Do you have a favourite Linux Youth site?

Does that site encourage comments?

Chances are that 90% of the comments are pant-wettingly uncritical of Linux, and/or insanely abusive if the site has Transgressed The Unwritten Law — ie pointed out some minor defect in the desktop or else added a tiny qualification like “needs a bit of work.”

At least 50% will be hysterically funny.

SolidGoldComments™ — brought to you by the same people who truly believe that compiz works, PulseAudio doesn’t deafen you, Linux file systems somehow never fragment, “Nobody does it better … Makes me feel sad for the rest,” and that “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose…”

Well, maybe not that last one. Sorry, Janis.

You make me miss Hoppi Milke, Dr. Loser.

I’m sort of thinking that this TM can be used on Linux fanboi sites.

Which reminds me — I must dash off to the latest SJVN extravaganza of Loon…

(Tried Hoppi’s earlier, and it seems to have curled up into a little ball and died. No surprise there. The half-life of idiots is shorter than you’d think.)

Nice idea, but I think I’ll hit myself over the head with a big spiky cactus instead next time.

Don’t even thing about reading the comments to http://blogs.computerworld.com/16284/ten_years_of_ibm_mainframe_linux.

Oh, the stupidity!
