Example Citation:
"[Computer industry] customers are shamed for not being sophisticated enough to recognize that at some unspecified point in the future, the industry will perfect its latest technology and a need for it will reveal itself. While it is shaming rubes, it's also abusing the early adopters of technology—the antirubes." —Geoffrey Rowan
