To be a better person. He seems to think of most forumites that disagree with him are the lowest of low, so why not prove that he's better than these dopes? I mean, that's what I would do. He proclaims we're stupid and dumb, so why sink to "our level?" Because that's what we expect? Whatever. If that is the real justification, I'm even less phased by what he does or says. I was only "concerned" because I remembered him quite differently.
He can tell you in a long, more polite form - but nobody listens to him anyway.
Did they ever admit that they created Jen?
On the subject of Nine, there have been times where he made me so mad or sad that I would have banned him on the spot if I would have let my temper get the better of me.
edit: In short, please stop spamming, Nine.
That's the thing. I realized that. I can't hate Nine.
I find it hard to call it spamming, since there is actual content to the posts, just hidden by span tags, and is easily revealed by quoting the post in question, however, most people seem to have not twigged to this. However, that's just my opinion, and has no bearing on reality or really anything else.

That's the thing. I realized that. I can't hate Nine.I know you realised it, Because you're the sweetest, kindest, and nicest person I've ever heard of. Well, that, and you've said it before. I'm just stating it for all to see, for the sake of making sure that everybody's picking up what I'm laying down, here.

Point taken. Everyone knows they can take content from such a license and use it how they want. However, when someone takes it and presents it as their own content without attribution to the original content-provider, it still smells like plagiarism to me.
Not naming names, but someone's blog review of the iPhone shortly after it appeared was almost word-for-word what you said on the show, and was presented as this person's own content. Someone mentioned it in the forum, and Scott hinted that he knew but didn't care.
Because he's not wasting the effort. He can tell you in a long, more polite form - but nobody listens to him anyway. There's no compelling reason to spend the effort.You might note - I'm nice to nine. He's my mate, I treat him well, Listen to what he has to say, and while we argue from time to time, but he never treats me like I'm stupid - though, admittedly, if I'm BEING stupid, he'll call me on it, which is a whore of a different colour. Still - He doesn't treat me as if I'm stupid, and while he's blunt sometimes, I understand what he's getting at, and shrug off the occasional insult.It's a two way street, really - Being nice to be above everyone else's level is a nice thought and all, but it's rarely something we actually practice. We're dicks to people who are dicks to us, and we're nice to people who are nice to us. It's just how people are. And Nothing is instant. Maybe, were we as a community to actually start listening to Nine more, and treat him with something more than casual disdain, he'd be a little less dickish to most of us.
Well, okay. THAT was pretty much spam.
