That was an oblique attack on Linux advocates as being nerdy and without
girlfriends. Unfortunately for Dr Smith, most of the Linux advocates
here are old guys with wives and children grown to adulthood.

What happens here is that this rather nasty troll is projecting its own
inadequacies onto its hated target, namely the Linux Advocates in this

Perhaps you should consider the plight of a Linux hater spending its
days in a Linux Advocacy group attacking and denigrating advocates.

More generalisation without evidence. A rehashing of tired stereotypes.

Guilt by association... very unpleasant!

Of course, there's no evidence presented as to which "Linux groups"
think such things.

This is the classic flatfish "attack". The troll hates homosexuals (and
perhaps, hates itself for being a closet homosexual) and so thinks that
calling others homosexual will hurt them. It is of course wrong in this.
It also doesn't provide any evidence as to the proportion of homosexual
Linux users with regard to proportions of Homosexual users of other
operating systems, making its statements worthless and *almost*

Of course not.

I'm not sure the troll is even human.
