TR'S HOT TOPIC: IT IS RUN BY ILLITERATE, IDIOTIC MEN

The question of the week seems to be " Is IT degenerating into a field
where idiots rule?" The prevailing notion that most IT pros can't speak
or type properly dovetails nicely with this theme, but the related idea
that IT has been and forever will be a male dominated profession does
lend itself to some interesting, ironic, and often comical conclusions.
The solution, it seems, is to elect a new IT Queen from amongst the
TechRepublic membership, which will solve all out tech-related
problems.
