Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I know people who have their own business website, that when asked "what web browswer do you use?" their answer is "Google".
One must assume that it has been the issue at some time in the past.
You might have felt bad with the answer he gave you, but I feel bad for him...
Often that answer he gave, is actually helpful to people contacting him.
