It seems that in 90% of all posts on this newsgroup. someone tells the
poster to contact the pros. Well, I fully agree. I contact the pros
no matter what I do.
I just contacted my professional therapist and got the OK to post to
this message, after contacting a professional from my phone company to
insure my phone was safe, and I was able to properly and safely use
the telephone to call my therapist. I also called my team of medical
professionals to be sure that my mental and bodily conditions were up
to par to use the internet. Then of course I had to get a crew of
professionals from Microsoft to come to my home and boot my computer
for me. but they told me that I first had to hire a professional
electrician to inspect the outlet this computer derives it's power,
and this electrician had to hire a professional from the electric
company to verify my home was receiving the proper electrical power.
With that all completed, I want to share with you the following
I always hire a pro for EVERYTHING I do. Even if I got to take a
shit, I hire a pro to do it for me. We are all idiots in all ways.
Only the pros can do things safely and correctly. None of us mere
people are capable of doing things ourselves. We are all uneducated
idiots incapable of thinking for ourselves or touching anything,
particularly dangerous tools and the like. We must hire a pro for
anything and everything we do in our lives..... Damn it, I was just
getting into this message and now I got to take a piss. I better call
a pro to handle it for me.... I'll be back after the professional
typist that is typing this message for me calls a professional coffee
service to make him a cup of coffee, and the professional that is
managing my computer software contacts his professional software
programmer, and while I call a professional to help me take my piss,
while my professional bathroom cleaner takes a break, which of course
means he will have to contact his professional break management crew.
Hold on a second, I have to call my professional therapist again to
see if it's OK to send this message......
Y'think that some of those posters are professionals that
see USENET as a threat to their livelihood? And if we
simply share information on how to do something safely,
s/he thinks that they will end up in the poor house?
Increased revenue by spreading fear.
"Our chief weapon is suprise...surprise and fear...fear and
I live in fear ever working day: the fear of being wrong. As a result, I
carry liability insurance but still try to be careful. Being careful reduces
my risk of being wrong, and is expected of me by the state that licenses me.
What interest do I have in making work for another professional in another
state? Some generalized fear of disaster in the hearts of do-it-yourselfer
everywhere? Time to adjust your headgear: http://zapatopi.net/afdb /
The problem could also be reframed:
"It seams that in 90% of all posts on this newsgroup somebody wants to cut
corners without really knowing what they're doing and hope to find some
knowledgeable professional who will give them the go ahead without having
all the facts of the situation in front of them, and for no compensation,
while exposing themselves to liability for faulty advice.
Y'think that some law-breaking cheapskates are looking for cover if they
screw up and their world comes down around their ears?
Decreased accountability by deflecting responsibility."
Discuss amongst yourselves! I'm verklempt!
The Information Highway (Internet) is for sharing: sharing experiences.
When i post a question, iam hoping to find someone that has had the
same expeience . . . then we
"talk". This is called sharing and giving and helping. If a person that
posts a question becomes a helper here on the Information Highway - so
what . . .

Reread my post. I never said it happened here, or that I had links. I said
that there is exposure to liability. If you're really interested though you
can contact my insurer to confirm the threat. (ProDemnity Insurance Company,
The pro's are generally going to be careful in what they say because
professional practice has a way of weeding out the careless. Once in a while
everyone slips up, and there are differences in law from one jurisdiction to
another, but only "fools rush in".

Dear Mr. Michael Bulatovich
The advice you have just given is faulty. So far no one has been sued
for providing faulty advice on this newsgroup. However, since you
have lied to us about this matter, I have no choice but to sue you for
providing faulty, misleading and dishonest information on a public
forum. Therefore, I am charging you under the US Federal penal code
item #204-990-5213.01. You will be served your legal lawsuit
paperwork within the next week, to be hand delivered by your local
police department. I suggest you contact your attorney immediately
because this is going to be an ugly battle and I ALWAYS win every
case. If you so choose, you can pay the sum of $50,000,000.00 in US
currency, and I will drop this case. This information, including the
address of my office, to which you must send you payment, will be
noted on this legal document.
Atty. Jeffery D. Formann
