Perhaps so, but so what? As you point out, some posters consider much of what
is said idiotic. It does no need to cry about it, and those who do any way are
well on the road to becoming anal retentive.
Usenet is a forum for people to speak out. If they are speaking out on an
off-topic subject and you want to stay on-topic, just mark the whole thread as

NO, NO, NO. I killfile the idiots first. Most never have anything to say
about the group they are responding to anyway. When I killfile some of
these people, my list of posts sometimes lessen by 20%. They must need to
get a life to get on with.
When you skip an OT thread, you've saved yourself from having to see it. When
you killfile a poster, though, you not only eliminate the OT stuff, you also
prevent yourself from seeing any good on-topic stuff from his as well. As long
as you are OK with that, by all means killfile away.

Odd..Ive 60 some firearms..and only a few have taken a life. And those
being surplus military arms of other countries.
Least..that I care to discuss here.
I keep waiting and hoping they will ban idiots and cowards. That
should reduce the world's population by at least 90%. Of course, they
would have to figure out what to do with all the crap left behind. :(

While at Tech, doing my apprenticeship we where warned never to wear
jewellery, including rings in the work shop. (Although some of the
instructors wore ties).
To drive home the message several large posters of photographs were
One that I've never forgotten was of a finger with a wedding ring and a
long piece of string like stuff protruding from where it had been torn
from a hand.
This was a tendon that had stayed attached and pulled out from the
shoulder. No use or very little left in the blokes arm.
My wedding ring was worn on my wedding day and has stayed in a box at
home ever since.
