Call me a curmudgeon but...

... it seems to me a terrible indictment of society that User Friendly gets published in book form, rather than earning its perpetrator some badly needed therapy.

If you look at it today (Monday) then today's strip is, I think, a very good example. This is just not funny, it is preaching to the choir in a sad and obsessive way, as it has been in the same vein for years now.

I am in general in favour of just ignoring such trivial annoyances in life, but the books are published by O'Reilly, therefore one cannot avoid seeing them in Blackwells if one looks at the O'Reilly books there.
