I got a lengthy phone call from one of our more interesting clients. He'd heard some misinformation (from the usual source) about how I was planning on taking control of his website and destroying his business. He told me that if this happened, he'd take a pick axe and put it through my head. He hastened to add that this wasn't a threat, merely a statement of fact. I've met this person a few times and have no doubts about his sincerity. I tried to reassure him that I had no intention of touching his website, but he seemed unconvinced.
It's entertaining being on someone's List of Death. I never realised that a system administrator might need a body guard.
