Hey Gizmo,

I know you feel the need to post on every little message that doesn't
concern you, but please refrain from making up soap opera drama tales
about how I had to create another account to badmouth you. You
obviously need to take a break - 5000 posts in 125 groups? How do you
have time for your job and wife, or are you in your parents' basement
jerking off to all the "burns" and "zings" you've been handing out on
usenet.

In all honesty, if I have no interest in a post, I ignore it. You don't
want the lens? Fine. You think I'm an idiot for posting it here? Fine.
Threatening to commit fraud because you are a sociopath that feeds off
of insulting people on usenet? Get some help.

PS - why the hell are you on a calgary forsale group if you are in the
UK

You need to learn how to search and cross reference ;o)
Don't bother searching by ID or email address on google

You posted to rec.photo.digital
Maybe you need to go read the group charter ?

As did you. Please trim out the extraneous groups when the discussion is
within the confines of this group.

Ah, John...
Which group?
As you can see, it's posted to several.
And this is one of the problems that some never consider; just because
you only use one group, it's seen as "this" group, or "my" group, but
it's never given which group that actually is.
Provincialism at its best.

Again, where's "here"?
For you to say so-and-so is only here, that doesn't say much, unless
you can demonstrate you've searched all the other pertinent groups.
Have you?
Again, it would help tremendously to say where "here" is.
It really isn't hard to do.

For me, "here", at this moment, is a state of mind where I am clearing
my emotional palette of any baggage (usenet is a good release in that
regard...heh) before immersing myself into the real world of an
international marathon for several days.

Bill, what is it with lonely control freaks that insist on cluttering
the world of free speech with elitist rules and bs? It seems to me
they need less discussion and more immulsion.
