Re: It's not that funny
Sigh. Okay, I'll bite. I can't tell what you personally identify as, but I've been around enough of these comment threads (and this one in particular) to have observed that the bulk of the Reg commentard community is quick to shit on anyone who might have any problem whatsoever absorbing a torrent of direct or indirect abuse and are almost exclusively without sympathy to the notion that belittling others' experience might in any way be bothersome.
That's not what you said. You were quite specific about 'straight white males'. I'm not surprised that you can't support your position.
For example, I note that you are offended. I believe the appropriate commentard-approved response (as highlighted in numerous threads about Linus Torvalds) is that you need to grow a thicker skin or get the fuck out.
Your sarcasm detector needs work.
