Too much fun — Who’s “Dumber” NOW?

In Just for Fun, I noted that some person or persons unnamed might be foolish enough to think I’m “dumber”, based on my choice of browser and the results of some silly study.

It turns out that users of Firefox, Chrome, etc. have been “hoaxed“.

So the question arises:  when users of non-IE browsers were so willing to believe this report, did that merely provide an example of what is known as confirmation bias?  Or is there a darker, more hideous explanation?  Could their susceptibility actually prove the direct opposite of the claims of the alleged “study”?

I fear if I continue to discuss this I might end up having too much fun.

    Btw, gloating is not very becoming for a pastor. Just sayin’.
