Take that Microsoft, and any other Help Desks!

...says Lorren, typing on his computer and posting this on the Internet. Way to practice what you preach there, bub!
Gadzooks, I just nominated tifferoo for \"Luddite of the Month,\" and this post (the very next one I read) is at least as strong a contender. Bizarre.
What do you want to bet this person also drives, uses a microwave, watches television, listens to the radio, and owns almost nothing but machine-manufactured products? That fiend!
EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that this post and the one by tifferoo are old ones, so no awards. Pity -- they're so deserving!

I would be so happy if you and the rest of the worlds fundies then get off their computers and move to a sandcave deep into Saharas desert.

Then why are you using a computer?

The irony burns.

Do you post your comments with smoke signals?

Non Contradiction Award. Either that or Death By Irony Overdose.

And yet, you typed this on an internet-capable computer from your home, place of work, local library or university. I'd love to see the twisted, warped justification you used to rationalize it away.
No more Hot Pockets for you.

You. Off your computer. Out of your house. Go to a cave. You must wait for nature to provide you with fire. No tools. Have fun.
1/9/2008 1:52:35 PM
GET OFF THE INTERNET!

I'm using a great piece of technology on this submission. It's called an irony meter.
1/9/2008 6:33:03 PM
hi, kettle. i'm a pot. you're black!
1/9/2008 6:40:14 PM
Then what the hell are you doing with a computer?
1/9/2008 8:34:13 PM
So stop using your computer.
And the next time you need a doctor, or any food, clothing or shelter for that matter, forget it.

Get off the computer. Live in a cave with no electricity of techonology whatsoever.
Come see me in a few years.
5/24/2008 1:08:00 AM
Oh, Lorren, you sinner! Get off that computer!
5/24/2008 1:12:30 PM
So stop using that computer.
5/24/2008 2:03:17 PM
Lorren just cracked the screen on my irony meter.

I have a feeling this is the same situation you see with anarcho-primitivists like Derrick Jensen and John Zerzan. They only use technology to get people to realize humanity needs to revert to...well, depending on the primitivist in question, either unalloyed hunter-gatherer (e.g. Jensen) or something like all-instinct-no-or-minimal-intellect (Zerzan; we're talking about someone who thinks LANGUAGE is a sign of malignant alienation from nature. Fundamentalist monism, maybe?). Either way, part of the conceit is using technology to utterly dispel technology.
Between the primitivists and the dispensationalists (with the latter, their understanding of Eden), I get the feeling part of the problem is a desire for stasis. It's as though to them, "change" is nothing but a subset of "catastrophe". Perhaps the proof of Heaven's perfection is its alleged stasis (nothing but glorifying God for all eternity...you could argue that that's stasis...)?

My Irony Meter just went supernova.
@ Skynight... I have similar misgivings about John Zerzan: blaming our predicament on language is I'm afraid throwing the baby with the bath water, as finding effective solutions and implementing them, while hard, would become an impossible task if we couldn't communicate.
