We soon grew tired of people writing in with ridiculous technical questions.
We grew tireder of continually fobbing them off with a polite "We only know about games. We wouldn't use Workbench if the lives of our favourite aunties depended upon it."
We grew more tireder still of explaining that we would refuse to helpfully answer ridiculous technical questions. Still the letters poured in.
"How do I connect my CD32 to a printer?" for example.
So we decided to print them anyway, but answer them in such a facetious and abusive way that people would hopefully stop of their own accord.
"Why not try gouging your eyes out with a fork?" for example.
It didn't work. And then Colin The Publisher made us stop doing it.
