er...uh..excuse me????

A huge percentage of the .com hierarchy are commercial hardware and/or
software development organizations in the world...While some
commercial service providers have .com addresses, there are thousands
or hundreds of thousands of engineers, scientists, system
administrators etc, etc who post from these accounts...I would hate to
see a couple of dingy posts make anyone think that those posting from
this type of account are less than credible, it just aint so...
