Murry,

If I'd sent the "Amazon and Anti-Semitism" or "Rat Droppings" or "Hewlett-Packard/Gateway Merge - Free Computers" scams, I could understand your reaction. I believe that the folks here on the AAPL Board are sophisticated enough to recognize that it was humor. Check the date. Check the guy's name.

It's April Fools Day tomorrow! Lighten up!

It's that time of year again, folks. Be sure to disconnect your computer or all your data will be washed away when they flush the circuits.)
