  • meaning clarification

    we know "Bastard" can mean

    1) disagreeable person
    2) child born out of wedlock

    I presume you mean #1 but is your use of the word "bastard" implying an less-than-favorable opinion on #2?

    Given that #2 can be an issue with certain groups of rabbid conservatives, I would ask you to please make better word choices.

      • Happy Jason is not one of us

        Listened to the first 30 seconds of the podcast. Drugs, alcohol and cheap
        language. Jason better you stick with your own crowd. Unusual to be
        attacking others from such a low position though.

        Further confirmation of the ZDNet standard. Pathetic really.

        • Uh

          That is not MY podcast. That is the "Angry Mac Bastards" podcast.

          • I was wrong

            I'm very sorry for my misunderstanding. I confused your podcast for the
            offensive podcast and I wasn't willing to listen to it long enough to
            uncover my error.

            Listening to your podcast I could NOT have been more wrong. Not that I
            agree with many of the positions presented but it was eloquently and
            professionally done. Again I'm sorry.

  • Angry Mac bastard = lame, stupid, and fake

    Ra Ra for the angry mac guy. It takes true skill to sprinkle profanities into a blog for the sole purpose of manufacturing a lame web persona.

    Give me a break. That bum needs a life, and anyone who follows that piece of crap blog needs a bigger one.

    • lame & stupid . not fake

      Those guys are actually like that.
      I listened for as long as I could take it.

      All I can say is it is a lot like using Microsoft
      Products ... unproductive and sprinkled with
      profanity.

      Much better content when they are writing.
