You're a person who hates people when it comes to computers?
(Remember, "misanthrope" comes from the Greek words "miso" and "anthropos", which are "hate" and "man (person)", respectively...)

Yes, I understood what he meant. I was simply being pedantic (if there's one place I figure I can be pedantic about language, it's among a bunch of writers), though trying to be less-than-serious about it.
But the definition of the word still stands. I found the juxtaposition of using a word that explicitly refers to human beings being used in reference to computers to be amusing.
