Branch Purpose

The tech illiterate posters without nephews or grandsons and who refuse to talk to Indians or Philippinos seem to use this branch to ask for tech support. "How do I email a webpage to my work phone?"

Others use it to talk about how they built a schuman resonance harvesting btc miner.

These seem like two totally different purposes. What say you?

This seems to get more admin responsiveness than sound off so maybe it should be merged.

Oh, only be-penised humans--and presumably young ones-- are "tech literate"?

I assumed it would just be for the nerds but have been pleasantly surprised that non nerds have posted here. We even get Eric showing up moaning about me.

Are you?

"Nephews and grandsons" ...do you see the problem there?

I'm poking fun.

Would you be happier if I'd said "tech illiterate posters without nephews, grandsons, wives, cousins, grandmothers, step daughters, god sons, half-sisters, great aunts, or double-cousins..."?

Why did you take issue with "nephews and grandsons" and not "indians and philippinos"?

Why did you assume the sexual anatomy of nephews and grandsons? Do you see the problem there?

I voted for the second option, but feel like it's more in the middle maybe: people who have basic tech skills but need higher-level nerds to weigh in on an issue.

Maybe I don't come here often enough, but compared to some other forums, we seem to get remarkably little "I decreased the font size in my browser! How do I get it back to normal?!" questions.
