Why would anyone use a Micro$oft product when better, free alternatives
are available? (Assuming that they are given a choice.)

For the sheer convenience! Every time I download an alternative, I am in
danger of ****ing-up my computer!

Let's face it, Microsoft is what made the computer what it is today, a
common appliance found in just about every home in America. Does Mr. Sherman
have an Apple Mac and/or does he use the Linux OS? I suspect not!

I haven't got around to installing TBird at home. Last year when I
tried it, it sucked too much. The current version seems ok - I'm using
it at work.

The "Huh?" was more about you telling me to use a newsreader that will
let me respond to your posts in lieu of you not doing funny things to
your header.

So huh?

A common appliance much cursed by everyone, except those who have the
brains and the money to buy a Mac.

Does Mr. Sherman
have an Apple Mac


Of course he doesn't.
1. He's an engineer. Nobody's explained to him yet that there's an
easier way to do things.
2. If he had a Mac, his temper and manners would be much improved.
They aren't, ergo he doesn't have a Mac.

Alas, usenet is not. It's a 7-bit medium.

All headers must be ASCII. Header titles
must be exactly as prescribed. HOWEVER... there are
means to communicate and render glyphs outside
ASCII. You have some reading to do, but I
promise it is rewarding reading.

The last time I looked, Macs continue to be super expensive whereas PCs
keeps dropping in price. I have seen Windows 7 Home Premium desktop
computers for $300 at Wal-Mart. It is all about money, not brains. Wal-Mart
has also put our local bike shop out of business and for the same reason ...
price!

My header is UTF-8 compliant.


Not saying that it isn't. OE is not the best, especially not for nntp.
But I have my OE set to accept UTF-8 headers. I can read your posts
at home but when I try to reply, it
fails telling me the header is too long. Since I use the same news
server here as at home, it must be the OE.

But a lot of people use OE.
