Sorry, Remo. You fail.

Over 400 groups with "test" in their names on a typical newsfeed, and
you managed to crosspost into 5 groups that don't even have a "t", let
along "test" in their names.

Say... Aren't you the guy who tried making an advertisement for a
romance novel appear to be an on-topic post by saying something insipid
that could have been on-topic if it were in the right context? You
failed then, too.

Usenet was not invented for you to make these posts any more than the
telephone poles was invented to hold your "Loose 40 Pounds, Ask Me
How..." signs.

Sorry. I don't usually respond to trolls like RR, but I'm just in that
kind of mood today.

Funny isn't it how you can ignore something for ages and ages then
suddenly can't NOT anymore :~))

It's a bit the same with pruning..............you think :
"That plant/shrub/tree is a bit out of control but I can ignore
it....."
Then suddenly one morning you think "NO, I MUST prune it now !"

A troll only posts to annoy/argue and in general be a pain in the bum. You
should not respond to as troll because he/she is fed by your replies, but,
often the temptation is to great to resist

Someone here will tell you the technicalities but that it in "simple"

Now, PMFBS?

A troll is someone who posts something outrageous just to watch people
get riled-up. Sometimes a troll will do a little flaming (attacking the
person, not the ideas) just to watch everyone else start to get
personality issues and the real issue confused to the point that threads
will go down several layers with no real substance. Trolls cast a wide
net, and try to upset as many people as possible.

"Don't feed the trolls," essentially means you should ignore the troll,
and not get caught in his net.

The origin is the trolling that a fisherman does. Essentially we're
talking about casting a wide net, and seeing what we can catch.

Of course it's also fun to picture the troll as a evil little elf.

Not nearly as boring as seeing continued top posting.
If you think it boring to remind others of good manners, then so be it.

I bet you did not plonk me.
