Yay, I made his list. Of course, if I replied, this means I always got
the last word in any [sub]thread in which he participated. Haven't a
clue what his intent may be. You don't bother telling someone that you
killfiled them. You just do it and move on. It's actually quite
childish to announce that you're going to plonk someone. At a party, do
you actually go searching for someone in particular to tell them that
you aren't going to listen to them anymore? That act itself gives more
importance to the other party than to the one making the announcement.
I see he is still stuck using Microsoft's NNTP server and hasn't
bothered to move to another NNTP server where these newsgroups will
continue to survive (but without all the noise posts from knee-jerk
posting boobs with no initiative to research before asking while
providing no details for anyone to work with to suggest solutions).
