Hi David, >> Is there an island of trolls like this in the Windows Mobile world? I haven't run across it yet. << They seem to be everywhere. However, in the Windows world I'll paraphrase Will Roger's famous quote when asked if he belonged to an organized party. He said, "I don't belong to an organized party. I'm a Democrat." So, in the Windows world, they aren't organized. They just belong to "Trolls, Inc."
