QuoteI think you mis-interpreted the image
QuoteI don't see the connection between Bolshevik/Communist propaganda and Apple/Steve Jobs.

I too find it completely misplaced in this threat, (and I can't follow why he continues to provoke), but I think it doesn't go as far as relate to the Stalin thing - it merely seems to say "hello, it's just one individual that died, try spend more of your attention to millions of death-threatened others that still can be rescued", which I a message I think is ok to give. Is it sensible to post this in a memorial thread? Certainly not.Regards,Frank

Quote from: Tangled-Universe on October 11, 2011, 06:09:46 amDespite your proven background knowledge I think you mis-interpreted the image.In my opinion this image clearly shows the fuzz of Steve Jobs passing away compared to the lack of fuzz about millions dying each year completely unnoticed.The image clearly is sarcastic about everybody crying over Jobs while not caring about real problems in the world which are definitely worth crying for and deserve more attention.Cheers,Martin
Quote from: calico on October 11, 2011, 08:51:48 amThis was cool (from Brad Peebler at Luxology) -"His passing hit me in a way I did not expect. I considered him a sort of mentor. I am not an Apple-zealot. I use a PC and Mac interchangeably everyday and I like and hate them both equally. At any rate, Steve was someone I looked up to and while many people talk about his "tyrant" qualities, I never experienced that. Most likely this is because I met him at a later stage in his life. I am not suggesting that he deserves the sort of unconditional praise we see in the press and worldwide over the last few days but at the same time it is unfair to be overly critical of a person you do not know. And to publicly bash someone days after their death is not being sensitive to those who may have known and liked/loved him."
QuoteWhat did you do google the word montage?
QuoteWhat is the difference between you who uses the dying just to prove a point in a forum discussion, and the rich corporations who use them for labor?
QuoteYou are worse, at least corporations give the poor a job and a chance however small. But you give them nothing, and take whatever dignity they have left away, even as they are dying!
QuoteYou are sick!
QuoteYou are worse
QuoteYou are a fool.
QuoteDo you really think personal insults against me will move me?
