Teh Bert rocks. I should make some Babs wallpaper.<p><blockquote>Don't exaggarate my words. I just find the endless references irritating. </blockquote> <br>I'm using hyperbole to make a point. If you didn't get it, try again.<p><blockquote>Since when did you know everybody's opinion? I know I'm not the only one who finds the endless references irritating. Enough is enough</blockquote><br>But the question is, do you have to whine about everything? There's such a thing as "tolerance", you know. See, there are things that you do that I don't like, but I don't hound you everytime you do them. Sometimes you have to deal with things you don't like. That's the way the world work.<p><blockquote>It's no longer a screenshot of a wallpaper as soon as it's part of your desktop.<br></blockquote> <br>One could argue that it's still a screenshot of your wallpaper, as your wallpaper is a part of your desktop. Of course, if you want to be neurotic about this, go ahead.<p><blockquote>You're again exaggarating my words. Please stop it now.</blockquote> <br>Nah, you've done nothing but whine in this thread. About issues of technicality. I don't know where you find the time to actually care about things like these.

<blockquote>My emphasis added, sir.</blockquote><br>That's your perception of the situation.<br> <blockquote>But the question is, do you have to whine about everything?</blockquote><br>Since when do I whine about everything? I argue about one thing and suddenly I'm whining, and about everything, at that?<br> <blockquote>There's such a thing as "tolerance", you know.</blockquote><br>Yes, but tolerance has a limit too. And it has been reached.<br> <blockquote>One could argue that it's still a screenshot of your wallpaper, as your wallpaper is a part of your desktop. Of course, if you want to be neurotic about this, go ahead.</blockquote><br>One sure could argue that, but the simple fact is that when your Windows environment is added to it, and the wallpaper is the background, then it becomes a screenshot of your desktop.<br> <blockquote>Nah, you've done nothing but whine in this thread. About issues of technicality. I don't know where you find the time to actually care about things like these.</blockquote><br>I'm arguing. It takes two to argue. But since you think it's unimportant or trivial, you dismiss it as whining. Yet you still keep replying, and then I reply too, etc. But no, let's just dismiss it as trivial crap that one whiner is spitting, and disregard that it takes two people to argue (in this case, there are even three).<p>Small things make life. If you disregard the small, you aren't worth the big(ger). That's not to say that you have to argue about everything, of course.<p>[size=small][Edit by Benoit on [TIME]1119815371[/TIME]][/size]

<blockquote>Since when do I whine about everything? I argue about one thing and suddenly I'm whining, and about everything, at that? </blockquote> <br>You find reason to complain about most things, Benoit. You're always the first to start an arguement over small things that are issues of technicality. I don't think anybody would argue that. You've done it with your petty nitpicking. Let things be, not everything is perfect. This perfectionism is trying, I will tell you that.<p><blockquote>Yes, but tolerance has a limit too. And it has been reached.</blockquote> <br>Then your tolerance is pitiful. Perhaps mine should be as well... next time you say "w00t", I'm going to get into a huge pointless arguement with you because (oh noes!11) it bothers me. God forbid <i>anything</i> should ever bother me!<p><blockquote>One sure could argue that,</blockquote> <br>Then I shall continue to. Either is acceptable, and I changed the title, so you can quit complaining.<p><blockquote>But since you think it's unimportant or trivial, you dismiss it as whining</blockquote><br>If starting an arguement over a technicality isn't trivial, I don't know what is. A small technicality that you had to contest. I don't know why the hell you do it, but it's incredibily immature and reflects badly upon yourself. And this wasn't even a matter of me being wrong... I showed my wallpaper, albeit in a screenshot of my desktop. See? That's what makes this trivial.<p><blockquote>Yet you still keep replying, and then I reply too, etc</blockquote><br>That's because we both always want the last word.:)<p><blockquote>That's not to say that you have to argue about everything, of course.</blockquote><br>You yourself have said it. Now, if you would obey something that you yourself said, then we would be perfectly fine and would not be having this conversation.

<blockquote>And why should I be forbidden of doing so?</blockquote> <p>Because arguing about little, insignificant things does nothing. It gets you nowhere. The benefit about arguing is that you learn something new and gain different insight, but there is no benefit to arguing something irrelevant and unimportant, which this is. You nit-pick constantly, and it gets no one anywhere.<p><blockquote> I'll argue about what I want, where I want, when I want. It doesn't have to be big to be worth discussing. If I feel it's worth discussing, I'll do so. Yes, I'm a perfectionist. So sue me. </blockquote> <p>I would never have guessed you are 19 years old. 14 is more suiting of your maturity. You are not a perfectionist; you are someone with an ego complex who feels the need to debate trivial details. You seem to get your worth out of arguing on the internet, but you fail to see the big picture.<p>This is clearly a thread about your desktop...or your wallpaper. Either/or. Take it however you want, but the topic is pretty damn clear in either case.

<blockquote>Except that I think this so-called trivial detail is important. </blockquote> <br>From Dictionary.com...<p>-triv·i·al Audio pronunciation of "Trivial" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (trv-l)<br>adj.<br> 1. Of little significance or value.<p>Is a matter of technicality really important? Does it affect you in any real way at all? No, I'd hope not. If it does, you have bigger problems.<p><blockquote>And why should I be forbidden of doing so? I'll argue about what I want, where I want, when I want. It doesn't have to be big to be worth discussing. If I feel it's worth discussing, I'll do so. Yes, I'm a perfectionist. So sue me.</blockquote><br>Siren had this one down. Arguing about little, inconsequential things, and nitpicking, will not get you anywhere. This "I'll argue when I want, where I want and how I want" attitude doesn't befit one of your age and comes off as a tantrum. Most people have better things to do then waste time on arguement about a technicality. <br>Perhaps you need to hear this: it's a <i>technicality</i>. You know what that means? Technically, it's a wallpaper as well as a desktop, or vice versa. In other words, neither of us are wrong so to speak.<br>Additionally, perfectionism is a flaw. Perfectionists are hard to get along with and are rarely happy because they demand perfection. Perfection is unattainable.<p><blockquote>Way to go. Stop assuming things, you can't read my mind. </blockquote> <br>It's not something that has to do with your mind... it's something that makes itself apparent. If you're bothered by a Star Wars reference here and there and you need to ruin a whole thread because of it, then your tolerance is pitiful.<p><blockquote>Cry it out. You have the right to do so. Go right ahead. I won't stop you. </blockquote> <br>You know what? I don't go ruin threads because you say "w00t". It's a waste of time as well as immature. Why? Because it's trivial... not important, doesn't effect me. Not relevant in any way to the grand scheme of things. I repeat, it would be a waste of time.<p><blockquote>Yet they're still two different things that happen to be binded together. </blockquote><br>Thank you for making my point for me. Read it until it makes some sense.

Without quotes...<p>Who are you to judge about my tolerance and maturity? Maybe I do see a lot of Star Wars references, and NOT JUST HERE AND THERE. It's all based on perception.<p>I find it sad that you both can't argue without trying to insult the other arguer.<p>If I feel that arguing about what you call trivial details it's worth it, then I have the right to do it.<p>I may be a perfectionist, but that doesn't mean I'm unhappy because of it. Perfect is not attainable, but that doesn't mean I can't strive for it.<p>Do need one quote though...<br> <blockquote>Thank you for making my point for me. Read it until it makes some sense.</blockquote><br>You still fail to see that they are two different things, which is what this is about.<br>Look at the thread. IIf you had said wallpaper, the result (especially Amwhere's) would have been vastly different.

Who am I to judge? I am myself. I reserve a right to make judgements of character. Everybody does. You've made countless judges of character, as have I, as have everybody. I note that you exhibit signs of bad tolerance (being set off by something as inconsequential as a reference) and a lack of maturity (having to point out every flaw that bothers you). The fact that you must fight someone every step of the way because you're excersizing your "right" to argue with whatever you want illustrates this point.<p>You may view my manner of debate as "lolzor rofl oh noes ATTASKERS!111", but that would be based on perception. You love to throw that around when it suits you. Is it that I'm insulting you, or is it that I'm being brutally honest? Think about that.<p>And sure, you can debate details that are indesputably trivial. Yes, you have the "right". However, you must consider how excersizing this "right" makes you look. Is it just petty to do so, or is it worth ruining a thread? Just because you can exdersize a right doesn't mean you should. <p>The difference between a perfectionist and one who is not is that they both strive for the best, though one expects it and the other does not. How can you ever be happy if you are in that state of mind? If you are not unhappy because of it now, you will be in the future if it is not hammered out of you. That tends to happen to perfectionists.<p><blockquote>You still fail to see that they are two different things, which is what this is about. </blockquote><br>No, I understand perfectly. Thank you for making my point for me again. Your lack of ability to comprehend doesn't equate to my lack of understanding. <br>It's a technicality, once again. It's both a wallpaper and a desktop, and at the same time each on it's own. Sure, you can call it a desktop, which it is, but it is also a screenshot of my wallpaper that happens to include my desktop. <p>Anyway, I apologize to the people for helping take this thread off topic. Benoit, you may continue to play last word, but one must know when to leave things be, and my words are going in one figurative internet ear and out the other. In other words, any of your replies can kindly be directed to any number of my former responses and you'll likely get your answer.<p>Another note: Ian's wallpaper/desktop/EXPANSIVE INTERNET ENVIRONMENT is oddly... cool.
