Am I 'one of those people'?
Our experiences differ. I prefer email. Text messages are for hooking up down town.
Are you 'one of those people' who think that anyone who doesn't do things the way you do them is 'one of those people'?
With a smart phone you can communicate how you like no matter which one of 'those people' you happen to be.

created by militant atheists

You mean the atheists runing around killing abortion doctors on the command of no god whatsoever, or the atheists blowing themselves up in the name of no higher order?

Or do you mean that the bad things that were not done in the name of a god are the fault of all people that don't believe in gods?

There is no such thing as atheist dogma, so there is nothing for militant atheists to be militant about. There are non-religious dogmas, such as Stalinism. Please explain how all atheists are responsible for, or support these. You know, like how all Catholics support bigotry because they subscribe to Catholocism.

Why should I store any of my media (or other data, for that matter) anyplace else?

There's no good reason to do that. Storage is dirt cheap. If you don't own a real computer you might find it useful. If you aren't storing it on your own system though, you should reconsider calling it 'your' media, because you don't actually possess it.

I'm still not confident in Linux's ability to remain stable/repair itself easily without having to frequently re-install.

I don't understand that either. My 76 yo mother uses Linux with no problems, because she isn't net savvy she was always screwing her windows install.

Personally I work with and use windows personally and have for 20 years. Basically the whole run. I'm sure I've had to perform re-installs, but the only times I specifically remember doing that is setup runthroughs on new installations.

Basically both ends of the spectrum heard from.

You will need lots and lots of security guards. "Developing countries" is Liberal-speak code word for "lots and lots of niggers". They're violent and they steal.

I totally agree. Those developing countries are full of crime. You'd think that CIA installed fascist governments would have a better handle on things, but noooo.

US ghettos, same thing, you keep sending the cops in to fuck them over, but they never learn to behave.

Here in Canada we educate our niggers. If it weren't for the colour of their skin, you wouldn't even be able to tell they were an inferior race. Sly bastards.
