I have absolutely no problem with him. Maybe we just haven't clashed
yet, but when I do interact with him, we have had no problems thus far.

An opinion unworthy. Yes, my own cheap shot for the day.

At least that's what he'd have said if he'd been honest.

Thank you Dave. I don't clash with those of differing opinion, I clash
with those who are rude to me and to others. As you are demonstrably, a
gentleman, I would be quite surprised that we'd ever 'clash'.

Cheers,
Alan

Alan's not too bad, actually.
The op's question should have been concerning Pizza-Face. Now THAT'S the
REAL question

For the avoidance of all possible doubt I do not wish to be associated
with the sentiments of the statement above.

Alan.

Personally I have no idea who he is, I rarely post to this group as the
volume of trash is quite bewildering. Notwithstanding the genuine and
helpful members.

However, I have one thing I hate as much as trolls and spam, and that is
publicly having a stab at someone. If that person is a knob, then
everybody will know so. If he's just upset you, then sort it out
yourself in private.

Indeed, the fact that you cross posted and then posted it twice under
different headers makes you no better.

Alan may not be perfect, may not always be on topic and I may not agree
with everything he posts, but I have never seen him start a malicious
argument on this newsgroup, such as what you are doing.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to e-mail most of the members of this group,
"in private". Very few of them post with valid e-mail addresses, that will
accept off group posts, so if you wish to argue an off-topic subject with
them, you have no choice but to involve everyone else in the group.
Occasionally, some member of the group takes some objection to something I
say, and e-mails me privately with their response, and I can carry the
argument on without involving the group, but this is rare. Usually I either
have to involve the group, or, (which is much more common) I just swallow my
desire to object to some stupidity, and say nothing because it's off
topic.......

False on two counts.

1) I may be perfect. Still tbd.

2) I *have* tried to start arguments on this group about TP's obnoxious
behaviour. Well, not arguments really, for anyone who would argue that
his behaviour is not obnoxious really doesn't know the meaning of the word.



Cheers,
(And thanks)
Alan.
