Subjecting the writers of inappropriate posting to public 
excoriation is not a good policy because the mistake may be 
inadvertent and the follow-up postings only add further to the 
irritation of all the other regular readers.   It is better to 
reply to inappropriate posts personally or to mail a complaint 
to the postmaster of the violators source node.
	In other words, it's better net-etiquitte to send the 
violator 100's of messages than to send 100's of us this message.
	Just make sure the response is going personally
to the perpetrators box and not the whole group.
