  Thanks for your candor.

  I think the best approach is to invite people over to an entirely different
  service where they can have some say over the noise level.  Usenet with a
  volume knob, so to speak.  Since the number of opinionated idiots on the Net
  is only increasing, and good people leave because people like you want to
  destroy what made it interesting to use the forum, there is no other option
  but to give the interesting people an opportunity to be relieved of idiots.

  /You/ sure cannot expect that.

Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway                 Today, the sum total of the money I
                                          would retain from the offers in the
more than 7500 Nigerian 419 scam letters received in the past 33 months would
have exceeded USD 100,000,000,000.  You can stop sending me more offers, now.
