Of course it replied to me, but its reply wasn't a response
to what I posted.

Considering all the noise in this one thread (even before
the spammer kicked in), no surprise there is a lot of noise
in the group.

I have no idea why this troll is clueless,
maybe it should ask its mother...

Firstly, my original post to which no one has contributed anything yet is
not a crosspost. Besides, the group "free.spam" is an inactive group, so
it's not really a crosspost since it doesn't disturb any normal person.

Seems like a bit much, but all the effort to keep the thread alive
is appreciated...

September was the month that AOL first offered Usenet access to the members of its service. The problem wasn't students, it was AOL users and after that, the influx of users with new internet access. Then came the spammers. Usenet has pretty much been ****ed up since then.

A kill file is for dummies.

No intelligent person hides the activity of their foe.

Besides, most kill file users are not smart enough (or not capable, like a
Google groups user) to ignore a thread branch, so they end up stumbling over
replies to the person in their kill file. The only thing a kill file does is
let a not quite grown up poster taunt other people about being kill filed.

Mutual blocking would be an entirely different matter. But, unfortunately,
that's not available.

The best and only really useful USENET filter is "ignore thread branch", to
ignore a thread or subthread with a single key.

Yeah. It must be driving Bruce crazy that non of the legitimate posters
bother to respond to him even when he is forging me. What a coincidence
that we now have a new one whining about kill files.

Perhaps I should feel honoured that the pathetic twit has tried to gain
a little legitimacy here by forging me. If he were a little smarter he
might realize what a failure that has been.

When I reply to David's forger I'm replying to Bruce even though he's too
childish to step from behind the curtain. It's almost as if he's taken on
John Kuthe's persona.

A few get through, but most are easy to identify. LOL, the troll(s)
don't get it that many of us have known one another for decades.

Hehe yeah, I saw that. Not sure if related to troll but any out of the
blue diatribe against killfiles is apt to be troll signature.

Yes, some people aren't able to make that distinction, though.

I have a reason for using Dave's name (and adding that I'm not him).
I've explained it a few times, but it should be obvious, except to
Dave, apparently.

It wasn't part of the curriculum. They got an account for their
coursework (almost all were engineering or computer science dweebs)
and discovered this great place where they could annoy people all
over the world.

AOL doesn't have anything to do with it. Universities had Usenet long before AOL
was a gleam in Steve Case's eye.

Before usenet we had BB = Bulletin Boards, it was novel and led to
usenet which was far better.

Exactly. And I don't have to see my own 'alter ego' posting things
that obviously I never said.

I sometimes do to. Some people even drink something called "branch water". Sometimes even with bourbon. Its called a Bourbon and Branch. Not that absolutely every single DAMN thing that I have to say has to always have something to do with drinking)

Seems you've recently changed to adding the 'not him' sig yet you
still use his name and email. So the sig is meaningless. You really
are a low life.

If you want to talk about the obvious, then lets start with your
obviously bullshit 'reason' you just had to forge Dave. Is it just
some random coincidence you somehow chose Dave, out of everyone on the
group? One of a certain group of people here you've been trolling for
years?

If your 'reason' is honorable and legit, then why not prove it by
forging Ophelia instead? Hmm??

I understand that. Most of the posters back in the early days had Usenet accounts through educational, research, military, scientific, and industrial, institutions. Because of this, It was expected that the postings would reflect well on the associated institutions. Most of the posters these days were introduced to Usenet through their internet service providers. What yoose guys don't get is that "Eternal September" weren't referring to hoards of moronic students being able to log on and write stupid schoolboy crap, it was the hoards of moronic citizens like yoose and me being allowed access to Usenet as a feature of their personal internet service account and being able to write stupid schoolboy crap.

I never said Eternal September was not about AOL. I said that Septembers on Usenet
were weird before AOL ever came along.
