I suppose. I've never used it becuase I'm not willing to admit that
*anyone* can get that far under my skin... an ex-wife, maybe, but not
an ASCII stream. Usually, they simply bore me to the point where I'm
no longer motivated to click on their messages, thus "blocking"
Personally, I prefer someone who pisses me off and challenges my world
view, Every now and then, someone on Usenet will do so... mostly it's
mindless noise, but I read hoping someone will astound me.
