Actually, I thought 'Outhouse' was quite funny, hadn't heard that one
before, and it's so visually apt: the place with all the big stinkers

Certainly we are all threatened by it. Out* are virus motors; the
viruses can't hurt me, but they still consume machine resources
and time to clear them out of my mailbox. Out* are produced by
the evil company who actively tries to make everyone helpless,
stupid, and militantly ignorant; and those products and attitudes
help pave the way for things like the CBDTPA
( http://www.eff.org/IP/SSSCA_CBDTPA/ ). If this is not
threatening, what is?
