Sysop, You're right about the "may" be deleted...the post right below was left although the person in question is "named" here. My post however was deleted - fine, I tried to make a thoughtful post to bring this nonsense to an end, but you are of course free to pursue your usual reactive "delete" modus operandi....

Sysops-sorry about the carpel tunnel. We appreciate the cleaned up boards. I went into and, which were listed by a sysops below. I just get a main page full of typical aol stuff and I can't figure out where you are supposed to go to complain about spam. Got a better URL? Somewhere it said aol wasn't going to do anything. Is that definitely true...a final decision? Hope the volcano is quieted down for a while after all that venting. Thanks for the hard work.

Look aaa@, use your real email and we can talk about it. I'm always open to meeting to discuss things as well. Comprende?

What a moral coward.

Sysops: Extremely sorry if my post looked like bait. I will try to be more careful in the future.

-- JCC (, February 20, 2000.

oh darn .. i'll try to curb the bait also.

Spam on our boards? Nah!

-- Mara (, February 20, 2000.

Quiet please...

FactFinder: your post was addressed directly to Laura/Ladylogic. She couldn't answer because--as you know--she is a Delete on Sight troll so your post constitutes troll/spam bait, merely serving to inflame the individual. Further, LL is not going to listen to Dr. Joyce Brothers, let alone you, as you should know from her rantings on Debunker, BFI and this board as well. I deleted around six other "bait" posts at the same time as yours. Other sysops deleted more. It wasn't personal.

Everyone else--many thank yous for being understanding and amenable.

PS - We waste enough time deleting new threads started by LL; we don't need to waste even more time by deleting answers to troll bait.
