    No worries. It just proves that you can't fix stupid. :)

    True but annoying.

    There was a song that came to mind as I typed .. Little Children ...
    Wayne Fontana and the Mind Benders? that describes these fools.

    They're just trolls. Nothing to get excited about.
    This site should explain everything you need to know about them:


    If posters just shun them, they leave. They're driven to go - without attention,
    they're nothing. Of course they're nothing anyway, but attention keeps them
    going for awhile, until they need their next fix.

    Thanks for that Mara. I appreciate and try to avoid opening
    opportunities. It's just I recall that you were hounded quite
    frequently of recent and it looks like you could again. K'file is
    wonderful but it still is annoying to those who are being afflicted, the
    subject I mean by that.

  7. Blinky the Shark gibbered in 24hoursupport.helpdesk:
    No, you got one of the triplets. There's Larry, Marty, and Marty.

    Most people believe if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Microsoft believes that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features.

    I'll let you suss that out. They both applied for work with me but
    regulations require me not to let you know that they are twins.

    If they were hounding me, I didn't see it. But it wouldn't surprise me.

    Think about it. They can't sustain relationships, they can't hold jobs, they
    can't do any of the things normal people do, so what else is there for them?

    When you've been on usenet as long as I have, you tend to collect these sorts of
    mental midgets. A "Fanboi Club," if you will. It's actually a compliment to me;
    I am what they are not, and can never be. :)

    "Bullies project their inadequacies, shortcomings, behaviors etc on to other
    people to avoid facing up to their inadequacy and doing something about it
    (learning about oneself can be painful), and to distract and divert attention
    away from themselves and their inadequacies. Projection is achieved through
    blame, criticism and allegation; once you realise this, every criticism,
    allegation etc that the bully makes about their target is actually an admission
    or revelation about themselves. This knowledge can be used to perceive the
    bully's own misdemeanors; for instance, when the allegations are of financial or
    sexual impropriety, it is likely that the bully has committed these acts; when
    the bully makes an allegation of abuse (such allegations tend to be vague and
    non-specific), it is likely to be the bully who has committed the abuse. When
    the bully makes allegations of, say, "cowardice" or "negative attitude" it is
    the bully who is a coward or has a negative attitude."

  10. :) I'd already posted my list of first names when I read Old's similar
    post and saw he'd listed a Marty, too. :)

  11. I'd've hired Bill first; he came to me before he went to Tim. But he
    wanted six bucks an hour. With that resume? Fat chance!

    Serves you right. When he minced across the room and lisped "Eat me -
    big boy", that wasn't what he meant.

    The two Marty(ies) looked so alike on the photos that accompanied their
    cvs that I could not contemplate interviewing them!

    Mark, however, was interesting in his Cv

    Quite, but he comes from somewhere south of San Diego and I assured him
    his secret is safe with me.

  15. Damnear choked on that stethoscope. If I'd died, my family would've gone
    after him for mal...uh...nutrition.

  16. If I got Larry, I sure got a poor speller. Always signs his time cards
    "Marty". Musta got Marty.

    B*gg*r; I thought they'd got you on that one. What do we have to do to
    dispose of these threats to humans.
