It's a far cry from


to what you just described.

The original poster wanted an object that could not be moved by anyone else
than the person who owned it.  One reply answered this request, but the
code given
left a loophole that would allow someone other than the object's owner to
move the
object.  So, I offered a more robust solution.  Brack also added thoughts
on how
to handle a situation where the object in question is a player.  

And you treat the whole exchange like we're all idiots.
