Irrelevant. I don't particularly care about your overall spending habits beyond whether it makes you an early or late adopter, or even a good lead at all. What I care about is you being a brazenly pretentious know-nothing know-it-all
, who is arrogantly trying to tout his ignorant presumptions - presumptions that make it clear as day that he never studied the topic - as if it were expertise.
Let me put it to you this way: Imagine I was a bumpkin who insisted to you that IT was a scam because I [claimed to have] never gone to an IT desk in my life, and instead simply talked to Technical Support at my office whenever my work computer acted up, and moreover that the very idea of computer viruses was absurd because viruses only infected living things. Odds are good that as someone who works in that field, that kind of ignorance would be enormously frustrating to you.
So, you explain that Technical Support is
IT, that it encompass a variety of technical issues outside of computer viruses, and that computer viruses had absolutely no relation to the kind of viruses that carried diseases. Now imagine that rather than doing some research and taking a good hard look at my presumptions, I double down and claim that I wouldn't be caught dead lending my computer to a racket like that, that Tech Support was obviously
different because they removed rogue programs, not computer viruses, and cite...let's say this article
as demonstrating that computer viruses were not functionally different than biological viruses because otherwise how could a computer virus cross into the biological realm?
Now I want you to think long and hard about how frustratingly and stubbornly ignorant hypothetical me is being in that exchange. And I want you to understand that you are being every bit as ignorant about Marketing as hypothetical me was about IT. It's frustrating not because I think I know your spending habits. It's frustrating because you're spouting nonsense in what is by all appearances a vain effort to talk yourself up. Moreover, it's frustrating because you stubbornly refuse to rectify that problem when people point out the deficiencies in your knowledge, with the evident thrust being that you believe your instincts and perceived intuition are superior to actually learning and applying the subject.
