The term "keyboard malfunction" was used jokingly...nobody really thinks you're having hardware problems.
Yeah, you're probably right. I just sometimes cringe at the name, which is why I tend to misspell it with currency signs. It has become more of an impulse than anything else.

Oh come on. I'm no fan of Microsoft, but equating them with the Klan is beyond ridiculous and only devalues your arguments. Try sticking to criticizing them instead of calling them names.
