To whom it may concern on the list,
Shut the fuck up, you bunch of belligerent, whiney dorks. No one gives a
rat's ass if you get hacked. Actually, I spoke too soon, someone must care,
since *someone* already told you to fucking upgrade. Someone call the
goddam Guinness Book, we've assembled the largest group of crybabies in
history. And the absolutely stunning thing is that after I post this, the
bitching will grow. Hypocrisy > *
To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of script kiddies,
Or to take arms against a sea of hostile dorks,
And by opposing end them? To reboot: to shutdown;
-a little slice of reality
p.s. Chris, this was not a post directed at you in particular.
