    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I need to thank Rurik and Killface for reminding me why I do not miss my youth. Good lord, you both put my youth "know it all" attitude to shame. It is always fun watching someone move the goal posts, until they are in a corner, then reduce their own argument down to the point of absurdity.

    Then again, I can't mock the youth because there is Rabbit and Doofadofus that remind me you can be just as dumb when you get older.

    You decided to make this personal, and at that moment I decided to stop arguing with you and start ridiculing you instead. If you would like to imagine that counts as a victory for you, go right ahead.

    For my part, since I'm not interested in getting into the Killface vs. the world pile-on, there is nothing left for me in this thread.

    After getting some sleep, I figured that I am stupid and goodlun is right.

    Well it is a bit more complicated but it sounded catchy.
    I am stupid because I used bad and irrelevant examples and shifted the focus of the discussion to not really important stuff.
    How is goodlun right? He is right under the assumption of an working market mechanism. Actually for good results under a perfect market. Also market forces need to control most of the economy.

    I think that in reality the market too much flawed.

    That is the main point we should have discussed.

    How about the most obvious example that would be this site here, bullshido. The content that the user here provide is extremely valuable. Though maybe not this thread.

    Yes Wikipedia would never have been possible. Oh wait, they don�t have ads.

    They also don't have Bullshido; they are also not free of corporate bias.

    You might have a point if Wikipedia lived in a vacuum. The sheer number of internet user that are out there wouldn't be out there if you stripped away all of the content that advertisers currently pay for. How would people even find wiki without marketing? Google wouldn't be around. In a world without marketing wiki couldn't even promote itself enough to get a user base.

    Wow, for a second, I thought you had an epiphany.

    That is the main point we should have discussed.

    Maybe get off IE and find a real browser with a spellcheck, at least until you learn English.
