    HP LaserJet P1006 hardware does not support scanner or facsimile
    capability. Nor does it come with a network card for stand alone
    capability.

    It#s not that it doesnt support anything. It simply has not got
    them. Its a cheap laser printer. Nothing more.

    Rather sad that this troll cannot respect forum poster, resorting
    to insults.

    This is an example of:

    http://www.hyphenologist.co.uk/killf..._troll_faq.htm

    Subject: 3.4 The nasty Troll

    If anyone does anything which will interfere with the troll's
    ability to cause mayhem, they can become very nasty, posting from
    obviously incorrect variations of the name etc. insults, call
    them netcops, netnannies, homosexuals.
    also

    [3.] Put your opponent off guard by insulting him. The liberal
    use of profanity and vulgarisms can be very effective,
    particularly when used against you more dignified opponents. Your

    and

    40. Avoid providing any help. Because you claim to be
    such an expert so often, you may from time to time be asked for
    assistance. Don't provide it, you would only destroy the image
    you have lied so long to create. Treat an honest request based
    on a real situation as an argument: Restate the request for
    assistance in a real situation as a hypothetical situation that
    you can argue against.

    hasnt got those features? Where?

    Of course. He's pompous, overbearing, and arrogant, but his attitude is
    not backed up by any real show of knowledge. What does he have left in
    his ammo pack? Vitriol.

    He doesn't seem to understand that the few sensible things he says are
    basically negated by his overwhelmingly acidic spewage.

    I mean, look at the guy, who he hangs out with, to whom he curries
    favor: the biggest, most assholey trolls in the group.

    And he wonders why he has no credibility here, why everyone insults him
    and calls him names, why few believe he has any legitimate knowledge or
    interest in Linux.

    The preponderance of his posting is negative /against/ Linux. The
    preponderance of his posting is /unprovoked/ insult. Here, he acts like
    a real piece of ****.

    And yet, he's decent and civil enough elsewhere (other ng's).

    And yet I was correct about the printer and can read a matrix and you

    CBFalconer is one of the most useless posters in the history of
    usenet. All he does is post rebukes on HOW people post. Dont believe me?
    Then Google him up. I slapped him for bullying other posters with his
    continual net nannying. He was also insulting "Winders" users (as he
    would say) while (wait for it...) posting using Windows. Yes. He really
    is THAT ignorant.

    The fact that Willy quotes him should be enough for anyone to see what
    an arse Willy is and how he can not be trusted.

    Falconers preoccupation with headers suggest a relationship with
    Willy. Creepy.

    I believe he's widely reviled in the programming groups too.

    You need help with reading comprehension don't you?

    The driver IS INCLUDED.
    It just DOES NOT WORK..

    See the first line on the web page I posted?

    It says "DO NOT USE THE DRIVER FROM THE UBUNTU PACKAGE ETC...

    Also just because YOUR printer model works, means nothing.
    My Samsung works fine as well.

    Nice try at FUD yourself.

    I see the gang bang is in full steam again.

    I'll bet you feel foolish now that I have made an idiot of you.

    Next time try actually reading the post or the web page before you make an

    Read what HPT replied to my post.
    "The driver is included with the package".

    Yea that's nice, but it doesn't work.

    In fact the first line of the webpage I posted warns you NOT to use the
    included driver, because, duhhhh it doesn't work!

    Then of course he goes on to let us all know how his completely different
    printer works fine.

    What a tool!

    He's not known as COLA's thickest poaster for no reason. He keeps doing
    this to himself for some reason. Fortunately he has Willy and Liarmutt
    to come bowling in and drown out his errors in a flood of "me toos".

    Exactly, and they aren't even smart enough to read the posts they are "me
    too'ng" .

    As usual, Willy Poaster is last at the gang bang.

    Most people would want to be first I would guess.

    Not our Willy Poaster!

    Only in your mind.
    I wonder why that is.

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...rm=gang%20bang

    gang bang :

    1. When a street gang finds a random person on the streets and beats the
    ever living hell out of him. Usual ending with the removal of the victims
    shoes which are then strung from power lines.

    I can carry on a conversation with a sane person who is capable of reading.
    You are neither, and your paragraph below demonstrates both quite nicely.

    How many times do I need to explain to you that the hPLIP driver that comes
    with Ubuntu ( the same one on the HP website BTW) DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY
    WITH THAT PARTICULAR PRINTER amongst others in the list.

    How many times does this have to be explained to you?

    Are you that desnse?

    You keep blathering on about a printer that has nothing to do with the one
    I have.

    You don't read the web page, which clearly explains that the driver DOES
    NOT WORK.

    It's impossible to carry on a conversation with you.
    Totally impossible.

    No it's not said, it's the truth.
    My claims are backed up by facts, ie: the people who wrote the driver.
    Your claims are the rants of a loon.
