This defines the circular argument one will have with a Loontard. This argument tactic is used by every Freetard you encounter, whether it be in person or in blog comments.

An example of the cycle is as such:

  • Loontard declares that Linux is superior, usually Ubuntu. The rest aren’t fooled.
  • Loontard says has all apps you will ever need. The rest don’t agree and say they are buggy.
  • Loontard says file a bug report and support will be forthcoming. Rest dont agree.
  • Loontard says fix it yourself and contribute. Rest aren’t developers.
  • Loontard say you’re too dumb to use Linux. Rest say but Windows is far easier to do anything, personal or in business.
  • Loontard says something about LAMP ruling server rooms. Rest say, we don’t just run webservers.
  • Loontard says he is/was an admin for some multi-trillion dollar entity and has like a planet full of users all using Ubuntu. The rest smell bullshit.
  • Loontard then claims victory in supercomputer market. The rest instate a reality check because the argument was over desktop.
  • Loontard declares that Linux is superior, usually Ubuntu. The circle is complete.

A thing I’ve never understood: If Linux is so perfect and stuff as these Loontards claim, why the heck can’t they make a usable GUI or at least a CLI where you don’t have cryptic shell commands with even more cryptic switches?
Is it because Linux teaches you CS and else you wouldn’t learn it ?

Anybody remember the “thousands of fortune 100 companies” guy? That was epic.

You guys should read Alex Belits posts on Slashdot it fits every. single. bit. of the circle of the loon but then he tops it by using some psychobabble he picked up on wikipedia to "invalidate" every argument. All links to actual Linux developers pointing out problems is "appeals to authority" while any other links are all listed as "circlular reasoning" while never actually given an explanation of WHY they are supposedly circluar...all while he's doing the circle of the loon! Its classic!
