In the words of Bob Dobbs ... "You know how dumb the average guy is?  Well,
half of 'em are dumber than that!"

Easy-to-use computers and software have allowed all sorts of folks to use
them.  Folks who wouldn't have been able to use a computer some years ago,
and wouldn't have if they could have, because the mass market hadn't arrived
and they'd have had no one to talk to.  They aren't geeks, and don't have
geeky friends.  If you had e-mail in 1981, the folks on the other end of the
wire were pretty geeky, 'cause only a hard-core geek could make the stuff

Now, it's all simple enough that everyone has a computer and "does" e-mail,
and half of 'em are, well, you know.
