I recommend the following reading. Why Things Bite Back Edward Tenner If it can go wrong, it will--thus Murphy's Law. Science journalist Edward Tenner looks more closely at this eternal verity, named after a U.S. Air Force captain who, during a test of rocket-sled deceleration, noticed that critical gauges had been improperly set and concluded, "If there's more than one way to do a job and one of those ways will end in disaster, then somebody will do it that way." Tenner concurs, and he gives us myriad case studies of how technological fixes often create bigger problems than the ones they were meant to solve in the first place. The indiscriminate use of antibiotics, by way of example, has yielded hardier strains of bacteria and viruses that do not respond to pharmaceutical treatment; the wide-scale use of air conditioning in cities has raised the outdoor temperature in some places by as much as 10 degrees, adding stress to already-taxed cooling systems; the modern reliance on medical intervention to deal with simple illnesses, to say nothing of the rapidly growing number of elective surgeries, means that even a low percentage of error (one patient in twenty-five, by a recent estimate) can affect increasingly large numbers of people. Tenner examines what he deems the "unintended consequences" of technological innovation, drawing examples from everyday objects and situations. Although he recounts disaster after painful disaster, his book makes for curiously entertaining, if sometimes scary, reading. --Gregory McNamee The Logic of Failure Dietrich Dorner, et al That's Not What We Meant to Do: Reform and Its Unintended Consequences in the Twentieth Century Steven M.

I don't think he's really Scott Nudds. Mr Nudds is a very fireproof troll, he wouldn't stop after only some tenth of messages. It's probabily a schoolboy that has read about this Mr. Nudds' adventures in books, and now tries to emulate it. Simply opening a "s_nudds" account on hotmail means nothing.

Hey, go easy on the guy. At least let him have his mirror. You never know: His mirror may be the only place where anyone ever looks at him. After all, it seems he has lots and lots of places where nobody listens to him. And he seems unable to stop creating more such places. His lack of people skills could be due to a genetic disease, mental defect, or teenage bedwetting. You never know. Don't assume there is even the slightest chance he could ever become "responsible" or "conversational". Just be glad that he keeps trying, no matter how hopeless the cause. He should serve as an inspiration to all people beset with severe life challenges. It is far better to simply assume he is doing the best he can with what little he's got. If you were in a similar situation, with limited mental stability and minimal emotional control, wouldn't you lash out at the world? Would it be inexcusable for anyone so crippled to do so? Come on, have a heart. So, let him rant as he chooses, and don't flame him back. Be charitable. Turn the other cheek. If you can't cope with the pain of reading his words, then don't discourage him by responding with negativity. If you must, silently plonk his bits to the bit bucket. I admit, I'm not strong enough to handle his diatribes, so I have had to acknowledge my own weakness in this regard, and have resigned myself to plonking his posts. There is absolutely no need to reply to his rude abusive outbursts with the same. His lack of control does not excuse, and should never encourage, any similar behavior on our part. -BobC

I have found that the perverse world view of those who resort to your kind of self censorship Mr. Cunningham, much like anyone else who regularly engages in self deception. Closed minds are dead minds. Particularly if they are inferior to begin with.
