@Wowfood - Re: Don't quote me on this
Good point. In fact that is the way I first read it (despite the punctuation) because to take it the way El Reg has interpreted it would make it so daft that it was beyond me for a moment.
Wowfood wrote :- "But I think the guy is just an idiot who doesn't make himself clear. [He is reported as saying :] 'Whether it’s Bitnet, The Tor – which is 90 per cent of the Internet – peer-to-peer sharing, or the streaming capability worldwide' "
Since I cannot believe the guy could possibly be as idiotic as reported here, this is worth a second thought. After all, those dashes, which make it idiotic, are punctuation marks put in by a journalist or some other listener. Or perhaps the guy just caught his breath at the wrong moment.
So let's try the dashes in a different place : perhaps what he actually said was, or at least meant to say, with the dashes in a diferent place :-
"Whether it’s Bitnet, The Tor – which is 90 per cent of the Internet peer-to-peer sharing - or the streaming capability worldwide"
Still pretty silly, but an order or two of magnitude less silly.
