Per Webster: Stupid 1. Slow to learn or understand; obtuse. 2. Tending to make poor decisions or careless mistakes. 3. Marked by a lack of intelligence or care; foolish or careless: a stupid mistake. 4. Dazed, stunned, or stupefied. 5. Pointless; worthlesss: a stupid or foolish person......the definition not only applies to Trevor Harwell's victims but some of the people on this thread as well. Not being knowledgeable of a appliance one purchases and uses is a pretty lame excuse to use when something goes wrong. Why do you think they come with Operating Manuals and Product Information Guides? Hell, just look at some of the posts on this site where people are having problems with their receivers and are asking for help. In some cases they could have rectified the problem themselves had they read the Operators Manual that came with their receiver. It's one thing to be the victim of a crime when the situation is completely out of your control. It's another when one's stupidity is a major contributing factor!
