Ron Paul is the new Linux?
Linux freaks have a reputation for posting a bunch of crazy comments every time someone in the Media reports a problem with Linux, or posts something positive about a lock-in media format (which always come to grief in the end: neener, neener baseball DRM) or, of course, certain IT vendors.
But now we have a new Internet freak threat: the Ron Paul commenters. Mention Rep. Paul, and your blog gets a crap-storm of comments, just as if you said "Linux is not ready for the enterprise" or something. Examples: Tim Lee and Justin Mason.
I wonder how many of the Ron Paul fans are Linux users, or people who tried Linux and gave it up for stronger stuff.
Posting a bunch of flaming comments in favor of something doesn't mean that the argument is bad. It just means that the poster isn't house-trained.
