    Oh, I see. You must've been chuffed to have visited the city that claims to
    have invented the internet. Why didn't they spell it XXXXXXXX seeing as they
    spell beer as XXXX?

  3. I think that's a joke they play on "Southerners". They also have a
    product called XXXX Gold, wich one would assume is a premium version
    of XXXX, but it's actually just canned seawater.

  6. and what about all the other REAL Usenet servers on the web that are outside
    US jurisdiction, the ones that will politely say "**** you" when a US court
    asks them to remove something from the DISTRIBUTED DATABASE that is Usenet.
    Douggie is so clueless (for someone who apparently ran a Linux Shop and
    wrote security apps for it) that he thinks Google owns Usenet (I couldn't be
    bothered to find the little titbit that Douggie said to Steven Brooks,
    something along the lines of "what will you do when Google is forced by
    legislation to remove the lies and crap by posters like you" (insert more
    name calling as per Douggie))
    for someone that apparently ran a BBS he sure knows sweet FA about the way
    the net (and Usenet in particular) works.

    I feel he has no idea on much.
    As I mentioned earlier, is he a hit and run troll? He stated he
    invented usenet and hasn't been sighted since. Is this how he works,
    appear with an unkillfiled name Post a troll such as I invented
    usenet then hide for a few weeks?

    I had people in stitches at a wedding last night telling them about his
    'They are too gutless to confront me' comment then running to the police
    when someone said post your address then I will confront you.

  13. No, I've forgotten all my Morse, Horry. Use it or lose it, as they
    say. I've also forgotten plain English. WTF is "dash-and-run" supposed
    to mean? obviously I meant something-and-dash. I wonder what the
    something was? Early onset senility is such a tragedy.

    And designed the modern space shuttle, often if he slips up with a sock
    name he will tell you he was using the laptop on the shuttle. I think
    that one is 'Sarina Sarin'
