Comments from a more-or-less innocent bystander: not everyone is
serially-attached to Usenet (i.e. they can follow more than one thread at a
time), and the general assumption is that the only people who don't follow
basic netiquette are either newbies or trolls.

Attribution is considered basic netiquette (although y' don't tend to see as
many flame-wars on the subject as you used to..)

No judgement implied or intended.

Thread or no thread, every so often that question arises by the same people
who don't know what they are doing. Nemo is telling it like it is. It's as
simple as that.

Well, I'm sorry you read what I wrote and reached that conclusion.
Sigh. I'll not try to explain further . . .

Funny thing is I agree 100%. Perhaps you'll think that because I agree
with these last two paragraphs _*and*_ have used monitoring software
that I am slightly schitso. But in my mind, software is of limited
usefulness, but some, and potentially dangerous, but not so dangerous as
to be worthy of some of the rants supplied by nemo. Complicated? Well,
