Misquotation.  Why am I not surprised?

The areas where PDF is useful are perfectly obvious: any where you wish
to convey a reprintable copy of how something originally printed onto 
paper.  As an on-line document-viewing format, it sucks rocks.

Which part of that did you fail to understand the first few times?
