Here is a sad story. click here I know people write suicide notes but a Powerpoint presentation seem more than a little sad.

When somebody writes a sucide note on paper would you call that misuse?

It was his way he wanted to tell everybody.

It was a very sad story.

The Onion is not a serious site, it is a joke site that tries to make 'humorous' sketches serious. It is a mickey-take ;-))))

the whole thing is very sad; especially that the Project Managger felt unable to share this with someone

as to "misuse of computer" ; that to me is irrelevent in this instance; am looking at the deeper issues here ::(((

if, as some above posters suggest, it is a "micky-take", then in utterly "bad-taste":(

This was not a funny joke whatso ever.

That is just such a horrible thing to joke about.

The Onion has been going for years and is the American equivalent of Punch but with a current theme that tends to ridicule the way in which people view things and how seriously some people can be. I have been reading it for a couple of years and find it highly amusing. Putting it in context, they tend to lambast current beliefs and mind sets, for this it is priceless.

Excellent site....it's in my bookmarks.

The fact that this has been taken seriously is a sad reflection on the way we work these days.How long before we have to send a Powerpoint presentation to the F.E. canvassing to become a member of the forum????? ;o{

Makeing someone who has lost touch with reality and commited suicide the subject of ridicule is pretty sick and I can see no humour in it

It is made up, the guy is not real..... /eyes raise. Anyone who has had to live through terminally dull PP presentations will see what the Onion are getting at.
