DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!
Tech Support Pits column from Dear Webby's Humor Letter of

Tech Support Pits:
From Jessie=== Dear Webby I keep getting emails from Topica Customer Care wanting me to update my information. Is this correct? Do I need to fill this out to continue receiving some email subscriptions? Is Dear Webby one of them? I don't like putting all of the information they want down unless it's something I really want and I'm not sure which ezines are connected with it. I don't want to miss Dear Webby, but a couple of the others wouldn't be worth it. Thanks for all of the technical help. I've learned a lot from it, but keep it up, please. There's SO MUCH more I need to learn. Jessie Dear Jessie First, I am not and never will be associated in any way with Topica. Whether you fill out their spam order form or not, will not make any difference whatsoever to your Humor Letter subscription. I can tell from your sexy fonts that you are cute, and I know that you are smart, because you are a Humor Letter subscriber. That's all I need to know. Keep in mind that those Topica spam order forms or questionaires are not confidential info for Santa Claus! No matter what they tell you, that info is for targeting spam and junkmail. Period. On Topica's and similar outfit's spam order forms you should always use a disposable hotmail or similar address, never your good address! It's also a good idea to be as creative as possible with the answers. For example, if you tell them you are 12 years old, then they can't legally sell your info to spammers that push porno or viagra. And you are not a prime target for back alley bank mortgages. If they have an area for comments, tell them how you feel, deep down inside, about spam, jalapeno yogurt, junkmail, vanilla tofu, etc., and don't worry about being diplomatic. Have FUN! DearWebby
