No, I hear you, tongue in cheek or otherwise. In the early 1980s, I
*loved* working with other people on IBM PCs, Apples, etc. because
in order to do so, you simply could not be an idiot. Same with
getting online onto a BBS: No idiots. Crackpots and opinionated
people, yes, but not idiots. Now that personal computers are
appliances, idiots abound.

Luckily, there are lists like this, and others.
