During the time when I was a hiring manager, I openly rejected candidates who abused the ratio of quoted messages to new text in their posts.

I thought I would do it before others did. Now you'll be revoking my access here.

Guess my employment prospects are well and truly shot now, too. ;)

I was actually picking on Ladyhawke and her 21:1 quote-to-post ratio on September 6. But if you guys want to mea-culpa yourselves into oblivion, go ahead :)

My neighbor upstairs has a gas-powered vacuum cleaner.

I see this specific misspelling a lot:

http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/76-gnome/283-gnome-shell-install-extension-command-line-script

Just above '2. Automatic Installation Script', you see this line:

"If you forget it, you will loose your terminal prompt !"

Mind you, there are worse things in the world to unleash upon the world than a terminal prompt. My father's ex-wives, his current one, volcanic activity, American politics, pollen, and crippling arthritis strike me as being worse than terminal prompts to unleash upon an unsuspecting world. But then, I'm a bit more familiar with most command-line driven interfaces than your average person, so I could probably get around in such situations. Loosing a terminal prompt on folks who have never experienced one would likely lead to an extreme lack of productivity.

Heh.  I knew a guy who bought what he thought was an awesome domain name, and was waiting for the day when some gaming or gambling site would offer him a lot of money for it.  He wondered why no one ever approached him about it.

winloose.com

If he registered winlose.com along with winloose.com it would not have been a bad idea, people make that mistake often.

That'd work for a porn site, though.
