So you are saying this is the type of welcoming that any new subscriber to
news.groups can expect? Kind of a cross between a roast and a pissing
contest? Just insecure little boys marking their territory?
It would seem that certain Usenet addicted shut-ins have far too much time
on their hands with nothing constructive to do. Maybe what they really need
is mentoring and a big brother? They should at least try to spend more time
in the real world. (And I'm not talking about that awful show on MTV.)
