You made a big long post to complain about an “obfuscated” feature that I found in under a minute.

    Next time, either do a search or ask for help, instead of whinging like a n00b. Or worse, some kind of Google FUD-spreading parasite.

    FFS, Jesus Wept. I finally understand those blokes over at FreeBSD telling me to RTFM twenty years ago.

    Edit: Apparently, the synonym for complain I used before was offensive. It was not the “B” word, which I only use in reference to female dogs. Just wanted that to be clear.
