I did not suggest that Internet comments are an accurate cross-section of public opinion. I merely responded to a comment which stated the dismissive attitude I'm referring to is "complete hype made up by the SJWs" by pointing to examples of what I mean.

You are talking about a field in the real world where you have to look at a person and say something, then supporting it by saying someone on the internet said XXX. They are not the same. also you killed your own point by linking to a joke, even admitted that people were taking it as a joke.

I have determined that everyone in Detroit is a politicians, this is based on many many articles that describe people in the city being elected to positions. a sample of 100 out of over 500,000 does not hold true as a statement about the other 499,900. Yes a statement is easily backed up with some examples but you can not state that a group is one way or the other unless you can back up that more then 1/2 of it is that way.

Yes, it was a joke in the sense that it attempts to parody the type of person being made fun of. It's not a joke in the sense of being facetious. Many jokes are not intended to be taken facetiously.

To your other point, I think I covered that pretty well in the comment you are responding to, but I'll reiterate. I'm not claiming it corresponds statistically to either the belief of the general population or that of computer camps. I was responding to a comment that claimed this attitude does not exist whatsoever -- that the notion is completely fabricated by SJWs. I pointed to examples showing that it obviously does exist.
