I actually don't notice anonymous postings from Tom Kunich. I don't
need my attention drawn to them, either. IMHO his stuff is not
something I want to read.

Many people seem to like to play Tom's game and give him attention and
reinforcement for his posts. The simple solution is to learn how to
use a killfile and to put Tom and all his alter egos into it. If you
need to spend all this energy on the guy, it's you who need to get a
clue and possibly a life as well. Ignore him, he'll go away. And fer
pete's sake stop spamming all the rec.bikes newsgroups with this crap!

Dear Tim, it would be really interesting if you could inform me what my
"alter egos" are. Why is it that you seem unaware of the various spoofs that
are out there? Roger is presently being investigated by the FBI for his
great work on the internet.

But thanks for your intellectual pursuit of the truth.

As far as I can tell, from reading your posts for over 10 years, is
that you (1) routinely post malarkey and (2) have a tendency to be
paranoid as all get-out. Your bitterness about your personal life
situation spills over into completely unrelated stuff, such as the
rec.bikes newsgroups. Hence you have been residing in my killfiles
for years and only turn up in my summary buffer when you change ISPs.

I don't care about your alter egos, nor do I care about your most
recent tiff with whomever. I do think it over the top for people to
post your personal information to Usenet, but on the other hand your
consistent antagonistic stance towards everyone else earns you that
sort of vituperation. In short, if you want people to treat you
better, treat them better and stop acting like a net.kook. You can't
credibly act like an asshole and then claim to be a victim- no one
will take it seriously.

After reading this thread maybe we should create a sub-group called,
"Rec.Bicycles.Tech~TwilightZone."

I don't know what started this as I haven't read this newgroup for a
while, but if "Tom Kunich" is causing trouble, it's not the real guy.
I've often had exchanges with Tom Kunich and he would teach most others
on this newsgroup how to behave.

You posted that I used alter egos and now you post that my personal life
spills over into my postings. Yet somehow you don't seem to have any
citations. Is this because it is all in your imagination or because you
don't agree with my postings and feel perfectly safe in not actually posting
something about the postings you don't agree with but easily post lies here
on a subject so broad that you feel that you can get away with it? Most of
us would consider that a form of cowardice. I hadn't realized that about you
but now will keep that in mind whenever I read another of your postings.

I don't care about your alter egos, nor do I care about your most
recent tiff with whomever.


But you are perfectly willing to imply that I somehow post under different
names despite the fact that I've been on the group with my true name for
over a decade. I suppose stabbing a man in the back with lies comes
naturally to you.

I do think it over the top for people to post your personal information
to Usenet,


But fair game to print vicious lies about. Yeah, got you.

but on the other hand your consistent antagonistic stance
towards everyone else earns you that sort of vituperation.

credibly act like an asshole and then claim to be a victim- no one

If there's one thing that I've continously done since the first of the news
groups it's to put people like you in your place. I suppose that's the real
source of your irritation.

Kunich is reverting to form. When he sees the word "helmet,"
he goes competely irrational and starts to become abusive.



So by abusive you mean "you haven't changed in 12 years"? Please
explain what is abusive about that.



I think anyone can go back to the archives and look at your
behavior, where you post continual personal attacks against
anyone who disagrees with you, lying though your teeth when it
suits you. As far as I'm concerned, you have no credibility.



Looks sort of like pot-kettle-black there, Bill.



Nope. I only told them off after repeated abuse that continued for
over a month (or was it several months.) Eventually, I simply got
fed up with these bozos. And they were the only ones lying, which
they did repeatedly.


You seem very prone to accusing others that they are lying, Bill, as
well as insisting you are right on all topics.

Thanks, and it is becoming ever more clear that no one should post here
using their real name. The fact is that the group was losing its usefulness
because of the high noise to signal ratio. But then with the advent of Roger
Bratton followed most shockingly by Jobst Brandt who until this time I
considered to be one of the high points of the groups (save a certainly
pig-headishness which I assigned to aging engineerism) I suppose that there
is no longer any point in using the newsgroups since they seem to be
inhabited by lunatics who have memory spans of the last three days.

Apparently the only thing that Jobst can remember about me is that I
disagreed with his assessment of Campy Delta brakes. A hundred to one he
doesn't remember riding up Kings Mountain Rd with me. Or rather riding away
from me in his 46-19 or whatever rediculous gear he was pushing. (Psst -
Jobst - Delta brakes are still selling like hot cakes and often for a great
deal more than they cost new. Now I agreed that they were inferior designs
but perhaps you'll recall that argument as going somewhat along the lines
of - "They aren't the best but they aren't murderous as you claim.")

McNamara is a little easier to understand. He can't stand it if someone
criticizes bicycle helmets. After that it's pure hatred.

Now I admit that some people don't understand my humor. You have to put part
of that with growing up in the Oakland "ghetto" where when someone did good
you punched him.

For instance:

Ed Wagner
Apr 29 2001, 4:04 pm show options

We had the Corporate Challenge TT here in Tulsa today. ~ I did a personal
best for this course at 14:07 unofficially.

Tom Kunich
May 1 2001, 7:03 am show options
Good going fatso.


I'm sure that our good Doctor would understand that considering where he
grew up himself.

That started one of rbr's famous snits based on the fact that (apparently)
Ed was sensitive about his weight. (Did it occur to any of those psychotic
idiots that in a written format I had no idea whether Ed was fat, old or
perhaps young strong and handsome? And I suppose I should have expected that
the one that started the real snit about it was a fat guy.)

What remains curious is that people will read a 300 word posting with
scientific data, complete citations, graphs, numerations and then claim that
I'm insulting them. That DOES seem to fall into the catagory of "truth
hurts".

So is this what's to become of the internet news groups? Jobst printing a
map to my house? McNamara inventing new insults that he believes I ought to
have done? Or perhaps everyone enjoying and egging on an internet weirdo
that is just short (if short at all) from being in one of those Holloween
movies?

Read the thread again, Tom, I didn't say that you *had* posted under
alter egos. You are misinterpreting. In fact I said:

I actually don't notice anonymous postings from Tom Kunich.


So as you see, you seem to be letting paranoia run away with you. As
far as your personal life, it was quite obvious that back at the time
of your divorce- which as I recall you publicly mentioned- your posts
became even more bitter and angry than they had been. I hadn't read
any of your posts for several years, and now that I do I see that you
haven't gotten any better with time. I am sorry to see that.

Is this because it is all in your imagination or because you don't
agree with my postings and feel perfectly safe in not actually
posting something about the postings you don't agree with but easily
post lies here on a subject so broad that you feel that you can get

Whatever, man. What a rambling mishmash of illogic you manage to spin.

I don't care about your alter egos, nor do I care about your most
recent tiff with whomever.


But you are perfectly willing to imply that I somehow post under
different names despite the fact that I've been on the group with my

Good grief, more histrionics and paranoia.

I do think it over the top for people to post your personal
information to Usenet,

And you exaggerate dramatically. You could pump up a blimp the way
you inflate things.

but on the other hand your consistent antagonistic stance towards
everyone else earns you that sort of vituperation.


In short, if you want people to treat you better, treat them better
and stop acting like a net.kook. You can't credibly act like an
asshole and then claim to be a victim- no one will take it

LOL. Tom, you have never ever "put me in my place" in the 10-12 years
I have been around these newsgroups. I don't really want to call you
a paranoid nutjob, since I've never met you, but you certainly act
like one on Usenet. You have, on the other hand, threatened me with
bodily harm a few times in the past.

Such as:


snip

Good grief, Tom, get a grip- that weird snippet of postings just
further demonstrated your paranoid misinterpretations. It's too bad
that you seem to be so lacking in insight.

Or you could change your name to your ng handle g.

Let's see: You post under your real name, but object to another ng'er
posting your dwelling's location. Does that mean you're afraid of a
certain narrow niche of kooks who can read newsgroups but can't for
some reason do a "white pages" search to find out where you live, so
they can come and get you for something you "said" on a newsgroup?
Hmmm... And, didn't you just recently threaten to send a couple of guys
to "talk to" (i.e., threaten or in fact assault) Mr. Chang when he
yanked your chain? (more on your customaryl behavior below)

The fact is that the group was losing its usefulness


rhetorical assault noted

because of the high noise to signal ratio. But then with the advent of Roger
Bratton followed most shockingly by Jobst Brandt who until this time I
considered to be one of the high points of the groups (snip)


Time to move through "Denial", and on to the next of the Five Stages of
Grief, TK ("Anger/Resentment"). So post for Jobst like he did for you
already, and let's get into the New Year even-steven. OK?

I never had any cops come to the door, but did you in fact telephone
the APD on my behalf that time you got so very upset with me when I
said in here that men who describe themselves as "straight" go to
public parks to achieve sexual release with other men? A quickie
google:
(tiny: http://tinyurl.com/dy64b), From a New York Times article, "A Sex
Stop on the Way Home", describing long-standing activities in a certain
urban public park:

"You would not believe the guys who come here," said a 50-year-old
Queens man who repairs boilers and is a regular. "You have judges,
doctors, lawyers, firemen, cops, sanitation workers. You have guys
coming here with totally normal lives, married with good jobs."

Now don't explode prematurely, TK. I never said that *you* go to the
parks for casual encounters. I have no way of knowing if you're even
tempted, so no comments or accusations from this chair; just a minor
reality check. Or two. --D-y
