I've been on c.l.py for around two years. Your statement
is rude and assumes things you have not bothered to check

There is a very simple rule for dealing with trolls, which most
usenet newbies learn sooner or later. If you think someone is
trolling, simply ignore them. Don't answer their posts, don't
comment on them, don't even give them the gratification of
a reply that says: "plonk!" Just killfile them and quit wasteing
bandwidth. You've got better things to do with your time than
maintaining an interaction that you find aggrevating.
