"Pooh-Pooh Pritchler" has been getting under my screen
again.

Now, "Pooh-Pooh" is not a real person but merely a
construct based on the way certain strings of words have
assembled on my monitor when I'm reading the writing
group that Pooh Pooh loiters in.

That is not to say Pooh Pooh's a straw man, of course.
He's here all right and he would not miss reading this
posting for the world.

Hi, Pooh Pooh. Good to see ya' back.

As you may know, old Pooh-Pooh's a member emeritus
in the Usenet Levellers Society. Members of that
very traditional club hold that since nobody gets
paid for his Usenet writing, then all Usenet writers
are equal, not only in rights and responsibilities, but
in talent, number of readers, and follow-up.

All are equal, and all post pooh-pooh.

Well, as the Word Screen Man, I am assembling
here before you to say...say? No, to SHOUT--


"WELL, POOH ON YOU, POOH POOH PRITCHLER!"


Pooh Pooh's irritating behavior seems unbounded
at times.

He knows very well that I have a few-hundred
Google GEMS (Google mentions) of proof of
my being the world's first Word Screen Man,
so now--after apparently feelling foolish for
proclaiming that any such thing was
impossible--he declares that we are
ALL word screen men or at least word
screen people.

Uh, uh, Pooh Pooh, not so fast here.

As the original Word Screen Man, I can tell you
you are not a word screen person--


a) If you fancy that your real readers are out
there someplace in the "real world," and if
if show by your snooty remarks that you
feel you are slumming in Usenet
newsgroups.

Pooh Pooh, did you ever ONCE stop and
think how insulting that sort of thing is to
your readers?


b) If you snootily sniff that no one does REAL
writing in Usenet and you become rather
vindictive when anyone proves you wrong.

(Most of all, if you bend over backwards to
ignore the same real writing that reveals
you for, if not a liar, then at least a dragger
with your BUTT offensively protruding into
Usenet and your head firmly ensconced'
in print world literary tradition.)


c) If you lack the writer's spine or whatever it
is that at least sometimes lets you roll
your thoughts from your mind right into
the net, to maximize your originality
of expression.


So, you see, it srtikes me as very ironic that
Pooh Pooh Pritchler would come out with a
statement that everyone is now a word screen
person when the sum of his assembled words
in these and other groups says just the opposite.

Huey, where the heck ARE you and what time did you tell your computer it
was? Your posts always show up (at least on my newsreader) as being from
tomorrow! Hence, they stay at the top while lesser posts come in below
them. If you've found a way to get to tomorrow early, it would be nice if
you could let the rest of us know what we can expect from it!

Still trolling me, eh, Huey? And of course, I think all our readers
are well-aware that a cretinous slob like you would OF COURSE
be an entusiastic member of the "Usenet Leveller Society"
(putting you in the good company of Pooh Pooh Pritchler)
since the (satirically created) ULS makes you feel like your
troglodyte grunts are the equal of the posted productions of
the (ahem) best writers on the net. They aren't. Your posted
grunts only amaze readers by showing them how closely
your poorly-assembled words approximate the sounds
that might be expected to emanate from a warthog'
with mad cow disease..

[...] Snip of the rest of the post since Warthog Huey
the Mad Butcher of Usenet hacked it all up, in
.his nutty frenzy.

What's *real* about any writing, whether it's done on paper, carved in
stone or glowing on a word screen, paid for or free? Words are only
*real* when they enter the mind of the reader and then they are only
as *real* in their effects. There is no substitute for good writing.
