    I like to imagine people doing that in an every day conversation. It’s ridiculous. No one would ever talk to them lol

      Seems like a friendly enough response was given to your comment and you automatically assumed they were only interested in saying you’re wrong.

      Having a discussion is not “proving everyone wrong”

        That was my point, thanks.

              I see what you mean too. I think a lot of people on Lemmy are just terminally online and so they don’t have regular conversations with real people all that often.

              What are you talking about? You are the one who ranted about people proving you wrong.

              You made a big deal out of someone being perfectly pleasant replying to you.

              Your viewpoint of anyone responding to you with anything other than agreement as an attack seems to be the real issue.

              I’m not upset, you shouldn’t be either, it’s not that big of a deal.

        Especially when they were wrong. They’re obviously going to pass along any actual cost they have one way or another.

        That’s not what’s shady or what’s being addressed. It’s the $60 ***(plus $100 in unlisted fees we literally won’t even let our support provide or estimate on signup) to lie about prices that’s the problem.

          I recommend reading either the quoted text, or the article. Preferably both.

            I did. “Passing on costs” is entirely irrelevant to everything.

            The entire point of all of this is that service providers are using nebulous fee structures to lie about pricing. That’s the entire thing. There is nothing else.

      Um, do you only have conversations with people who agree with you?

        People in real life don’t nitpick every word you say.

          No, that’s fair. But also, when you’re conversing in “real life”, people probably aren’t paying that much attention to every word you say and don’t care enough to “nitpick”.
