Uh.... Dennis Ritchie was the father of C along with Ken Thompson. The fact you're quoting Brian Kernighan as the author and acting haughty about it kind of kills all weight and credibility to your responses.
He made a mistake with citation. Other than that mistake he was not the one who was rude. He didn't claim that the other guy was offering 'bullshit' and he didn't resort to being rude until Janne was a douche about it. Janne is the dickhead in this situation. Not Theofanis for making a mistake on who said something.
Edit: Just realised how old this is! Apologies for piping up but my point still stands in my opinion so I'ma leave it thurrr
Again, whoever made the statement is irrelevant. Appeal to authority is a shit argument as well. Rudeness also matters exactly none at all to the correctness of the statement.
Well it does hold relevance when that was the turning point of this particular conversation turning sour. I didn't say anything about appealing to authority. Your last statement was the only thing you said that is true. You can be correct and not a cunt simultaneously though.
Sure seems to me that you are the cunt and dickhead in this conversation if that's all you've come here to do, to fling random insults without making a point.
I did make a point. You can be correct without being a cunt. Something you clearly struggle with.
