then go to a moderated forum where an editor will get rid of the
idiots and their idiotic messages.

I repeat, there is no one on these newsgroups (unmoderated) except
assholes and jerks! What else do you need to know?


You are, of course, including yourself in that group of assholes and
jerks.


Yes, I am, but only for the purposes of Usenet. Mainly I am slumming on
these newsgroups to see how the other half lives and thinks. My every
expectation has been fulfilled in spades. Like I said, nothing but assholes
and jerks!

It was never my intention to dominate a newsgroup and I am sure

threads, but it seems that it doesn't matter. Others simply go
away and
before you know it all there is on these groups is Dolan and
Vandeman. I
think both of us in our separate ways serve as a catalyst for a
few others
who take us on. Our messages become increasingly contentious and
finally
we
are preventing others from coming onto the group. That is
certainly not
my
intention and I know it is not Vandeman's intention either. But
what to
do
about it?

Tis a simple problem with a simpl solution ... L E A V E !!!!!

Well, that is ONE possible solution, but then what would I have to
do. Besides, I add interest to what would otherwise be a very dull
group. It would not be fair to those who come to ARBR and RBS
expecting some entertainment.

Thanks for validating what I said of you in the past ... Ed Dolan has
little more than ARBR from which to derive meaning in his life. The
Usenet newsgroup (particularly ARBR) has assumed an exaggerated
prominence in his hierarchical order of relevance. The Usenet
newsgroup (particularly ARBR) has emerged as the source from which he
garners his sense of accomplishment and self-esteem. Regardless of
his opinion of the readership, without the lifeblood of the Usenet
newsgroup audience to sustain him, Ed Dolan has nothing and is
nothing. What a pathetic shallow existence. Pity the cantankerous,
misguided, quintessential fool. It must really suck to be head
swollen ... HEAD Dolan.

Jim McNamara


Here is Jim yet once more expressing all those doubts about himself.
It is really too bad he cannot go forth into the world like Ed Dolan
the Great, oblivious to all but himself. I stopped checking my
credentials with others by the time I was out of my teens, but
apparently some guys just never get out of their teens.


There is nothing more to say here, Jim said it all with blazing accuracy


Jim is into nothing but gobbledygook. He has always been that way. But it is
good to see one turkey (Chris) recognize another turkey (Jim).

Perhaps discussions of gearing, frame types, cycling routes and such is
EXACTLY what people post for. There a million sites for
"entertainment". Why read about the non-sexual proclamations of a
self-absorbed individual when I want to know what gearing I should have
when visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway?

Nope, I cannot believe there are any humans who are so dead that they
would limit themselves to what you propose. Either be a complete human
being or be gone! I know better than you what is good for you!


Who is being limited? With a million websites (and other NGs) dedicated
to entertainment, who needs you to post junk? We're smart enough to find
entertainment on our own. Here is a place for information we can use and
share to enhance our cycling experience. Reading the ramblings of a
psychiatric throwaway does'nt [doesn't] cut it.

You didn't have to work so hard to prove you are an idiot, asshole and jerk.
We've known that for quite some time.

Nice try Conan, I have the e-mail you initially sent me. You started
the e-mail exchange. I just got you so ****ed that you just had to do
it, didnt you. You can deny it, but I got the proof. And here it is:

See where is states:

"Chris Foster" wrote in message

That means I wrote my message in the news server.
All the rest of the header is a e-mail header.

To sum it up. You stated the e-mail exchange, now you are tring to deny
it, Vandy, would of course, type the word liar in all caps, but that is
simply too childish for me.


Nope, I got your message in my email box and I did not see in on the
newsgroup. I NEVER send anyone an email message that is connected to the
newsgroups unless I get an email from them first. My standard policy is to
discourage all such communication as I like to keep Usenet separate from my
real life. Elementary, my dear Watson!

What a lame comeback ... brain-dead. Is that the best you can do???
Ed Dolan is intoxicated by his own cerebral flatulence. His screeds
(read Gospels according to St. Edward) are legendary. A pretentious
purveyor of disinformation, Ed employs cyclical, incoherent rhetoric to
advocate his own personal agenda. He subscribes to the mistaken notion
that the readership savors his prosaic prefunctory prattle whereas in
reality the only person who values what the man says is the man saying
it. Ed is a pedant who is enraptured by his own vacuous gibberish.

Not bad gobbledygook coming from a turkey, huh Ed??? Chris Foster,
GaryG, Bill Baka and cc are just a few of the many who have come to
know you for what and who you are. Your reputaton as ARBR's
quintessential TROLL will forever be your legacy. You can take leave
of us now. Can't do it can you? After all, Usenet is your life. How
sick is that???

jerk of them all. I set the standard for one and all. I believe I can state
with absolute assurance that I am the Greatest Idiot, the Greatest Asshole
and the Greatest Jerk that Usenet has ever known in its' long and dishonored
history. For Christ's sakes, I prove it every time I post. Can't any of you
