    Am I the only one here who is a little suspicious of the post from a 'demolition engineer' who wants to know how to make a 'bridgewire detonator'? '...like for example how do disposable camera use a flash, …."
    Is MI-6 phishing? FSB? CIA?, Al-Qaeda maybe?
    What the heck kind of an explosives engineer needs to come to a website like this for detonator specifics?
    I know the thread was closed, but sheez, ….

    They wouldn't be that obvious, would they?

    Heck, I don't know.
    Would it be that improbable that government agencies might want to see what websites offered 'demolition'
    detonation advice to anonymous entities?
    What demolition engineer asks 'neophytes' how a disposable camera flash can be used for that purpose?
    People talk about scammers and phishing expeditions on-line, the request just smells 'phishy' to me.
    ...but maybe that's just paranoia from the Colonies.

    I appreciate helping legit people with electronic-related questions.
    That requestor just seemed awfully suspicious to me.
    I think this is a great forum for helping a lot of people who need help because there are so many
    highly skilled members who go out of their way to share what they know with others.
    I'd hate to see the forum compromised by assisting with what seems to me to be questionable
    posts. I, like I'm sure many other people who frequent this forum, get a lot of valuable information
    from members who often seem to receive little recognition for their valuable insights.
    Congratulations to everyone who offers free-of-charge advice that aids so many of us.
    Thanks davenn for taking a good look at that guy's posts.
