Default Network switch + Leaves = BAD lol

So I was reading reviews on a D-Link switch. As I was skimming down the page, I saw "buyer beware" and it read:

Pros: Fast connections. Internets at full speed.

Cons: I placed this switch on top of some dry leaves and it caught on fire. The fire department had to be called in. I nearly lost my apartment.

Other Thoughts: Keep away from anything flammable.

I really wanna know who would put a switch on dry leaves? I can understand paper or even a piece of clothing, but LEAVES? Geeze there are some crazy people out there.

Its the last one on the page.

I used to know a person on a different forum called "BigJilm." He was a HUGE joker. In the case that this is him, he is definitely messing around. BigJilm isn't a common name, either.
