Yet, you /still/ didn't restore the missing group. Your excuse this time would be that it was too early?

Well, it is, and that's the way it'll be. I'll be the one to choose what, when, and where I post. I snipped what was irrelevant to my reply, and my reply was more relevant to a.h.l.g., so that's where the flup went.

Again, I'll post as I see fit, in accordance with subject matter to which I'm replying.

And, my post went to all of the groups, but the flup was set to the group that was most relevant. If they choose to reply to the sub-thread, they can do so, or not. The name of the group is *not* rec.lawn.garden. The sub-thread had *nothing* to do with gardens. My flup went where it should.

That's *you*, not me. I choose to post to the more appropriate group.

Do what you want. I'm not the only one who restored the followups you set. I'll just do as I please from now on, also.

Sure you are. Only four people have replied to this sub-thread: You, BR, Steveo, and myself. BR and Steveo both left the flup as I set it. I have no hard-kills set for this group. Who else does do you see that restored the groups? Noone. So, it seems that only *you* have a problem with it.

That's as it should be. =)

Did you even read the paragraph, that you quoted, below? Pay particular attention to the sentence, "I have no hard-kills set for this group.". Any downscored posters are only marked as read. Simply viewing "All Posts" reveals everyone that posted to the thread.

I've noticed that you re-added misc.rural, Jim. I'm guessing you did it to try and bother me, somehow. You failed, miserably. All that you've proved is that you failed to read (comprehend?) the post to which you replied. ;)

yep.
noting your additional explanation contained here.

so what happened right here? btw - I was being tolerant. now I'm asking.

that was rather observant of you. can you tell me who originally cross posted this thread across the 3 groups?

why would I want to bother you Eggs?

I read it. the proper an accepted term is and always has been 'killfile' and would have by itself made unnecessary the additional explanation you included in 'this' reply of yours..
Eggs, you know how top posting sort of bothers you enough to the point of where you'll actually in your reply state "[top-posting fixed]" at the beginning of your replies to a top poster? doing that habitually as you do projects an image of you as being one who attempts to impose their will upon others. is it your will or is it what's been established as usenet acceptable you desire to have others conform to?

had a marvelous day, thank you.
rate the relevance of this conversational exchange for subject topic matter pertinency towards anyone of the news groups it has been posted in.

I'm not sure I understand your question, sorry. Ann stated that she wasn't the only one that had restored the crossposted groups, when clearly she was.

Thanks. Once in a great while, I have my moments. =)

That would be you. =)

That's one thing that I couldn't figure out.

It's been the accepted practice since the inception of The USENET (and before, actually). It has nothing at all to do with 'imposing my will upon others'. There are crap newsreaders out there [1], that place the cursor at the first line of the reply, before the attribution line, which forces the user to top post (which, they wrongly do, until it is pointed out to them that /very/ few groups accept top-posting as their preferred method of replying), or manually place their reply inline (proper), or at the end of the quoted material (just as bad as top-posting), or they completely bork quotes, line length, etc.
Then there's G2, which is desperately trying to convince it's users that Google Groups is somehow, something that Google came up with. It's simply an interface to The USENET, an archive, and nothing more. It also borks quotes something awful, and it's getting worse with each release. It was good that Google took over the DejaNews archive, but even the archive is borked now. =(

Great to hear it. Hope the weather in your area has turned for the better. It sure has here. Had to get the Carharts out this morning, HEH. =D

I'll leave the groups, and not set a flup. Perhaps a user or two will pickup on proper posting habits. A simple search on GNKSA and/or netiquette would do those that don't understand, a world of good. =)
[1] Such as Forte Agent (and Free Agent), OE, AOL, Opera, XanaNews, G2, etc, none of which has past the GNKSA, and likely never will.

No, actually, I was mistaken, it wasn't in this thread that someone restored the crossposts you snipped, it was another. Doesn't matter. You want to be in charge, but so do others. Time to get over it.....

OK, so maybe it is just a patch of three inch high weeds, but it looks OK to me and it is a lot less work than trying to maintain a stereotypical suburban lawn.

woman asked for advice. Her hubby wants a golf course look & feel to their lawn. Earlier in the summer he got a restricted use pesticide license just to buy insecticide to kill all the earthworms in the yard because he could feel the little mounds when he walked on the grass. Evidently used it all on one application. She was there to get off the shelf pesticide to kill the "army worms" in the lawn. When asked to describe the army worms, her description wasn't even close. After a long discussion about the improbable perfect lawn, and seeing what their goal was, I finally gave up.

Wife didn't say which one. I don't think you can buy DDT in the US can you? Don't see it on the restricted list.

It was a tongue in cheek question, never mind. I try to avoid most of the bizarre inquiries in here as much as I can. Less flames.

several of the erosion control meadow strips on the Farm have evolved over the years into rather nice areas of tall fescue by only mowing them with a gyro [bushhog] mower set to about 6 or 8 inches cutting height. they get mowed 6 or 8 times a year. the fescue is allowed each year to grow tall and produce it's own seed for over or reseeding. the soybean fields contained within the erosion control meadow strips produce large amounts of organic nitrogen which finds it's way into the grass and the annual lime applications of the bean land bleeds over onto these fescue strips. people have seen these and remarked how they wish their lawn looked that good. most lawns in suburbanite land are diminished by the over application of cheap chemical fertilizers. the people who have figured out composting are way ahead in the sporting event known as gardening and their carry over knowledge resulting from their understanding of how there is life in that compost pile enables them to have the better healthier lawns through allowing all living things to work in harmony with one another.

Not a serious suggestion at all: Grind to aspirin-size bits in your food processor. A year later, when that's done, spread it on the lawn.
