That would just keep the browse war going... go over to those 
people and reason with them!!!

Maybe they also need brose master..?

Hmmm.. I heard someone once say that "Dennis and Richie never anticipated
users wanting to blow up eachother", but now I've seen administrators 
wanting to do the same.

BTW: I've seen some _bad_ cases of browse-wars, where WinNT suddenly
decided to join the war, won it, then forgot it ever won it, then it 
kept looping. [until I manually forced the user to disable browsing]
