So what's the deal with this Hermine Stover?
Is she a reputable grower of bamboo and an expert on the plants or just some
tattooed shaved headed freak that likes to troll newsgroups and scare little
childred with her pit bulls?
Some say that the woman does the bizarre things she does because she is
bipolar, what is your take on the subject?
Is this woman for real or what?
Enquiring minds want to know!!!!
Hermine is not the real expert, although she originally grew bamboo
long before I did. I am her husband, Roger. Hermine knows a great deal
about many kinds of plants which are virtually unknown to me, but I
have specialized in BAMBOO. I am using Hermine's computer today.
Hermine wonders why her tattoos or general sense of fashion would even
figure into a newsgroup about Bamboo. Hermine has been breeding and
training and showing dogs all her life; some of her dogs are therapy
dogs who visit shut-ins in hospitals and the like; this includes
I have put two obedience degrees on our dogs myself.
"Freak" is an out-of-date term; however, Hermine, for example, is a
tiny, trim person, she looks like a dancer, really and, unlike
yourself, she does not weigh as much as the average family
refrigerator. Some would say massive obesity is a form of
freakishness. Steve, I look forward to meeting you someday at a
convention of plant people. I feel a face to face meeting might
clarify some of the misconceptions you have about my wife, with whom
you seem obsessed. I am sure we can straighten this out, man to man.
You've aleady had several opportunities in the past to meet me in person,
"Roger Dodger using Hermine's computer today", and since that never
happened, it is unlikely that it will happen in the future.
A man to man meeting would be most interesting. Who are you going to bring
that is a man to represent you?
Since you have never met me nor know anything about me, your uninformed
assumptions about me are quite humorous, "Roger Dodger using Hermine's
Freak is an out-of-date term? If so, you must be an anachronism stuck in the
I am looking forward to hearing more about Hermine from somebody else that
has dealt with her other than "Roger Dodger using Hermine's computer today"
or any of her other personalities!!!
Should we expect to hear from Hermine using Roger's computer tomorrow?
I am new to the gardening newsgroups, but not new to newsgroups per
se. One thing that I have found, in every set of groups with a similar
focus, in this case gardening and botany, there are always one or two
assholes. I think that I have just identified one of them, after
reading this response and Googling back on Ceroid's posting history
pretty well confirmed it.
Ceroid, or perhaps Hemorrhoid would be more apt, you are an idiot who
jumps to conclusions with very little forethought. If Roger was indeed
Hermine as you not very subtly imply, and as Hermine's using Forte
Agent, it would have been a moment's work to change the sender and
newsreader details, or to really obfuscate matters, post through
Having seen how little thought you apply to things around you, I would
be very wary of accepting anything you had to say as valid.
To others on these groups, Hi, my name's David May, I have just
purchased my first property and am developing a strong interest in
gardening, horticulture and permaculture. I discovered the 'roid's
offensive post about Hermine whilst looking for information on bamboo,
I am considering it for a privacy screen on a half-acre, lakeside
property. I am worried about its propensity to get out of hand, and
although quite prepared to mow new shoots etc., really don't want
taking care of bamboo to occupy a large amount of my time in the
To the, 'roid, the offensive little pissant, drop off!
It is spelled SQUALOR.
Nu, So live in the middle of an active landscape nursery. My husband
and I have thus far purchased 5 fixer-uppers and renovated them. (it
is an ongoing architect's hobby).
A nutless bag can be a sad thing in a man, but it is a problem with
which I shall not have to deal.
At least I do not have to be driven naked on a flatbed truck through a
car wash in order to take a bath! I actually fit into a normal tub
with room for my husband.
I would LOVE to stay and chat about this, but I would really much
rather talk about bamboo. I have a list for that purpose, and if you
send me a blank post at email@example.com and follow
that up with a brief introduction, you can access the thinking of lots
of skilled bamboo fanciers.
Join a group therapy session and learn to live like human beings..then grow
bamboo...if that's what you call that ratty mess...
You called me today and yes I bought from you and was in you "fixer-uppers"
better described as fetid trailers. Now go bathe...
I have no idea why you would cobble together such a fantasy....so MANY
falsehoods. HOWEVER, I know you were never here. Perhaps this is some
professional jealousy chaneled by a friend? I am no expert on mental
pathology, but I surely know it when I see it; My guess is that you
have been composting too long, and it has invaded your reality. I do
not know as there is a therapy group for this.
ALSO...and this is just a matter of writing style-----I would invest
in a thesaurus. you used the word "rotting" three times, "filth"
twice...this is a paucity of vocabulary.
You are so obsessed with dirt on the outside. Best to pay some
attention to the inner garbage, mate.
Certainly, a thesaurus, that's a true failure compared to living in a human
and animal fecal material. I told Juan and Dave I'd hush up, until you
started spouting like world class experts growing from a shit hole. Would
you like me to describe the VOW bus models and their condition. Or I could
draw a rough map of the layout, you filthy frauds!
Denial is a ricer in Egypt....your getting more and more like Steve with
every post. Lie rather than get well!
Wow, a spelling correction for an abusive article/thread posted in 2003!
which fives some pointers about posting to the Usenet and why the home
owners hub web site may not be the best way
