Sorry - no "admin" here. This is an open and unmoderated group.

It's difficult to do.  But if we can we should ban
Bill.  Look how much better the mail list & fido became
after he left!

How would you know that, Smokey? You just said
you don't subscribe to that mail list. Get caught in
another little fib there did you, bud?

Right. Just like I've been going by what people
said about you being investigated for selling
Amateur licenses. Are you starting to get it
now??

If Mackey can be banned, so can you.....and me...
and anyone else the "banner" so chooses.

Best to leave well enough alone and let the
Usenet work out its own problems.  Mackey
is a poor, harmless little wretch anyway, and
this is his arena for grabbing attention.

It's the only "feel good" he gets out of Life.

'Sniff.....

If someone's posts bother you, filter/killfile them.  

I elimated about 40% of the noise in this group by killing anything
with "cheek" or "mack?y" in the Subject: line.

This is an open and un-moderated NG.  Use a news reader with filters, a few
well chosen filters will eliminate much of the non-scanner related postings.

I'm struck by how often the "ban 'em" attitude gets expressed.  Sure,
there's a high percentage of noise here.  But as scanner enthusiasts we
enjoy our hobby by listening to all the "stuff" out there.  We are
listeners.  We balk at  rules that try to stifle our ability to listen.  Why
be so quick to squelch others?  You simply don't  listen to that which is
obnoxious, off-topic, whatever.

Just following the circular logic again -- he was going by what YOU said.
Who are "those people" you mention above?? The voices in your head??

And what's this about you NOT being a VE? You've bragged about BEING a VE
for so long...
