Slightly OT but this brings to mind a piece that I just read on BBSpot, a 
humor site. Excerpt:

"Gator, an insidious, ubiquitous software program that helps users surf the 
Internet by storing passwords and popping up banner ads has come under fire 
for its annoying and allegedly deceptive features. Beyond the pop-up ads 
and difficult uninstalls, there have been reports of even more annoying 
features of the software.
. . .
"[Gator marketing representative] continued, "We also take exception to the 
reports that Gator is difficult to install. We list in our readme.txt file 
the simple steps required to remove the program. The first step requires a 
program called fdisk which every user has on their computer system."

Seems like typical technical support these days, doesn't it? <w>
