    A newsgroup has been specially set up for the purpose of allowing members
    of the many UK newsgroups suffering from an extremely abusive form of
    trolling, to discuss the problem, exchange information and hopefully
    achieve a permanent solution.

    You are invited to join the group providing you do so with a valid and
    traceable email address. Please note that a throw away address is not
    acceptable.

    The group has already made considerable progress since it was formed, but
    your ideas and help would be most welcome.

    Is this a joke?

    Are you not able to rise above it and/or make good use of your
    filters/killfiles? Or better yet, ignore it completely like most
    mature adults would?

    Perhaps you should get out more?

    Would everyone please note that this bozo crossposted this to a load of
    newsgroups and purposefully set the follow-up to demon.local only. The
    intent is to get people who don't check where they're posting to click
    on Reply and post dross there.

    I seem to recall a similar post (not sure whether it's by the same guy)
    about 6 months ago in this group. He was shot down then as well.

  11. And isn't one of the conditions of joining the group that you mustn't
    use a disposable address? Yet, the invitation to join comes from a
    hotmail address!

  12. The Lord alerted my mind to the presence of this EVIL article by Kevin G,
    and I thusly replied:
    Oh, the sheer hypocrisy.

    You seem to know a lot about how the original poster thinks. Funny that.

    I would prefer it if "Kevin G" and his band of merry fuckheads considered
