Whenever an update is available for download, I read these forums for feedback to see if there are any bugs. Instead, what I get is a group of crazies telling me they're downloading it now, and whether or not the download speed is fast or slow, and whether or not the update his appeared on your device. (Of course it's going to be slow if you download it in the first few hours).

If I said this drives me crazy, I suspect the mentality of such people would be that of glee, since they're intelligent enough to have a motive of aiming to infuriate everyone.

I picture these types of people as teeny or immature twentysomethings who play hours and hours of computer games per day.

I guess I shouldnt be surprised if these types of people are older techies who just never outgrew their pimple days.
