Really? Who made this screaming bullshit up? My eyes haven't been right since I bought my first TFT monitor, and I've run into several people ONLINE who tell me they can't use LCD monitors AT ALL. Imagine that; relying on the internet and yet you can't use LCDs. Given how many people would simply forget about using computers if they had such a problem, I expect LCD screens make a LOT of peoples' eyes bleed. I think you're blindly believing _lies_ spewed by monitor manufacturers.

Pancake... I'm sorry to say this but I get a "wtf moment" from nearly every post you send to this list. I realize that's not constructive criticism... You may want to consider how information flows especially how and when it it is possible to determine truth from lies. I don't mean how data flows; I mean how _meaning_ gets passed from human to human, and what can be lost in transit, especially when the sending humans are working on behalf of a megacorp (or government, for that matter).
