Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

FoTW It appears that the now-legendary Rufus - he of Gadspot.com's battling tech support who called one customer a "a pain in the butt" then reserved the right to "server" him "for being mean" - has has become a torchbearer for obstreperous dictionary-dodgers worldwide.

Yes indeed, try this anonymous recent comment to our original story, which displays the same command of the English language which has now guaranteed Rufus a place in net history:

Support good but you don't know to understand that. If you realize that it may that be supported problem to read, maybe you should shut your head and be pheasant.

Magnificent. We feel it's only a matter of time before "shut your head and be pheasant" makes it onto some form of apparel, which is exactly what happened to Rufus's words of wisdom - now available on limited edition boxer shorts and thongs.

For the record, the chap who knocked up this tech-support underwear says he'll donate all proceeds to the war on cancer. Some good has come of this lamentable tale. ®
