(JERUSALEM POST) -- A 79-year-old man from Tel Aviv had to undergo
emergency surgery to remove a beer bottle from his rectum, the India
Times reported last week.

The man claimed that the bottle was shoved up his backside by thieves
who were upset that he didn't have any valuables for them to steal.

The man arrived at Golda Meir Hospital in extreme pain, and the bottle
was found after a series of x-rays. He then underwent surgery because
the bottle was too far up to pull out by hand.

With the Cinnamon toast crunch flavor, the main ingredients are mushrooms, a naturally flavored chocolate sweetened wheat and rice cereal with a hint of cinnamon.

One of his targets was "Mimi" (?). I arrived here just after Mimi

I was here when each showed up. At some point after he'd driven Mimi and Polar out
of here, he decided to stop trying to drive out those who went off
topic because the effort was futile.
Thanks! I will.

Your envy is palpable. You manage to offend without a trace

You are notorious for your inability to perceive subtexts. Or even

Were Mimi and Polar two different people? I thought it could have
been two names used by the same person. Neither posted during my
tenure here, but there were references to both names.

"Off topic" doesn't bother me because any discussion (in English) on
any subject involves the usage of English. Sometimes, a word or
phrase in a seemingly off-topic post triggers a string of posts that
are on-topic.

Speaking of missing things, Peter, have you noticed that the whole
point of talking about "celibate" ancestors was acknowledging
that they were not actually celibate?

Okay, I have to agree with you here. Polar, Mimi, and the others
in no way deserved to be abused. It was easy to scroll past if
one had no interest in their posts.

Polar was part of this group before I discovered it in November 1994.
Mimi joined after I'd been here for a while. Polar seemed to be trying
to keep her sex unknown, but Rey referred to her as a woman and
she didn't deny it, IIRC. Before Rey showed up, I found some of
Polar's off-topic posts to be thought provoking. Mimi was very
different. She admitted that most of her online experience was
in an AOL group where people posted in the style she was
using, and apparently, they defended one another. She left after
making a call for AUE denizens to rise up against Rey. That post
received no responses.

Polar was part of a group of AUE ex-denizens who started
alt.english.usage. The major benefit of being in that group
was that Rey was not their abusing them.

Still, I respected Rey and Bob for their overall contributions to the

My only fault of Rey is that he drove Padraig Breathnach away. Padraig
stated that he was leaving because he wasn't supported by the rest of
the group in his difficulties with Rey. I thought Paidraig was a
valuable member of the group.

When Rey answered my posts, he provided useful information.
If he swore, I would have ignored it.

I don't know how I've forgotten Simon Hughes. (I think I've been
away for 15 years though.) When I showed up, Bob Cunningham
was frequently bickering with Truly Donovan and Evan Kirshenbaum.
As I remember it, the person who argued with you the most was an
American living in Ireland. Maybe his first name was Charley or
Charles.

Familiar regarding e.g. Catholic clergy. Makes no sense regarding
some random Dutchie who happened to have the same name as
JJ's favorite poet.

Charles Riggs. He was an American living in Ireland. Suspected of
having some mental difficulties due to how erratic his postings were.
Perfectly normal at times, and off-the-rails at other times.

He complained about not being able to buy some American product in
Ireland that he greatly missed. (I forget what it was) I bought two
cans of it and mailed them to him as a gift. The postage cost was
fairly hefty.

He received them, but then claimed to have poured the contents in the
trash because he feared I'd put poison in them.

Later, he was admitted to a hospital in Dún Laoghaire and complained
that he hadn't been able to bring his laptop to the hospital and had
to use some other computer in the dayroom. I called the Matron and
she arranged to have his laptop picked up, but he stopped posting in
aue. I had several phone conversations with him, and exchanged some
letters. Maria Conlon also kept in touch by letter and phone when he
was in Dún Laoghaire.

I believe I met Mimi at LINGUIST List, where we bonded as
Cornell alumni -- she 1955, me 1972. (There was a time when
LL was not just a commercial announcement service for
publishers, conference organizers, and job offerers. It served
the way Language Log does nowadays.)

But it appears from the occasional crosspostings hither that
they're fairly bad-tempered and humorless.

No idea who Simon Hughes was. Bob Cunningham was an ignorant
pest who would post anti-linguistics inanities to sci.lang and was
unteachable.

Name one for each that had to do with the Usage of English.

Then why didn't you support him? If my experience is a guide, then
you piled on him, repeating the dead sociopath's lies about him.

Mimi didn't leave immediately, though. She took on a new name and, with
the aid of a group of enthusiastic sock-puppets, conducted the dirtiest
campaign I have ever seen in a newsgroup. She will not be missed.
