Here at TechRepublic, our editors get lots of email--questions, compliments, criticism, and plenty of spam. We do our best to respond. And if we don't have the answer, we try to direct the sender to someone who might, often the TechRepublic community.
But sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we just can't decipher what the sender is asking for. And other times, what they're asking for is illegal, impractical, or just bizarre.
I've collected some of the more interesting ones, and put them into a TR Dojo gallery. I've blacked out the names and email addresses to protect the innocent (or clueless). Perhaps you can decipher some of the truly confusing ones, like the only below.
