For arresting specimens of online behavior that are clearly examples of something, but damned if you know what it is yet. If we collect enough of them, maybe there'll be patterns.
From John Scalzi's Whatever, A Child's Treasury of Deletions
The irony behind it all is how you subtly sold your techno-right winged religious hogwash with this line, “In fact, the computer chooses the difficulty setting for you. You don’t get a choice; you just get what gets given to you at the start of the game, and then you have to deal with it,” without a hint of outrage from this flock of sheep. You digital-bible-book thumping, omnipotent computer-God worshiping lunatics won’t be happy until we are all praying “goto 10″ as the solution for every problem that challenges us, and everybody seems quite ready to become part of the global virus without the slightest bit of bandwidth lag.
It’s disgusting, really.
