    Oh yes. We should also ban pencil+paper, telephones and speech in general as these are frequently used to commit crimes and lure innocent people into dangerous situations.

    Great link BTW.. Shows the crappiness of Live Search and the incompetence of news writers :)

    A little common sense goes a long way.

    There are many youngsters in the forum.

    The idea was not to scare anyone off, but to show how carelessness on the web can be fatal.

    It's a good idea to comment on the links and quotes you paste. Sometimes it is hard to understand what exactly someone meant by a link or a file.

    Okay, I'll keep that in mind.

    Along time ago when I use to live in Texas, I heard on the radio that some guy was in a minivan giving "Examinations and Operations " ( he was pretending to be a doctor ) and people actually went to him and thought he was a real doctor :haha:

    . . . I agree with Nodsu completely on this one.

    You are, of course, right.

    One doesn't even need a phone (or any other means of communication) to walk plumb into trouble.

    The ice-cream man, or the benign old neighbor, could end up doing something freaky some day.

    Those who have good sense, will most likely remain safe, and those without it won't heed any well meant word of advice anyway.
