Statistics about what..?

Postby anaesthetic » Thu Nov 03, 2011 1:45 am

Just a tiny rant. I submitted an article to tech beta about Hotmail accounts being blocked due to spam.

CE tells me that the section on personal significance would be better with a "statistic on the effects of losing one's email account." Are you fucking kidding me? Just trying to be a douchebag? The average American spends less 99% time dealing with compromised Hotmail accounts than I do with your douchey ass. I don't know. How the hell is that supposed to be quantifiable?

Then, he/she asks for me to provide parenthetical references to my TWO references. Hey, genius: if it's not one, it's the other. Why don't you look at them?

So I loaded that shit up with another 6 references and cited them all multiple times.
