The most annoying things to me about computer ignorance is PC = Windows
... which is a pretty nifty way to get this thread back on topic, if you think about it. PC=windows and internet=MSIE.
Bill, I don't remember Q-- I'm sure I am chronologically old enough, but was not, er, a computer geek at the time. But now that you bring it up I do remember AOL's long list of Reserved Names that nobody could use except moderators. I knew a few people who were barred from using their own real names for this reason. Especially if your real name was anything even remotely Slavic, for some reason. Possibly AOL owned the letter Z.
