BTW - The final stage of an organized troll attack is for the trolls to disguise themselves as regular members of the NG.
Under this cloak they seek to foment internecine strife amongst the populace.
But, we've seen this kinda shit before.

I do have to admit, Dave, I do enjoy Tom's offbeat humor. It lightens the mood sometimes, in his odd sort of way....... Mark L.

In small doses, and on some occasions I've gotten a kick from his posts, but more often than not they are always based on kicking someone when they are down. He likes to jump in after everyone else has done their share of sniping.

Hey you;
I am a grown man and I don't need you to protect me from anything. I don't want you or anyone else to tell me what morals I should adhere to.
Peddle your censurship some where else.

Dan, I think his post was MAJOR "tongue-in-cheek". It's ALMOST comforting to know I'm not the only one around here who is sometimes misunderstood. Most of the time I get my point (acerbic though it may be) across as intended, but once in a while a post will go over many heads (makes sense though, when you consider where SOME of those heads are located [present company excepted]). I certainly don't encourage the protracted assault on Charlie's poor choice of words, but there is a BIT of wry humor in the troll's words. and besides, he has GOT to be a regular anyway. Either that or he is a Constant Reader (read S. King?).
If I'm not already on your plonkee list, I guess I am now for daring to speak out. oh well.

And yet, somehow, after all that has gone on, some folks still don't know enough to ignore this shit. At this rate, it will be here for as long as the newsgroup is here.

I am not so sure; although the temptation to always drag that board over to the powah jointer is strong, it is not always the best choice. Sometimes it is more effective to just use a handtool. Do you have any hand planes? A jointer (#7 or #8) can straighten the edge of a board remarkably quickly. Even a jack plane can do a very good job and they are cheap'n'easy to come by. You might wanna try it out.
If you have any more questions, just ask.

I did call him and we talked. He's never heard of the usenet, and is now upset and worried, I afraid. When he sees the google that comes up under his company anme he's likely to be even more upset. Someone is trolling in his name as suspected. Now that probably IS actionable. I guess we need to stop thinking about Mr Baird and play whack-a-troll.
