on Help with this STUPID computer!

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place here. On one hand I found the "closet" comment amusing and it was fairly harmless in and of it self. I've heard and seen very similar comments made over the years as a technologist so was surprised the post was recommended so much. Then again I shouldn't be as I realize I am in a unique position to have gotten that punch line long before it would be understood by others.

On the other hand I am somewhat disappointed that those who by their own admission post here often (as an altruistic act if the intent of these boards is correct) chose to use sarcasm and insult along with their "support".

I suppose it just backs up the idea that anything free always comes at a price
