Yes, use Netscape.
>Netscape fuckin sucks you dumbass.
This is such a technically brilliant response that I am just
flabbergasted. Could you please elucidate your thoughts a little more
clearly? What does "fuckin sucks" mean? Or perhaps that should just be
"sucks", if you mean it in the traditional manner, that is like a baby
sucking a pacifier, then I must ask what sucking has to do with
anything? If you mean anything else, then I must say that my grasp of
americanisms is not as good as I thought it was.
As for "dumbass", I take it that this is another americanism, but of
somewhat odious implication, but then, I am just a simple person from
another country unfamiliar with such witticism.
But the sentence structure is interesting. The first part implies that
"fuckin sucks" is a dual worded insult, yet the follow-up "dumbass" is
only one word, that is, half the deprecation of the first. Does this
mean that you have reached the limit of your IQ, and therefore can only
pass insult in a diminishing geometrical progression?
I am looking forward to further instruction in the cultural nuances
On a technical note, however, I assure you that I am very serious when
suggest that the use of a non-Microsoft browser is a good way of
circumventing Microsoft's "security" alerts. I suspect when you write
web pages you dont even bother to test them in Netscape or Opera. How
about using Linux? Do you ever think to test your pages? Think about
>I'm not american you <snip du to censorship>...</snip>
What is this?!?! 1993??? Linux?!?!? uhhhh
Linux........uhhhh yeah.....lets use Linux........cough cough.....
Even though you might not like <snip due to censorship>...</snip>,
people like to
use it. Please respect this!!
Anyone who uses Netscape is living in a world where they see
backwards. If you like Netscape, you like murder. If you like
Netscape, you like war. If you like Netscape, you like death. How
you respect Netscape users. Plus Netscape is a living hell for web
I guess you see this a little to tough, comparing NN users to
is a little far away, don't you think. Of course NN is not easy to
handle in crossbrowser programming, but one can adapt to that and
to understand NN techniques and thus make it easier for oneself to
programm pages that work on NN.
But this is not the right place to state such things as insults and/or
four-letter-words or discuss the browser-wars. If you want to do so
into a newsgroup and debate about that (still staying polite please!!).
I'll delete the last few parts of this answer in a few days, so this
base stays clean.
