I believe it is highly inappropriate to have a thread about a person. A
thread should always be about a subject. I am able and willing to discuss
any subject under the sun, but I do to like to be put in the position of
having to defend myself as a person all the time. Ask yourself how you would
like it.

When you post a message which has a person as the subject, you are doing
nothing but reducing ARBR to a gossip column. We do not want that. Just post
your message on a subject without any name and this newsgroup will thrive.

Here is my message corrected:

It never ceases to amaze me how these little glitches get by me. I want my
posts to be at least as letter perfect as Tom Sherman's. I think my main
problem is that I am in a rage most of the time when I am posting to ARBR. I
will have to up my vino intake to mellow me out.

Don't make me laugh! Ed Dolan's favorite topic is Ed Dolan. Do you realize
the hypocracy of starting a thread about yourself whose supposed subject is
that you don't want a thread about yourself?

You go out of your way to turn the threads into the topic of Ed Dolan. Take
for example your rant in the thread on differentials: You weren't asked your
opinion about quads. The thread had nothing to do with your opinion about
motor vehicles and the price of gas either. But you decided to insert your
idiotic opinions someplace where they didn't belong.

I thought you conservative types were men of your word. If you are a man of
your word then leave like you said you would. Otherwise stop pretending to
have any character at all.

I do not start threads about myself. Others do that. I am protesting this.

Anyone who is interested in quads on ARBR is an idiot. I am only trying to
save him from his own idiocy. My opinion about the price of gas and motor
vehicles is a freebie which I offer to the group out of the brilliance of my
mind. I ought to be charging for the service that I am providing to this
group of morons known as ARBR of which you are a charter member.

I thought you conservative types were men of your word. If you are a man
of your word then leave like you said you would. Otherwise stop pretending
to have any character at all.


I will leave this group when it stops talking about me. Do you think that
day will ever arrive?

Certain post/threads about people have been perfectly valid for
alt.rec.bicycles.recumbent. For example, there has been discussion
about John Schlitter leaving RANS, Rich Pinto joining X-Eyed/Bacchetta
and Gardner Martin's death.

Ed didn't you start the 'Milestone day for Ed Dolan' thread? And now
you don't like your name in the topic?


Well, that was a very special occasion. Anytime anyone can top Tom Sherman
is a day to note. Please note now that he has returned to ARBR how he posts
one liners. I never do that because I always have many things to say to all
the idiots that infest this newsgroup. I am prolix if nothing else.

If you will examine my posts overall, you will discover that I am primarily
a responder. I almost never initiate a subject thread. Tom Sherman is like
this too and I like him for this. If we wanted to, Tom Sherman and I could
completely dominate this newsgroup and in effect destroy it. But we both
have regard for our fellow recumbent cyclists and so we do not allow our
egos to run amuck. We both want ARBR to prosper. I assume you want that too.

Give me a break.

I can't believe your really bothered when your favorite subject comes
up so visibly. After all, you are the one trying to change this group
from being about recumbents (remember those?) to Mr. Ed's playhouse.


No, I do not want that at all. I want to discuss serious subjects seriously.
It can either be on topic or off topic. That is why I throw out so many
outrageous statements. I am a Great Fisherman but there are no fish here on
ARBR at the present moment except for the likes of JimXXX and Jeff Grippe,
both of whom are not worthy of me. It is a burden that I have to bear for
being so Great.

I will say this much. I am primarily involved with housekeeping duties here
on ARBR. I think that may come from my background as a college librarian.
Every newsgroup needs someone like me who will keep an eagle eye on things
and not let the group degenerate into mindless banter and terminal boredom.
I am death on mindless banter. If you want to chit-chat with someone, then
go to email and spare the rest of us your idiocies.

Hey guys -

More TROLL-related errata, wrongheaded rationalizations
and rabid rambling:

Just post your message on a subject without any name...


I rarely call the TROLL by name.
Ironic'ly my stated aim
Was to extinguish that strange thrill
He seems to get when someone will.
The TROLL, who thinks he's pretty slick,
Has stooped to old Brer Rabbit's trick.
But I suspect that there's a catch;
Did he say, "Not the briar patch!"?

I do not like words run together... Using separate
words is always a superior way of writing whether
technically correct or not.


Car rot is rust and crumbling plastic,
And though the TROLL may wax bombastic
With weasel words more trite than cute,
It's not a crunchy orange root.

If we wanted to, Tom Sherman and I could completely
dominate this newsgroup and in effect destroy it.


The TROLL (who never will retire)
Now threatens he could set a fire,
While stomping through this blackened site
That he burned down with smug delight.

At least old Nero played a tune,
But all we got from this buffoon
Was repetitious, raunchy rants
On women, New York Jews and France.

If this TROLL wants his threat to scare,
He really ought to be awa
It's hard to frighten anyone
About what you've already done.

Women have very many virtues, but... I like purple...
Look for hidden meanings and mysterious allusions.


That meaning isn't hidden well;
I think it's clear as any bell.
Old TROLLs that don't like girls, but do
Feel drawn to mingled red and blue,
Roll out their bikes for big parades,
Collecting funds to combat AIDS[1].

[1] Please note: AIDS is an acronym,
But 'PC' isn't. On a whim,
Another prim pedantic putz
Mislabeled that term (Such a klutz!)

... we do not allow our egos to run amuck...


By that last word the TROLL might mean
'Amok' (a variant I've seen),
Or maybe meaning 'through the muck',
A quite specific kind of yuck,
"Soft moist farmyard manure" in fact
Says one website, to be exact.
"Mysterious allusions" seem
To echo his primary theme...

I spent 4 years in the US Navy... I think it is almost
impossible for the highly educated like myself to ever
communicate with the high school crowd who thought that
college was only for snobs.


That high school crowd and college snobs,
And those of us who've worked at jobs
Are very different, it's true,
From learned TROLLS, who learned to do

Without the joys and thrills of sex
At sea, except on lower decks
With coxswains, seamen and the like.
I think I'd rather ride my trike.

My post was all about Tom Sherman and is
directed to him, not to you. [Who? Us?]


If some TROLL wants to talk to Tom,
His Bosun's Mate or either's mom,
Why not use email, sparing us
The rantings of a grizzled cuss
Who can't remember what he typed
Last Tuesday, or if he has wiped
Upon completion of a post
Which leaves us ARBR readers grossed?

Think of me as you would think of Shakespeare
and you will began [sic] to glean my profundity.


Was that a mistype of "be Gin"?
"Mysterious allusion"? [GRIN]
This TROLL's pro-fun-dity's been gleaned;
No fun was found as it was screened,
But this conclusion has been drawn:
Begin, began, begun - begone!

Regards,
Wayne

And that is a mere manifestation of his insecurity at that.
