- people who use M$ as a way to put down Microsoft Products, but whose experience of the same is limited to 9x/Me or even worse DOS

- everyone who thinks that YY/MM/DD or MM/DD/YY or DD/MM/YY or pretty well anything other than YYYY/MM/DD is a sane way to write a readable date stamp
- for every person who says "we can't do that, we've never done it before"
- who --'d you without a good reason ;-)
- people who think that they should endlessly profit from a lucky few years of intellectual activity when whatever they built was only on the shoulders of countless unsung others before them
