just woke up. went to check my mail and it's all people asking stupid livejournal questions. i knew this day would come, the day the majority of my users aren't smart, self-motivated, can-read-the-instructions-themselves early-adopters that know what they're doing.... we're now approaching what i've heard described as the "critical stupid mass", where the majority of the users are clueless. of course, only 1/5 of the users are @aol.com right now, whereas freevote.com is over 50%, so I guess that's the real indicator. i'll keep an eye on that metric, and be sure to shoot myself before we get there.

Haha

So much for that comment about hating Freevote because it's user are dumb, and loving LiveJournal because it's users aren't clueless. Time to think about making another site?!?!....

Sorry Brad
Bin my e-mail immediately. i feel responsible for spoiling your day, being a too-early adopter. It's a character fault of mine, I''ll go and see a shrink for it. Forget about me, I''ll find out myself, delete my whole journal if you like.
I want to see you happy!!!

Re:

No, no.... Your email was good, you pointed out a bug in the system. I only mind when people ask me really dumb questions... yours wasn't dumb.

So what constitutes a stupid user, other than being an AOLer? Examples; so we won't look stupid in the eyes of Bread.

i mean brad.

Evan's Razor

I don't remember the original author, so I'll attribute it to myself:
"Given a sufficiently large group of people, most will be idiots."

That explains (in chronological order) the Internet, FreeVote, and Linux.
