Normally I wouldn't give this much of a blog post over to a reader; it probably violates my contract with InfoWorld -- or would, if that cocktail napkin hadn't dissolved a long time ago. But I thought it was a) a hoot, and b) a very telling example of how totally wrapped up people can become in a drama like this, even a fake one, when the media gets saturated with it. They feel compelled to talk to somebody about it, even if it's just an anonymous online support tech.
