Dvorak blames obsessive compulsive disorder, not Microsoft for virus problems

“An estimated 3.3 million Americans alone have obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD, and more attention is being paid to the problem than ever before. At least two hit TV shows have main characters who exhibit the problem (Monk and Law & Order: Criminal Intent). The latest iterations of e-mail


  1. Hey MDN, lol, this is also one of the things I show my switchers: opening email attachments with Windows viruses and watching them sweat. It is required in that most do not believe the virus could not ruin the Mac has it happens on the PC.

    One commented: “I though it was just BS from Mac zealots”

  2. I am so sick of Microsoft apologists and so happy to have a site like MDN to bitch slap them with reality! Dvorak has been quiet lately, but he makes Thurrott / Enderle look like Jobs / Wozniak when opens his fat mouth about Microsoft and Apple. Have another doughnut, John.

  3. Al Sharpton is visiting a primary school and he visits one of the classes.� They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks the Rev. Sharpton if he would like to lead the discussion of the word “tragedy.”

    So the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a “tragedy.”

    One little boy stands up and offers: “If my best friend, who lives on a� farm, is� playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy.” “No,” says the Great Al Sharpton,” that would be an accident.”

    A little girl raises her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.” “I’m afraid not,” explains the exalted spiritual leader. “That’s what we would call a great loss.”

    The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. Rev. Sharpton searches the room. “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”

    Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice he says: “If a plane carrying the Rev. Sharpton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.”

    “Fantastic!” exclaims Sharpton, “That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?” “Well,” says the boy, “because it sure as hell wouldn’t be a great loss and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either.”

  4. So let me get this straight.

    According to Dvorak, if I put a box with $10,000 in it out in the middle of the street with a sign on it that says, “take me,” the problem is not that I was stupid enough to put the money in a cheap box in an obvious place, but with the people who saw the sign and simply followed it.


  5. There are no viruses on Macintoshes because nobody cares about the platform other than Macfags. With the same work somebody can reach 95% instead of 2%. Logical.

  6. “we just clicked 10 email attachments … and absolutely nothing at all happened”

    You retard, what did you expect? Macintoshes use different binary format for executables. That’s the big security feature? Macmoron.
