fredklein: Mellotiger: It does indeed pay, but not so much that I'm willing to research every article in case the reporting is sloppySo, you admit you didn't read the article posted in the 4th post. The "better article" (ie: with more details).So I'll just go with what I'm presented unless it's actually interesting enough to follow linksIf it's interesting enough to post about, I'd think it's interesting enough to click a link. But that's just me, looking for actual facts. You prefer to 'go with what you're presented'.In the future when you chastise me over whatever perceived error, it would probably go much better if you don't make a faulty assumption at the very beginning of the comment.It wasn't faulty- you DIDN'T read the article.
Mellotiger: The first sentence you write in your response to me started "if you are not going to rtfa...", correct? In this case, tfa is the article the link posted on fark went to, right?
fredklein: I never specified which FA you didn't R.

In this case, tfa is the article the link posted on fark went to, right?I never specified which FA you didn't R. With a choice between one with few/no details, and a "better article" with more details... well, I'll let you think about that.If you meant some other article, you should have specified, and then you wouldn't look like such a tool.I'll apologize then. I'm SORRY you don't bother to research (to the total effort of clicking one link, displayed near the top of the thread) the topic you are posting about.As a result, I made a snarky comment based on bad reporting.No, you made a snarky comment based on lack of knowledge because you 'go with what you're spoonfedpresented'.Whatever.
