For some reason the Y2K Pro name always reminds me of that urban legend I used to hear in high school some 25 years ago relating to narcotics agents. Supposedly, if you asked them a direct question "Are you a narc?" they could not answer it falsely (although they could try to avoid answering). Y2K Pro, are you a shill?
