    Fsck off Kohlman netkop wanna-be.

    And by the way, does your boi Schestowitz need to post 590+ lines of
    UNRELATED crap every time he makes a post? Does every post that your boi
    makes need to include every single article ever written about Microsoft?

    Get your own house in order first before you start netkopping the rest of
    us.

    No. It was 593

    And even if it were "just" 489, you should not show your total incompetence
    and stupidity that clearly

    Yea....
    Somehow Roy Schestowitz's daily SPAM and worse [Homer]'s twisted stats have
    not seemed to bother the linux nuts.

    Pretty sad IMHO.
