Stating the obvious

Some people must be really stupid to prompt the number of detailed explanations of what would appear to be the bleeding obvious.

Take this explanation on the Qtix website for online ticket sales at some Queensland events.

"When selecting tickets the system says 'sold out', what does this mean?"

What do people think this message means? Is there any ambiguity about the meaning of 'sold out'?

Well just to clear up any possible confusion, the website goes on to explain:

At this time there are no tickets available for this particular part of the venue.

Read on down the website though and there are some far less obvious questions to be answered, including this classic:

"I have received my tickets but they have turned black, what has happened?"

Now that's a question!
