  then why don't you guys ever _start_ moralizing against the provokers,
  only against the _other_ people who react to them?  don't you understand
  that in the eyes of the village idiots, you're defending them, and very
  much _encouraging_ further mindless drivel and braindamaged chit-chat?
  why do you want more of that, Coby?  is this newsgroup served better by
  your (and a few other people's) moralizing in defense of inanities than
  the occasional personal attack against which you, TOO, have to speak up
  to voice that ever-important concern about form and behavior?

  moralizers can follow their own advice: take it to e-mail, shut up, or
  ignore it.  if _you_ can't do that, don't ever expect anyone else to.

  stick to _technical_ contents and _cut_ the meta-discussions, will you?
