  That would be a charitable interpretation of someone who needs to publish
  that kind of articles, but I guess you could be right.  Even so, two tasteless
  people do not good taste make.  I cannot for the life of me figure out why
  some people have to post gratuitously hostile comments about anyone.

  RoadRunner has had at least one recurring forging, abusive troll and does
  nothing to stop their abusive customers.  I can only assume that it is the
  criminal's choice ISP in Austin, Texas.  Every city or major region seems to
  have one of those and there is nothing one can do to stop them short of
  cutting off their ability to inject articles into Usenet at all.  Still, when
  their customers misbehave so badly, just ignore them completely.
