The Internet is not yet all pervasive

I was sitting at my desk here at work when a temp worker came out of the elevator and looked at my computer monitor. The screen was displaying a list of comments from a friend's LJ. A number of the icons had plain head shots of people.

The temp worker, an old man, said, "Ya got em all listed, eh?" He pointed in the general direction of the monitor.

"Got em all listed?" I replied.

"There on the tv." he said, pointing again at the computer monitor.

Now speak his part out loud with a gravelly country voice. First of all, who does he think I have listed? I don't know whether to be frightened, annoyed, sympathetic to the man's lack of knowledge, or if I should just jump off the roof.
