There is also the pot-kettle-black nature of someone who himself participates in off-topic threads posting a list of off-topic posters with the recommendation they be kill-filed. Or is there an Irony Contest going I hadn't heard about?

If you had any sort of reading comprehension, you would know someone else suggested filtering out off topic posters. I simply provided a short list of those recently participating in off topic posts.
If you didn't have your head so far up your ass, you would have noted there was no "pot-kettle-black nature" to the post, and about the only irony would be you crying I "missed one" and then posting a bunch of gobbledygook with my name on it, when the FIRST name on my list was my own...

Yeah, seems its your contest, and you won!

Well sonofabitch, so it is. Heh, mea culpa, I actually looked for "Jack Stein" and "JBStein" didn't click.
BTW, the "gobbledygook" was the headers from your post.

No argument with that, other than "many of their constituents recognize as rampaging socialism." "Rampaging socialism" is easy to recognize, no need to convince anyone with half a brain... it is what it is...

THIS is why I keep coming back for more. The purest of hilarities. You are funny, Jack. WAY funnier than you know. And not very bright.

Only problem is that most everybody gets drawn into some completely off topic political or gun or medical or other non woodworking topic. Yet, it only seems to be you with your extremely limited intelligence that suggests filtering everybody. I wonder why that is?

I never suggested any such thing. I merely provided a short list of folks that post off topic when someone else suggested filtering names rather than subjects. I may have correctly noted that filtering names would be much easier than filtering subjects.

Then your list may need some tuning. I have NEVER started an off-topic conversation (except maybe a humorous one or two and so labeled). On the other hand, I don't let some things go unchallenged either.

My list of names had nothing to do with people that START off topic conversation. The list was of people that PARTICIPATE in off topic conversation, and you are definitely on the list.
Filtering only the person that started an off topic thread would get him nowhere.

A good start would be to filter everyone who posts in alt.home.repair.

I read an article recently on some of the folks funding opposition to health care reform and was absolutely gobsmacked to discover how many of them are owners or CEOs etc. of health care companies making nice fat profits with things just as they are. No, really, guys getting multi-million-dollar bonus checks at insurance companies and so on are opposed to the system being changed--who knew?

What cracks me up is folks upset at the notion of some govt. bureaucrat telling them which sort of health care they'll be allowed to have as if the same damn thing doesn't happen today with insurance company bureaucrats. I had an MRI awhile back and the hospital wouldn't give me an appointment until they'd heard from the insurance company. Ditto with appointments with specialists and so on, it all requires approval from some guy in a cubicle a thousand miles away. I've also had a medication a doctor wanted to prescribe for me disallowed by the insurance company in favor of a less expensive generic--so I didn't get what the doctor thinks is the best drug, but the one the insurance company is willing to pay for. And that's nothing compared to what some folks have to go through, like having an insurance company cancel coverage in the middle of chemo-therapy for breast cancer on the flimsy excuse that the woman under-reported her weight on her original application with the insurance company. For a start that sort of crap should be flat-out illegal.

A friend of mine has health insurance provided by the employer as part of the compensation package.
Absolutely every doctor's appointment, lab test, etc, must have prior approval from the insurance company before it can even be scheduled.
This almost always costs several days/weeks delay before service is received.
Such is NOT the case with those on Medicare.
Sounds like maybe the government getting involved in a major issue like health care might just be a good thing.

Here's the difference: If you don't like the way your insurance company treats you - and your observation tends to imply that direction - you're free to change insurance companies!
What do you do if you don't like the way the GOVERNMENT health-care system treats you?
I guess you could move to Canada...

I dunno - I never tried it. But thousands of hippies managed it back during the Vietnam war and I just figured if a flea-bitten hippie could find north, most anybody else could too.
I could be wrong. We never really heard about the hippies that wandered off in another direction. I guess they were hit by cars or fell into the ocean or died of the munchies.
Like I say, I don't know.
