Well. I go away for a few weeks to come back and find that my
thread has been hijacked by a bunch of Canadians. What's up with
that? Was the winter unusually harsh up there this year? Or was
it the lack of a hockey season? Did someone drop a curling stone
on your toe? Sheesh. Knock it off. Newbies looking in will see
the "she said/she said" fight as something very offputting. So,
here is something you can use to temper your words:

Dear __________,

Thank you for your interest in alt.support.thyroid. At this time,
we do not have any openings that would be right for your particular
abilities. To assist you in your search for an appropriate newsgroup
that will meet your needs, we have detailed below the reasons why we

__ You are obnoxious.
__ You appear to be completely bat-shit insane.

We hope that this information will be useful to you in finding an
appropriate newsgroup to meet your needs. We wish you the best in
your search.

Sincerely,

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in
case of an emergency. I think you should write, "A Good Doctor!"

I love it! That's funny.

Where have you been? I didn't see anything on the bulletin board about
you taking vacation.

Sorry, John, I forgot to tell you that I told the boss that deT was
busy doing research. Some research that was too. Did you see the mud
on his boots when he got back? He came straight to the office from
his, er, research trip, so I saw those boots. Good thing I didn't
tell the boss that the research was about finding the best fishing
spots. ;-)

Welcome back, deT. We missed you.

Proof positive, deT is a real engineer.

(You can tell a real engineer by the mud on his boots.
(The theory guys never leave the pavement.))

Well, I did tell people how to block particular posters. ;-)

But [sob] I didn't think that you'd [sob] ... that isn't really it,
is it? No, of course not. Someone's gotta post these photos for you.

I found a photo of one of them here: http://tinyurl.com/cqf87 . Now I

The boss was very impressed with your research report, BTW. In fact,
you have a new expense account as a result. You can see your
personalized business credit card at http://tinyurl.com/dck4j .

You said fish. I said that the mud was evidence of his, er, research
into fish. He said that the mud wasn't mud and was from his other
profession as a pig farmer.

There's something fishy about all of this. I sure hope the newsgroup
boss isn't reading this thread. ;-)

[Drum roll...] I just came across some pig jokes that I don't
remember seeing here before. As for why I'd be surprised that I
hadn't seen them before, look at who I'm responding to. :-)
