I would suggest that you take a course in *comprehension* of the English
language. You are either deliberately side-stepping what I wrote or have
not grasped the ability to read and comprehend what you have read.

Nope, that is not the "crime". You know it. You also have not read what I
wrote. I will once again suggest that you *read* what is written. Put your
agenda aside for 10 seconds and just *read* what is written regarding the
recent behavior on the ng from you and your cohorts. The level of
immaturity that you have demonstrated does absolutely nothing to forward
your "cause". But you are a troll. Trolls do not do postings to actually
*prove* anything other then how many responses that they can get from a
post of theirs.

"like a" ... not name calling. The analogy was for illustrative purposes
only. You really need to take a bit of time and read what is posted. But
you are a troll and you are only posting to bait.

Not an ad hominem. Your examples of posting behavior appear to suggest that
you don't have a life...or a conscious. If so, you would have demonstrated
either by backing off and going someplace else, demonstrating *responsible*
behavior. By the way, twisting this all to be back on me is a rather
ineffective method of argument. This is about inappropriate
behavior/posting on *your* part. Your lack of manners and consideration to
a newsgroup and the people that post here. Would you go so far as to
demonstrate similar behavior on a newsgroup regarding recovery from rape?
From your behavior you have exhibited so far, that would be a yes reply.
And to further illustrate the point I am making. I would never consider
going to a newsgroup for the sole purpose of disrupting it. I personally
find that behavior repulsive and a waste of time. I have better things to
do with my life. I also have a considerable respect for this technology
(newsgroups as an example) to pull the type of behavior that you seem to
think you have the *right* to do.

What about addressing the issue of needing the information here...or were
you too busy trying to figure out an appropriate break to insert you

I suspect that we have found the point of <supposed> contention. Maybe
studying contract law this summer might do you some good. Rather lame
attempt at diversion though. I think that others here discovered that there
was violations of the contract for ISP service. They took the appropriate
measures. I believe that at any time there is the "appeal" process that
could be followed through on? Obviously that was not done. So, instead of
realizing that maybe, just maybe it is time to be a grown up and make
appropriate decisions...the mentality that appears to be resorted to is to
continue the disruptive behavior. And then the only argument you can troll
with is some whining about your rights being violated. When in reality the
behavior that was in violation of the agreed upon contract is really the

Sorry hon, this is about *you* and your pals. I am not obligated to show
you something at this juncture when it is you that is being discussed. All
I have done at this point is reply to the trolling. That does not give you
the right that I perform some unspecified way to your demands.

You may now want to consider adding onto reading up not only on contract
law but what Free Speech is really about. You really have your "rights"
confused with selfish behavior.

Wrong. I have addressed this issue before. I would like to see *you* being
responsible for your behavior/posting *first*. Then if I disagree with you
I have the option of not reading your posts (although with the multiple
personalities posting like you are...I would not be able to avoid the posts
to begin with...). The responsibility to posting content is back on you.
Not me. I am responsible for what I post. I have stated already that I
should not have to monitor every single thing that my children read. I know
this is futile to even bring up to a troll...because you really don't care,
only about your selfish behavior. Maybe you think it *is* okay for a parent
to have to monitor every thing that a child reads on a newsgroup that is

If you knew anything about Free Speech...contract law and responsibility it
would not have been lost on you. Thank you for demonstrating the point that
I was baiting you on. I would guess that you are somewhere in the realm of
late teen? You must have zero initiative because at that age I had studied
contract law and even understood what it meant, was well aware of the value
of Free Speech and I sure had an understanding of responsibility and what
it truly means.
