The Five Nigerian Gangs Behind Most Craigslist Buyer Scams

gargleblast Re:"GaRgLeDoUcHe"'s projecting again (160 comments)

Err, no. No Pete, you got me. What was I thinking? Diagnosing personality disorders without a license. So - here's what you're gonna do. Print out all our correspondence, take it to your doctor (a good one, mind) and say "WTF is it with this gargledouche prick?" He'll take it from there. And I'm terrified of the consequences, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Don't delay. Peace out.

gargleblast Tough problem (436 comments)

This is a tough problem.

gargleblast Re:A little scary (188 comments)

Demanding membership lists is definitely beyond the pale.

Steve Ballmer Authored the Windows 3.1 Ctrl-Alt-Del Screen

gargleblast Re:Amiga (169 comments)

If a system can display an error message, it is not messed up enough.

Yeah. A really good Amiga crash would randomly poke the graphics and sound chips and the machine would look and sound as if it were about to explode.

Steve Ballmer Authored the Windows 3.1 Ctrl-Alt-Del Screen

gargleblast Re:"Stuff that matters" (169 comments)
