It's unfortunate that you were flamed, but these warnings probably aren't
appropriate for this list. These types of warnings pop up all the time, and
a fraction of them are valid.
I believe you have good intentions, but there are other places for readers
to find these warnings (alt.folklore.urban comes to mind), and I don't think
warnings should be posted here unless they are warnings about thinkpads..
