Sorry about the grammatical error. Thanks for fixing it. Researcher 10:47, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

question: The term now commonly refers to those acting with foresight and insights far beyond the comprehension of most other folks around. -- I thought a Luddite was someone who did *not* act with foresight and insight beyond comprehension. I though people who disliked and actively avoided technology were the ones termed, "Luddites". help, thanks!  :-)--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot""We are all born mad.

I know. Because I'm here to discredit the growing anti-tech movement, headed by both Trump and Putin. -- Bryan See (talk) 04:59, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Colloquial usages[edit]

There are the colloquial modern usages 'X is a bit of a Luddite - doesn't use (speaker's preferred technology)' and 'I'm no Luddite but... (I can't see the point of this technology/it is making my life more difficult').'

Is it being Luddite to use the term Luddite to describe the modern situation (given that it is two centuries old)? Anna Livia (talk) 10:17, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
