    *sigh*  See, comments like this is why I think you're full of it.  I did
state clearly that not leaving the port open for the entire world to access
when the entire world has no business accessing it is a problem.  Since 80 is
for serving up web pages TO THE WORLD it would make no sense closing it down
TO THE WORLD, now would it?

    Then I wonder how you do it since it obviously isn't by using it.  I'm
glad I read you right from the onset.  Have fun scoring points and spreading
bad advice.
