Better Idea...Lets get the 'SCAMMERS' plugs pulled by their ISP's.

I rarely respond to these types of postings, but Let us look at the facts ....er...look@ facts, whatever...

Do you know what spamming is? Spamming is running one message over and over, covering and filling the entire board. Nobody else can post or read anything. This is unacceptable behavior on ANY forum on the internet. Surely you must realize this.

If you feel that this is not the right location for you, you are free to leave, free to discuss and discourse, free to speak here. You are NOT however free to spam here. If you have something to say, then speak up. You should be agreeing with the writer of this thread. Since you are not, I am left to wonder if you are one of the perpetrators or totally unaware of internet ettiquette.

Hey Ynott, I don't need a brain-dead moron like you telling me what I should or should not agree on. Work on your own pathetic life, that will keep you busy.

Thanks for posting this Ron. If I read "America's buisiness day opens with NO troubles" or "Hey Heller: the fat lady is standing in front of the microphone..." one more time, I think I would of just logged off for a few hours. I also am wondering if these two posters are having unexplained computer glitches (no- I'm sure it must be error humans,er,human errors) that are causing the same,boring, multiple posts.Thanks for addressing it first.

My Goodness! You seem to have a lot of pent up anger and frustration. Have you considered professional counseling? Are you aware that we now have medications that can help?

-- Ynott (Ynott@incorruptible.com), January 04, 2000.

I don't think there were any real Y2K scammers, and I'm a guy who spent maybe $5000 on preparations that now appear to be unneeded. I think Gary North and Mike Hyatt and all the rest firmly believed in what they were saying; I think they were sincere but they simply overestimated the scope of the problem.

These vindictive, angry, vitriolic pollys are a bunch of sickos.

Yep, I looked at the facts. What I saw was that a person was reminded of common courtesy and responded with uncivil behavior. Must not have kindegarten today

-- (4@5.6), January 04, 2000.

Look @ the facts...really intelligent response. I'm impressed.

-- TM (mercier7@pdnt.com), January 04, 2000.

I say lets lets get the vendors plugs pulled...starting with Ron.

-- anti-scamm (scammers@nd.spammers), January 04, 2000.

You've got one problem, toots.

I'm not a vendor!

Did I find, and sell a few grain mills over the past few months? Yup. Now meditate on the meaning of the words "past tense".

As to the spammers, they can embrace that which spammers traditionally discover sooner or later: and Internet-free existence.
