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
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.
-A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
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.
[irrelevant groups snipped]
[flup set to a.h.l.g.]
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. ;)
The only 15 letter word that can be spelled without repeating a letter is
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
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
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
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 , 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. =)
 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.....
Ann, gardening in Zone 6a
South of Boston, Massachusetts
I was in Lowes yesterday passing through the lawn & garden dept when a
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.
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.
