I've had about a dozen flames on this one. Interesting, as I don't
recall ever having earned more than a single flame on any other
message before. And even that only happened once or twice.
To answer the questions and aspersions that were cast:
1. No, that's not what my mother does for a living.
2. Yes, I am literate.
3. Yes, we do have CB in South Africa. In fact, my guess is that CB
in this country is more lawless than in the US. I base this on
the fact that there is very little enforcement of communications
law, just as there is very little enforecement of most laws around
I don't think I misunderstood nor underestimated the problem. That's
not what I was commenting on. I was commenting about the suggestions
that were forthcoming on how to deal with it. In some cases, they
were obviously tongue-in-cheek. In other cases, I'm not so sure.
I can only conclude that, of the two possibilities I suggested, the
latter must be the truth.
