Potential Client: "Hello, I am told you build websites. I need a website that is like YouTube but without the videos."
Me: "So, if there isn't any video, what sort of media will your users be uploading and sharing?"
Potential Client: "No they will just comment"
Me: "I am sorry, I don't understand. What will the users comment on? Commenting implies that there is some content already on the page. Do you maybe want to build a forum or message board that allows your users to have online discussions?"
Potential Client: "Okay we can add comments in later just don't bother with that part for now. What can you do for me?"
Me: "I am really confused. No videos, no comments....what else is left on YouTube to replicate? You'd just have a blank white page."
Potential Client: "You're the fourth person who can't see my vision. Don't worry about it, I'll find someone else."

I won't worry. I was looking forward to giving him a blank white page though.
