    The real WTF is that you forgot to claim your own "fist post", which makes me think your upto some shenanigans.. but whatever it may be i must say it was a brillant post, worthy of a picture on a wooden table..

    Yeah, I don't know why I said that.... I was probably just upset that there weren't some better ones...

    The "Got Ya" popup seems "fake" though, and some of the others I just don't see as WTFs, or at least not big ones...

    the lenovo one.... whoopteedoo....

    The AVG exception: oh no, it didn't give a detailed description... let's look at all of your error dialogues and see if all of them give detailed descriptions

    yahoo toolbar smart tools: in case you haven't noticed, 99.9% of "surfing toolbars" are useless spyware/adbots. Go figure that they would make it difficult to get rid of/turn off the product.

    I'm pretty sure that this is a satire.  13 years of experience puts it at Mosaic's first release date.  Plus, the image on the aboutus page looked like he was a pharmasist, so I looked up the name in google and found: http://www.adorebeauty.com.au/mensgrooming/brand_anthonylogistics.asp which oddly enough has the same picture.  Normally satire sites don't copy an image and a real name at the same time, but this one did.

    I think you're wrong.  It's just their old site ... now they're big time!
