    I thought wetwork meant something else, come to find out it just means paying while underwater.

    The last entry suggests more WTF underneath...

    After all, what else could a path like /home2/mariusba/... lead to?

    Drake needs to learn what the Oxford comma is. The question as written is grammatically correct.

    Doesn't matter how correct the question is written when the answers don't match it.

    Sounds like that last purchase put Zeke drowning in debt.

    @Chronomium: Which means you too don't understand the Oxford comma.

    The sentence means in effect: "Would you like to enter the licensing details part of our app? Answer with Yes or No."

    Admittedly it's poor UI design because so few people, especially Americans, will parse the sentence correctly. the user are NOT choosing between the alternatives of active/deactivate vs. view. They are choosing between doing any/all of activate, deactivate, or view vs. doing nothing at all.

    Or at least that's what it means if the developers themselves understand the Oxford comma. Which is frankly fairly likely if they're an Indian offshoring agency.

    Well, the Antivirus is right: XXX issues can lead to low disk space: get rid of Gigabytes of your p0rn collection!

    Do you wish to activate/deactivate licensing, or see your current licensing data?

    Drake needs to learn what the Oxford comma is. The question as written is grammatically correct.

    The question is grammatically correct but that's not an Oxford comma. There are only two items in the list.

    I agree that the question is also semantically correct but unhelpful. It's like that joke about the people in the helicopter who ask the people on the building where they are.

    Avast is just saying it found a bunch of porn on the user's computer infested with malware, as it sometimes is if you get it from the wrong places. Most of it is only XX-rated, but some of it is XXX.

  • (nodebb) in reply to Raj

    You need a hyphen between "Oxford" and "comma" there. /sarcasm //but true

    So you're saying I need to eat my words?

  • (nodebb)

    Oxford comma can only be used in a list of 3 or more items. If they'd put a comma between "activate" and "deactivate", the comma before "or view" could be an Oxford comma.

    But since they said "Activate/deactivate", the comma makes "view" a separate choice, and this is an either-or question, not a yes-no question.

    So next time I ask an attractive member of the opposite sex out on a date, i just need to ask 'Would like like to go for a meal, or to the cinema?' and 'No' isn't an option, That's cool.

  • (nodebb) in reply to guest

    Or you could ask an attractive member of the same sex out on a date. No is the never the option.

    Looks like Bellons' computer has its locale set to one using Roman numerals. Apparently there are coincidentally 20 issues of each type, a total of 30 of which are exclamation-point worthy.

    The use of XX.XX MB to represent 10.10 MB is new to me, though.

  • eric bloedow (unregistered)

    oh, i use Avast...and if you click that "resolve" button, it tries to SELL you the Premium version for 29.95 A MONTH. quite annoying.

    Looks like Bellons' computer has its locale set to one using Roman numerals.

    Exactly. Although given that some of those locales only have ten months in the year, with a total of 304 days, we're sure to see some interesting calendar WTFs as well.
