Oh please. Its called Spiking A Thread. See the subject line, know the
names, a simple D and its all gone..bye bye

Usenet aint dead.  As a socail medium it was simply the extension of
Fidonet and thus an extension of Local BBS's and thus only good when the
topics where fueled not by the flame but by like minded conversations,
infromation seeking, and that ilk.

To that end Usenet is still a place for Many folks. That and the Bin
groups of whcih little can be said other than ROXORING.

Now , lets take back the threads, slap the silly crack monkeys back in
thier cages and hope that the next time they get out and make a monkey
mess on the list it can be contained with proper subject line deletions
and "bad bad crack monkey" sterness.

Of course the other method is to start another list and feed them thier
crack junkdom there, thus leaving this list mostly crack monkey free.

Just some thought.
