    Let me ask you this:

    What is the functional difference between JD flaming someone and what you have done in this post?

    I'll wait for the good hypocrite to be courageous and admit his logical error, or try and attempt
    more obfuscation. RW, you may want to think twice about that - I know my way around.

    Uh, Dave? It's great that you recognize something when someone explains it to you. You may wish
    to read again the parenthetical remarks that I made. I am guessing that you believe you are the

    And what does that have to do with the price of OEM Shimano XT parts?

    The simple fact is that the JD of USENET is not the JD of Real Life(tm.)

    USENET is full of all sorts of whackjobs who can hide behind a keyboard and be someone they're not.
    If JD want to be one of them, what can *you* do about it? That's right, nothing. You can only do
    something about *you*.

    > JD was very polite to me in private email as a fellow WebTv user. When I questioned his rudness to
    > posters, I was suddenly put on his shit list.

    Yeah, so? You said your piece, and now you reap the reward. Life's all about choices.

    > You can continue to condone his behavior and wipe his ass.

    Well, I would have remembered wiping his ass, and I don't think I got that drunk. Actually, I think
    I was getting friendly with Paladin, but I just can't remember...

    In any case, I do not condone or condemn his posting behavior, because I can do nothing to change
    it. That's REALITY, RW, like it or not.

    > Some of us choose to go our own way and not kowtow to some Usenet pussy.

    Yes, I can see that you are plenty tough. It's easy on USENET. Tough guys are a dime a dozen until
    you get their noses unglued from their CRTs.

    You have applied your brain properly to the analogy.

    This is the Duhski method of worldly interpretation. Frankly, I thought you were smarter than to
    cast your lot in with the likes of Spanky and DogPoop - but if it takes you to carry their water, it
    makes no difference to me. I just don't think there's much future to
    it. After all, you're not going to cahnge anything, and you only look like a fool for trying.

    BTW, if you want to claim the moral high ground on a.m-b flaming, I suggest you stop doing it
    yourself. The righteous don't wear hypocrisy that well...

    Yup, you are as clueless as ever. It's impossible to be discredited by a faceless piece of shit,

    JD flames a poster (newbie) for asking a simple question. AFAIK, I've never done that.

    When I was a newbie and on Webtv to boot, JD would email me asking me not to leave am-b because I
    had been in flame wars with more experianced posters and he didn't want all the webtv people being
    run off. Now, as soon as a newbie posts, he's all over their ass for being stupid (in his opinion)
    and they post a little, then give up.

    Oh, that's a HUGE mountain biking destination. Maybe we should forego Idaho and go there to ride
    next Summer. Yeah, leave it to a kerr like you to hyde in a shithole like clearfield. Maybe
    being the town

    That's a HUGE insult! I get tired of hearing about your size, your military rank, and how nice you
    are in person. You're just as your prototype Spider described, a Usenet wuss that only acts like
    this behind the keyboard. Then again, the folks I met this weekend illustrated how one person can
    shape an opinion of a town.

    >Maybe we should forego Idaho and go there to ride next Summer.

    Please do, there would be lots to do for you daughter. OOOOOPPSSS, I forgot, you claim to be a good
    father, but all you really do is galavant across the country and support her with money, and claim
    that you are a good father.

    So, flaming isn't the problem, but who gets flamed is. That's an artificial distinction that I don't
    recognize as significant. If you are whining about somebody being an asshole, being one yourself
    carries no moral authority.

    But some don't. The fact is, too many people come to view USENET as some magical "free answer zone."
    Frankly, if they don't like the iniation, they don't have to join the club. Anyone who lurks for a
    few days could figure out that this ng has a certain cast of characters.

    If you're not adult enough to take some heat for a dumb question, then you shouldn't be hanging out
    in USENET.

    Sorry, but I don't accept your artificial distinction. But it is a very nice weasel.

    The reason you keep hearing it is because *you* are being an asshole. If you don't like assholes in
    a.m-b., why do you insist on being one?

    No, it's not. That's why we don't have all the trail issues that you are always crying about. Sucks

    See, that's why you're such a putz. The trails here are uncrowded. Devoid of pussies like you who
    have to keep crying about access, off-trail riding, barnies, etc. Keep enjoying your overcrowded
    biking hotspot while I enjoy the solitude of unknown and underused trails.

    Even *if* this event happened, then your "friends" were probably royally destructive barney fools
    that deserved some constructive instruction. Maybe even a decent ass-whuppin. If we don't speak up,
    then these idiots get our trails closed.

    I yelled at an idiot to get a helmet one afternoon. Half an hour later I was patching up his bloody
    mug, (risking Aids and who knows what, mind you) because he was a clueless fool.)

    So this gal was riding Fruita trails after a month on a mountainbike? Come on, even a
    veracity-challenged, fabricating prevaricator like yourself can do better than that.

    Besides, the more you rail at JD, (whom you haven't even met) the smaller you shrink and the greener
    with envy you appear.

    To Spider, you're good at this flame-fest bizness, but be careful who you invite to Idaho. My
    razorback hog back at the trailer has standards regarding the company its willing to keep.

    Others do. Your influence on what I percieve to be true is insignificant. Keep following Farcas.

    If wrenches in State College have heard of Mike " ", why would it be so impossible for this
    encounter to have occurred?

    Other people also think the world is flat, and that the moon landings were faked. I don't put much
    stock in what any particular group of people think.

    Heh. I'm not whining about anyone being an asshole. I'm not posting bitching about it, or calling
    names about it, or any other thing. So, it is *not* actually the pot calling the kettle black, but
    exposing your hypocrisy on the issue.

    Yes. And you, and Duhski and anyone else. There are plenty of people who have trouble with what the
    "alt" in the newsgroup hierarchy means, and you seem to be one of them. If you or he or anyone else
    doesn't like my methods or posts, you are quite free to learn to operate your newsreader in a manner
    that facilitates filtering on authors or content - or both.

    I have posed some dumb questions in USENET, and taken heat. Life is hard. I got over it. What's
    your excuse?

    Reference faked moon landings.

    > Your influence on what I percieve to be true is insignificant.

    Ahh, but I am not trying to influence you in any way. As I have said before, in case you weren't
    paying attention, I do not believe that you can change anybody who does not wish to change, and in
    USENET, the only real influence someone has is on themselves. Having a laugh at the expense of the
    hypocritical fools who think that they can stop flaming by flaming is all part of this great medium
    that provides so much enjoyment.

    I speak to you about logic because I had imagined that you would be able to discern logical truth
    from logical fallacy. I am sorry that I was wrong.

    I am considering the source and the message. Impossible? No. Highly improbable, in the realm of
    fiction? Most certainly.
