    Hello Bill.....

    What do you think it would be like if Bill Gates became the Webmaster here?

    What changes would chairman Bill bring with him?

    Perhaps the mechanism that filters out swear words would be extended to include Java, Sun, Borland, Netscape…

    The Linux board would not last long. And poor stealth would have to pay for the right to poll.



    What are your thoughts?

    Obviously, we'd have to pay to post a message. We'd have to pay
    for technical support every time the board crashed and we
    wanted to know why./

    The board would always stall if he was webmaster...he would create some super board and then downgrade it for all of us, and then in the process of downgrading it for us, he would throw in some stuff to make it stall...

    Bill Gates abbv. ->BG
    Gates Technology abbv. ->GT

    BG also stands for Bad Garbage.
    GT also stands for Garbage Truck.

    Therefore: Throw your BG on the streat and let the GT pick it up
