Paul, I totally agree with your comments. As a Corporate ISP, this is
exactly how I expect the sales team to describe to the management of a
corporation what a *address* is on the web.
Simple things work, why get technical and scare the daylights out of someone
when it is totally unappreciated. For some, today is the first day they will
learn about the Net.
