So true.

I've always thought one of the great things about the Internet in general
is that it makes you aware of people you would never normally have known
even existed.

Of course, one of the bad things about the Internet in general is that it
makes you aware of people you would never normally have known even
existed.

Dumb? Stupid? One who knows nothing about computers? Or a program that
someone wrote to troll usenet? I'm thinking the last as no living human
could be that dense.

Jason, apparently, you have not considered one possibility. Tracker
could be a manager. (grin) Managers can be that dense. LOL

Cheers,

Only in the eyes of their underlings.

The tracker game is to get an account, start a thread
and watch it grow as the usual suspects and the passing
innocents post to it.

From the general content she could not manage a
party in a brewery, even if the mythical 'malicious
hackers' came.

Maybe it is a 'manager' related issue because its about someone
dumb trying to exercise power over others. Or maybe Dr Freud
would say the length of the thread is a penis substitute.

One could understand how one could be vertically
challenged given the visual evidence available.
