You win my unofficial contest for "Usenet Tool of the Year."  It is
not difficult to skip to the next file or to add a sender to a
killfile.  It is certainly less of a hassle than all this complaining
you do.

Life is short, John Bokma.  There are more important things in the
world than tattling on Xah to his host.  Maybe you can start
experiencing them if you learn to make use of the 'next message' key.

I've noticed it - but have you?  

It would be only one post that could easily be ignored, if not for all
this rubbish that you and people like you feel the need to post (sure,
I realize I'm contributing to the problem).  Isn't "hit & run posting"
better than a thread full of nonsense?

You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most
famous is, "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only
slightly less well-known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian when
death is on the line"!
