    After noticing an up-surge of Aussies in nz.comp I thought that I'd take a
    look at the Auzzie version... they are actually remarkably polite compared
    to us...

    My question is, Is this what we look like to the rest of the world?
    and if so,
    How long before they(the rest of the world) stop coming here?

    Good to have you aboard, King Reject

  5. So why didn't you join them?

    Oh ... because you are a reject. Sorry, I should have known.

    He's less annoying than Roger, albeit less entertaining.

  8. Explains why you are here then.

    Why don't you just leave us rejects alone.

    That post bought to you by an immigrant who won't leave. In other
    words a reject, definitely not a "Good People"

    Makes me laugh at your introspective presumption that because someone posts
    using an Aussie address, - they must be an Aussie.
    If they come over, it won't be for the "broadband".

    nah, I checked the headers, the posts are coming from IP's belonging to
    Aussie ISPs'
    heh, yeah I know.

    I'll rephrase that: "Make's me laugh at your introspective presumption that
    because someone posts using an Aussie address/ISP OR even if the headers
    tell you that it's coming from Australia, - they must be an Aussie".

    Why it's almost as laughable as using Outlook Express as a news client
    without running "OE Quotefix" first [hint, hint].

    No worries, it improves on a sorrowful outcome, 10 fold.

    I use it because it's there...
    and why use quote fix when I have no problem with it?

    :) I like the pretty colours. Seriously, have you tried it? It makes
    reading long, un-snipped threads a lot easier (for me anyway). I think it's
    a damn good add-on, and a small download to boot.

    Yeah I have tried it, ages ago, but it seemed to have a small delay when
    opening messages(this was ages ago).

    I read the groups often enough that I know the way most threads are going
    before they get there... pretty much all end up being a "Roger is a
    dickhead" thread, or a "Linux is god/Windows is insecure" thread... we seems
    to be fairly excitable in here.

    Pity you didn't keep it up [or use another client]. You mightn't think
    *you* have problems with OE but I can tell you, your posts *look* crap. The
    longer you stay in a thread the more broken up and shitty they look. But
    you're right it's not *your* problem.
    Ummm nooo... Linus is God - Linux is an OS ;)
