So the fact that word 6 has drivers to read word 97 and beyond files
is something "most people" cant grasp? Or is it that "most people" are
sheep and like to stand in fields all day and bleet?

Maybe these are the same "most people" who dig waching commericals that
bleet Next on Jerry Springer "You put out products but Im too dumb to use

Or maybe its just that even the best educated well spelling people
somethimes like to pretned they are Macho Man Randy Savage yelling down on
the corwds "HOGAN...Im coooooming to get ya "

:most people ----just say no
