The loudest zealots are usually the non-coders. To them, I am often tempted to ask: what was your contribution?
(Shane's comment in OSNews)
they contribution is make headcache :D
This sounds like a way to avoid taking people's comments at face value and engaging people in discussion. Dismissing non-coders out of hand (regardless of whether they are advocating, or how much they advocate) means eliminating most people who use a computer. Perhaps they have something interesting to contribute to a discussion regardless of their technical skill.
J.B. Nicholson-Owens: On the contrary, constructive comments and discussions, by non-coders or whomever, are encouraged. Shane's comment that the loudest zealots are usually the non-coders does not automatically mean that non-coders are zealots (and therefore useless). I know many non-coders who are very helpful, and they are not zealots.
