Yeah, well Miss Perspicacia Tick is very quick to judge others who give a
wrong answer here. She also makes it a point to constantly badger users with
rude comments. Sounds like a psycho to me.

Here's a few of her helpful comments from the past:

I like that one, Jim is saying he likes top posting and Miss Tick is asking
why he's top posting if he hates it so much. Looney Tunes..........

Let's see some other dumb anrgry comments from her.

I like how her comment is nasty and right to the point to show how smart she
is. She's gotta belittle Jim even though his comment has nothing to do with
the solution. Gee, like maybe he should have downloaded the newest printer
drivers from Lexmark.

Not only is she an expert in english but her you know what doesn't stink and
she hates all AMERICANS because our leader can speak properly. This is
brilliant. This is brilliant. I suppose that we Americans are supposed to
hate all English people because Boy George was a gay heroin addict.

In the thread that you stored (i.e., Missing memory on slave drive?
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics/browse_thread/thread/8b3fa281c7d1ec5e )
, I absolutely loved the exchange regarding the meaning of
PAL.....especially MPT's remark stamped Feb 21, 3:31 pm and Colin
Barnhorst's subsequent reply.

There are all types of people in this world.. the world would be dull and
choc full of people unable to help themselves if we were all to say 'good
job, but you were not completely right' even though the person may be
completely wrong..

You also have to remember that different cultures have different views of
what is right, wrong or politically correct/incorrect..

Trust me. This is why I read these postings. Great info and tons of laughs,
it's just that the majority of her postings are extremely angry and negative.
I gotta deal with it all day long but I find that it's better to make people
laugh once in a while. Most of the people she's bashing in here are obviously
novices and in some cases, they don't type too well. If you get past that,
you can actually help people rather than make them walk away from here
thinking people hate them. I work will people from all over the world and
while it maybe frustrating at times, I find it very gratifying to help
someone who doesn't have any idea why the PC is messed up.

Most of us wouldn't have a job if they could figure it out.

I dunno, life is too short.
