    I am afraid to admit that I was not offended at this.
    I am afraid to admit that I downloaded the code and ran it.
    I am afraid to admit that I followed someone else's lead and edited out the lines that requested a name, so that I could get results faster.
    I am afraid to admit just how funny I found this, dare I say it, "puerile", utility.

    I am just afraid.
