A very shrewd observation. I like it.

I hope they have an improved spell checker than the one you rely on. You are
a bit of a joke matey. Your reliance on "technology" let you down the other
day. When I post a letter I get one delivered. When you post to a newsgroup
you get two delivered. Hardly an efficiency improvement.

You are just about the best example of what is wrong with the modern world.
Totally arrogant without due cause, spend your life on a pc, probably very
lonely but remain smug in your isolation, and if I remember your website
photograph correctly, very over weight!

I have not had cause to use this modern expression before but in your case
it is long overdue; Get a life! Get some fresh air! Failing that, get an
education!

Not quite sure who this is addressed to, but it's surely not me as my
spell checker works fine here normally. I spend a lot of time on a
computer, as it's my work as well as some leisure. I could do with losing
a few pounds but I'm not very overweight. I've just been outside for a
walk, and I'm quite well educated.
