The problem is that the people that should be insulted because:

1. they did not read what Tom van Baak wrote ( Those of you newcomers 
to Time-Nuts should expect  to wait until the first batch has been 
shipped and TAPR is ready for you... AND ...I will advise you when 
the official TAPR.org Thunderbolt ordering web page is ready.)

2. they think the whole world is interested in the fact that they 
would like one too.

They are probably so thick that they will be very hard to insult.

In the mean time everybody here has to put up with all these stupid 
me-toos because we can not filter on the subject as this would 
possibly mean missing the real announcement by Tom van Baak.

So I fully sympathize with people thinking of creative ways to punish 
those me-toos.
