A lot of them seem to be /. readers
Yeahhh the comments are very funny (nearly made me laugh my guts out) - the story really made a flame war
Author of that story really is an expert in internet trolling

Another funny story is:

>> "All my friends that are fond of compurters and *NIX stuff, like to listen to heavy music besides other genres as well. I like heavy music also - it depends on the mood mainly."

i think there are some co-relationships between heavy musical stuffs and expertise in *nix , some MIT-styled serious socioligical studies in sciences are badly needed down here ...

in fact i also like this one ::

Heh I am happy that you like Latvian hard-music (there is lots of other good Latvian music besides hard one).
Just be shure not to miss the Judas Priest concert this weekend
You might be lucky to catch a plane from Singapore to Riga - It is worth seeing those dudes live!

Several of my clients did.

As they say, "for most people, listening to sophisticated humor results in nothing more than a very close haircut." (i.e. it goes Z-z-z-zip-p-p! Right over their heads.)
