Another definition for iTwat
A person who is called moron / idiot / fanboy / wanker for having the cheek to buy something they like.
I have owned one piece of Apple kit in my life, and only since last month, and object to all of this abuse. If you are so sad that you have to abuse someone because you can't bear to see people using something that you don't happen to like, then you are the one with the problem.
I have worked in IT for nearly 15 years, and in the past I have visited this site for some intellectual discussions, many of which have helped me, and provided a useful insight into the latest developments. I can't bear this crap everytime an article is posted about an iPhone. The Apple-haters rubbish really annoys me. I can't work out why it bothers you so much - if anyone would like to contact me and explain to me why you get so worked up about it, then please feel free. I need to understand what it is that makes you feel the need. We are all intelligent people here, you'll have to help me out as I can't understand why people get so abusive. I need to know how your mind works, and make sure that my kids don't turn out like that.
Here we are in the middle of a credit crunch, and yet some people here still feel the need to come out with plain abuse directed at people who bought a product that they don't like.
You don't like iPhones? So what, who cares? If you think abusing someone, rather than contributing sensibly to the discussion is good, then why don't you go and do it elsewhere?
I am disappointed with the Register, for continuing to allow this to go on. I can't explain how much it winds me up.
You can say that I am biting if you like - you'd be dead right. I'm just sick of seeing the same shit over and over again. Come on, grow up people.
I wear Adidas trainers and don't like Nike. By your obviously right logic, then everyone who wears Nike trainers is a wanker and a Nike fanboy, who fall for the expensive Wayne Rooney adverts for metatarsal-breaking football boots. Don't say it's not the same, cos it is. It's just about shoes and not a phone.
Laugh at me all you want you tossers, I really don't care. Just crawl back into your little holes, check Google for 'iPhone' and then go and find somewhere else to offer your little pearls of wisdom. I'm sure your intelligent comments will wind someone else up.
Criticise the iPhone for it's tie-in, locks, etc, by all means. These are all intellectual, and very valid things to discuss. I don't like it either, but it doesn't make me a wanker. Just don't abuse someone for having the cheek to own one, you're just making a prick out of yourself.
I let things bother me too much, that's my problem, but it needed said.
