Mathematically speaking W, the ratio for internet whinging, is the result of dividing the time to process a statement by the length of the given statement, that is:

W = (time to process / length of statement).

Given that all internet arguments are circular this can be represented geometrically where processing time is constantly revolving and the length of the statement is the diameter of the circle.

Hence there are no integers t or l for which t*l is an integer, therefore w is irrational.

Consequently it is impossible to be fully precise about the length of time for any given statement to produce a whinge and it can only be given to an appropriate degree of accuracy.
