  • You sure know how to demagogue the synagogue.
  • Not only is his analogy horrid, but he also misspelled mandatory.

    He has made a point of defending his atrocious analogy already though oddly enough nobody has brought up his assault on the English language. If he wants to share with the world his fact-free viewpoints, he is free to do so. However someone should call him out on his failure to use spell check. Even free word processors and web browsers have them (for that matter I think my inexpensive cell phone can even check my spelling).

They are called computers simply because computation is the only significant job that has so far been given to them.
