Kaleea Tech: Blue Clickies How to do!: (37) RE: Tech: Blue Clickies How to do!: 07 Sep 06

As long as I am typing this in the good old USofA, I shall continue to refer to those whatchamacallitz as, "blue clickies!!"
Some of you show offs (you know who you are!) seem to think that just because you can achieve the stuff of miracles (tech thingies, blue clickies, text messages which meander across the screen, & such) that everyone who cannot is, in fact, an idiot. I maintain that you show offs who would accost the technically challenged are, in fact, prejudiced and pompous weasels! I also maintain that there are many persuits in which we the, technically challenged, have far greater talent and abilities than you prejudiced and pompous weasels.   
Furthermore, for some reason, my 'puter will not allow me to make a blue clicky by simply reading and following the directions. I know this to be true, inasmuchas an 9 year old neighbor (who is technically savy but not a prejuiced and pompous weasel), upon reading and following the blue clicky link directions, also could not produce a blue clicky. Being as he had to push off immediately to carry out trash for his bellowing mother (who is otherwise a great gal), he didn't have the opportunity to fix it or at the least explain what I should do to make the aforementioned clicky.
Now, everyone on the planet, with the possible exception of a couple of small tribes of aboriginal people in the Southern Hemisphere, knows that any 9 year old child who uses computers is a great deal smarter than any collective of 47 of you prejudiced and pompous techie weasels. Therefore, let us concede that the blue clicky link is not always the answer.
Since, evidently, I am not the only person for which the blue clicky thingamabob does not work, how about putting a colourful and meandering text message across the screen which, perhaps, we technically challenged but otherwise worthy persons could cut and paste into our message, then insert the URL in the middle (which we could also cut and paste), thus hopefully creating, in effect, a working blue clicky.

By the by, do any of the above sentences qualify as a long sentence by the standards of the long sentence challenge thread which I have not had time to look at inasmuchas I have been typing these long sentences in rebuttal to you prejudiced and pompous techie weasels (you know who you are!)?
