    You probably are already aware that usenet attracts all sorts of
    numpties, nutters and malignant entities. This news group is no
    exception. Indeed it may well have more than its fair share.
    It seems to me to be infested with brainless trolls who exhibit a
    nasty malign tendency to dish out aggravation under the
    guise of "help".

    My advice would be for you to post your queries to other news
    groups and consider the replies sent to this one with extreme
    caution. There are of course genuine people frequenting this
    news group who will only give good advice but they are in the
    minority, in my honest opinion that is.

    I hope this advice helps in your dealings with this news group.

    The easiest way to spot the corporate DSLR shills is how defensive they get.
    They'll stop at nothing to dissuade others from their own misleading and
    deceptively biased opinions.

    Malignant? As in causing brain cancer?

    Your command of the language is unique, you nutter!

    As long as they are only fools we will succeed. It's the malevolent nutters and
    trolls you have to be firm with. Fools you can play with! But to be on the safe
    side DO look back but only occasionally.

    Thank you once again for your contributions wild tho some have been.

    Take care and keep the faith.

    Your good buddy, Frankie.
