    A couple of days ago I got a call on my direct line….

    (gah. time to take my name out of the phonemail system)

    User: “I have a problem with Usenet news…”

    Me

    : “Um, sir, you shouldn’t be calling me in the first place, send mail

    to support–”

    User: “But this is *very* important, and may be affecting a lot of

    subscribers!

    Please listen to me”

    Me

    : (Well, he *did* say please) “Okay, what’s the problem?”

    User: “There’s nothing interesting on Usenet.

    It’s all mindless crap,

    and as one of the larger Internet providers, you *must* take liability

    for this!”

    AIEEEEEEE!

    This is the point where I transferred it to one of the more

    diplomatic types, before I took the airhorn and placed it too close to

    the phone.
