Is that what you call it when you were institutionalized?
I live in a world of sanity Eddie, not your half.
The staff must be proud of your cheerfull "glass half full" mentality
and that's why they let you online?

Why is it considered virtuous to work like a slave all of your life when you
really don't have to. Just don't get married, don't procreate, don't buy a
house and a new car, etc. It is really quite simple, but most men are fools
and live lives of quiet desperation.

Got fired and personality prevented you from finding another job?


Jobs are for workers (slaves) like you, not for Gods like me!

ALL TOP POSTERS ARE IDIOTS!

A troll sets up camp in a newsgroup where he's got nothing to offer and
stirs up crap.
Then he responds to any answers to create interminably long threads filled
with
interminably long messages since he never snips.

I am actually the world's best editor and know how to snip better than
anyone, but Usenet is full of idiots who do not know how to do anything much
except mouth off. Since that is the case, I feel it is better to do no
editing than to do too much editing - which is the primary mistake of almost
all Usenet users.

For instance, you have made several mistakes in your present post, but I
will let them stand so as not to confuse anyone further than you already
have.

These strings of nonsense help boost his sense of power and consequently
his
shriveled sense of self esteem.
Typical of cubicle dwellers who've been shunted off to a deadend to await
retirement.


I retired at the ripe old age of 30,


No need to clarify. We presume that you meant life rather than career.
- Jim McNamara

but I don't expect you would know
anything at all about how the other half lives.

The only order of perpetual sorrow is populated by those exposed to his
drivel.

Oh well, it's an open usenet.


Many thanks for the kind words JP. Ed Dolan the Great is always appreciative
of those who appreciate him like you do.

Ed Dolan the Great - Minnesota

Actually I require some intellectuality and that is the one thing that is

He at least tried to display some intellect from time to time. Poor Jimbo
thinks verbiage is a substitute for thought. And so it goes - no one
worthy
of me. It is apparently my destiny to go through life surrounded by
idiots,
jerks and assholes.


Intellect is a required given necessary for constructing verbiage.
What don't you understand about this basic concept ... dullard. - Jim
McNamara.


I have known several persons who could speak many foreign languages
fluently, but could never say anything sensible in any of them. In other
words, there is verbiage and then there is intellect. One requires a certain
facility, the other requires that you think. It may be that you are an idiot
savant, which is a person who has only one outstanding, almost freakish,
ability and is lacking in everything else. I always advise folks who can't
think to rely on the common sense they were born with.


Verbiage requires facility and intellect requries that you think???
You make no sense. One cannot think without intellect. Since you
obviously don't realize that, you must be devoid of intellect. Perhaps
that is why you verbiage make no sense. Lie I said before. Intellect
is requirement for intelligible vervbiage. Your replies just get worse
and worse.

How many times must you be told that no one has asked for, wants or
values you worthless advice before it sinks into that thick skull of
your??? - Jim McNamara

Jim, unlike you, I do not confuse cyperspace with real life.


It is not be, but you you has blurred the distinction here. Cyberspace
has taken on a life of its own for you. Sadly, cyberspace is your life
and the readership are all very aware of that. - Jim McNamara


Nope, not true. Usenet is nothing to me except a joke! The minute I am no
longer having any fun here, I will leave.

Sherman and
Vandeman are only what I read on my computer screen. Unless and until I
meet
them in person, that is all they can ever be.The same goes for you too of
course.

I will admit I think I was stalking Tom Sherman at one time briefly, but
I
grew disgusted with myself for doing that and I decided I would only take
him on when he got outrageously stupid. I always left him alone when he
was
posting on topic and I would only take him on when he got political. The
last year or so Tom and I did not have much to say to one another because
he
steered away from political topics almost entirely. He knew far more
about
recumbents than I did and I respected him for that.

Gee Eddie, who's said virtuous?
It's not called virtuous, it's called rewarding.

I got married, had three sons, bought a house, have new cars, new bikes,
big ass TV,
big ass computer, and other stuff you don't care about, oh yeah, and stuff
for the kids as well.
Started my own business, run my own show, wife started her own business,
runs her own show, make our own lives, ran races, studied martial arts,
teach tai chi,
write, ride bikes. Oh and by the way, we started with zero, no family
money or connections,
no outside help, no special talents except the brains with which we were
born.
It's nice to feel plugged into the world, productive, active and successful.
Saves me having to call myself "the great" and hide my lack of self esteem
by trolling
in newsgroups and calling people names like a preadolescent.

People are generally surrounded by those like themselves and if you find
yourself surrounded
by " characters who are idiots, jerks and assholes" chances are you qualify
for inclusion in that
very same group. Of course since you have imposed yourself on this group
rather than the other
way around those in alt.bike.whatever don't meet that description.

She and I lived in Minneapolis for a few years and the people there tend to
be very nice;
generous, polite and kind. I guess they've been too nice to straighten you
out or is it that
you only share the obnoxious part of your psyche from the secure anonymity
of usenet?
I'm glad though that you've chosen not to marry or procreate, it would
bother me a bit to
know that you'd inflicted yourself on human beings. This is really a better
spot for you
since you are always just a mouseclick away from oblivion.

Curtiss, it is now time for you to shut up concerning Vandeman.
There is nothing you can say about his posts and him that you have
not already said a thousand times before. Give some others an
opportunity to respond to his posts.

Anybody can respond to any post. My posts do not stop a single
person from reading or responding to any other post.
Take a valium and relax. Your poor little heart must be about to
burst.

Yes, I used to say that in response to others who would complain
about my posts to ARBR, but take a look at RBS. How do you account
for the fact it is all about you and Vandeman. ARBR was never like
RBS that way. Something is dreadfully wrong when a newsgorup is all
about just one or two persons. You desperately need to stop
responding to Vandeman. You are both one note Johnnys and you have
ruined RBS. I was never a one note Johnny.


Really...? Then I would suggest you drop it. After all, you spread
the Vandy topic into other realms of rec/alt bicycles. You have
continued the topic with silly accusations and your own attempts to
draw attention away from your cross-posting disaster.


"You desperately need to stop responding to Vandeman. You are both one
note Johnnys and you have ruined RBS. I was never a one note Johnny."
- Ed Dolan

You are merely extending the topic so you can continue to claim it is
someone else's fault. If you want to post on point concerning the
opinions of MV, have at it. Otherwise, this thread is dead. The same
"argument" in several spots. Beyond meaningless.


"You desperately need to stop responding to Vandeman. You are both one
note Johnnys and you have ruined RBS. I was never a one note Johnny."
- Ed Dolan

Any further responses will be in the thread titled "Impotence" as
that best describes the influence of ed dolan the minimal, aka: st
edward the sorrowfully miniscule.


"You desperately need to stop responding to Vandeman. You are both one
note Johnnys and you have ruined RBS. I was never a one note Johnny."
- Ed Dolan [...]



These guys can do anything they damn well please, as you can too.

It is you, who needs to desperately stop defending Vandy, he is capible
of doing this by him self.

JP is the upwardly mobile idiot who thinks himself successful because he did
not starve to death like the savages in Africa regularly do. I have nothing
but contempt for him and all his so-called accomplishments. His piffling
"production" would not be "rewarding" to me in the slightest. He is the
quintessential materialist. I feel sorry for the poor slob.

Minnesotans are the biggest jerks in the world bar none! Most of the time I
am ashamed to be from such a fouled up state. The one thing I would like
most to do in his world is to get my hands around the throat of Garrison
Keillor and choke that stupid son of a bitch to death. To hell with him and
his prairie home companion. And most especially to hell with any who think
like him.

I am not so much defending Vandeman as I am attacking Curtiss for being such

category yourself. Please put your brain into gear before you post.

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.


Ed ... yes, I'm addressing you personally, whether you like it or not
... your response can be considered as nothng less that an admission
that your reading comprehesnion skills are second rate, and you were
once a librarian??? How sadl!!! - Jim McNamara


You may be addressing me, but I am addressing a universe of unknown readers.
You merely serve as a vehicle for what I want so say. Keep those messages
coming to me personally and I will keep my messages going to a universe of
readers.


But you do address individuals. The very focus and context of what you
write defines specifically to whom your response is directed. As for
the universe of unknown readers, well I don't share in your delusion
the I am writing for a universe of unknown readers. Have you forgotten
to exclud the universe of known readers who have kill-filed you?.
