I've got too much time on my hands :-).
I just did a Google search on postings to this group by Tim in the last 12 months. There were 116. 5 or 6 were on woodworking topics based on the subject line.
Just to be fair, since I've been known to get drawn into these off topic discussions, I checked my own history. At least the first 128 Google showed me (it omitted 202 "similar" postings). Of the 128, better than 60 were on woodworking or responding to things like Toms stories, beer jokes, computer questions, etc..
So I'm on topic about 50% of the time. Tim's on topic about 5% of the time.
I wanted to make sure I wasn't being unfair in adding him to my killfile :-).

If Tim's posts make you uncomfortable, there's no need to come up with a public justification. Just killfile him and move on. Why the need to call attention to yourself?

There is an old adage "Silence implies consent". That I daresay, is why Mr Blanchard and I contribute to off-topic threads, to prove that we do not consent to whatever it is that Pat Robertson has told them to post about this week.
Posting a 'plonk' announcement creates a UseNet record that the author's silence, in the future should not be considered indicative of consent.

Is that the current put-down that Mr Soros is telling you to use this month for any comments that don't fit into his worldview?

I don't recall any correspondence from any Mr Soros.
My guess is you mean George Soros:

My apologies, I didn't realize that George Soros was on a first-name basis with his sheeple. I'll keep that in mind in the future.

No problem, I just wanted to be sure we were talking about the same person. I had thought it was James Carville who was responsible for much of the Democratic Party Platform in the recent past and Howard Dean today.
On the surface it looks like George Soros provides more funding than policy--quite a contrast with Pat Robertson who dictates much of the Republican policy. However maybe Mr Soros is just more subtle.
Of course, "Silence implies consent." is not a put-down.

Do you actually know who Pat Robertson is? Or did you just hear his name on Air America (assuming it hasn't gone off the air in your area)? I wouldn't necessarily put Pat in the neighborhood of kook fringe, but he certainly doesn't dictate policy for the Republican party.

I've watched Pat Robertson on the 700 Club, in interveiws, and on his cooking show. I've seen him do the Faith-healing fraud to raise money.
If you do not realize he is a cult leader then, as they say, you must have drunk the kool-aid.
What is Air-America? Sounds like it is worth checking out.

And that makes you think he's part of the Republican party inner circle how?

Air America is a radio network that was set up for the purposes of stealing money from the Boy Scouts and draining George Soros of cash.

Guilt by association. Robertson was once a slighly provocative ultra-conservative with a religious fan base. He has aged into becoming a loon. No serious political platform is built around his personal insanity and suggesting so is just flatly wrong. Certainly the Republican party has to pay some homage' to the Religious Right - they are a considerable constituency - but that hardly makes him a principal in Republican policy setting.
Personally, I find Robertson's lunacy far more entertaining than, say, Kennedy's (who is just another tired old drunk)...

If Pat Robertson comes out against a Republican candidate, that candiddate loses.

OTOH, he is reason why GWB got the Republican nomination in 2000, instead of John McCain.

You have to realize that in Fredfighter's world, the act of accusing those espousing ideas not in line with the congressional left or the NYT editorial page of being mindless robots directed by Rush Limbaugh no longer gets the desired reaction. Thus, he has had to cast about for someone at the fringes in order to attempt to denigrate those with whom he disagrees.

I'm a reasonbly conservative-type, and AFAIC, Pat Robertson is a slightly wacky TV preacher who has a tendency to say inappropriate things. IMHO, he's the fringe of the Republican party, but I wouldn't go quite as far to say kook fringe. He certainly doesn't "dictate Republican policy" as he does in Fredfighter's imaginary world.

I'll also add that from his bio it looks like George Soros made his money honestly.

Splorf!
It looks like you never heard Pat Robertson speak.
How many people are in his 'Christian Coalition'? How many watch _The 700 Club_?

Well, I suppose if you consider bankrupting third world nations by speculating on their currency and endangering the currencies of first tier nations like Britain via the same approach to be making money "honestly", then I suppose you can say that George Soros came by his money honestly.

I doubt it's very applicable to a USENET newsgroup, where dozens of topics are being discussed at a any particular time. Does this mean that I can go back in the rec.ww archives and if I find a thread you have not posted in I can assume you consent to the content?

I have no problem with people posting to off-topic threads. What I do have a problem with is hyprocrites. Here's another old adage: "And why do you look at the splinter in your brother's eye, and not notice the beam which is in your own eye?"

Riiiight. Good thing everyone keeps track of who has plonked whom, just so we can keep the score up to date. No one cares that someone has been plonked.
