Some of us think the endless confusion caused by the conflicting 
definitions of kilo, mega, and giga is stupid. I won't call your 
opinions stupid, but I will ask you to stop spouting them as fact. Who 
do you recognize as legitimate authority beyond your own swollen head 
anyway? Perhaps you invented the SI prefixes yourself?
