    Not at all. It obviously bother you else why would you be here?

    That may be true but this is a linux group and you are one of
    the whiners here so I wouldn't criticize if I were you.

    Many windows boxes lock up every hour, on startup if nothing else whilst
    windows goes off and has a ponder with no feedback to the user. What's

    You wish ... Wintroll.

    If anything, after 7 years away from COLA, I see the Wintrolls (like you)
    are looking more like a disheveled group of zombies and dead set losers
    than ever before.

    If Roy is a part of the cause, he is to be congratulated.

    Well maybe you can explain this:

    Remember all the people that used to post here in COLA?
    All the different Linux advocates?

    If you check Google you will see that many of them disappeared shortly
    after Roy started his SPAM-O-Matic machine.

    Why is that?

    And why very little if any new Linux advocate blood in this group?

    Why is that?

    If Roy is doing such a great job this group should be flooded with Linux
    advocates.

    It's not.

    You know why?

    Take a look at COLA via Google groups and it looks just like a SPAM trap.
    Like one of those groups infested with Viagra advertisements.

    IOW, hundreds of posts from the same person with few if any replies.

    People aren't interested in that kind of crap.

    They can get news all over the net and they don't need Schestowitz to twist
    it and post his version here.

    I'll leave you with one thought, all the Windows users from the past are
    still here.

    It's the Linux advocates from the past that are long gone, and you can take
    that to the bank!

    Yeah, right. This troll posted those alleged problems several
    weeks prior in COLA, but not in its thread, then hammers the
    responders for not knowing.

    The use of the derogatory term "bozos" is not intended to
    encourage responses, but rather discourage them. This is
    evidence of:

    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.

    Well sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not in COLA. I'm reading
    these posts in the Ubuntu group. The only reason they are going
    to COLA is because whomever started the thread had it crossposted
    there...and to Vista groups, which I removed because this has
    nothing to do with Vista.

    I'm NOT a Linux pusher, I still use Windows most of the time
    since I'd just installed Linux a few weeks ago, maybe a month+
    ago, and still checking out apps and learning Linux. There are
    things I like and things I don't like.

    Believe what you want to believe. It's painfully obvious that you
    are completely anti-Linux, just like some are completely anti-MS,
    and have such strong preconceived beliefs that it doesn't really
    matter what anyone says about any particular Linux item,
    everyone's a liar, and nothing works out-of-the-box.

    > Both Poaster and HPT are useless. And boring as well.


    Says this troll. We don't tolerate his posting nonsense, which
    makes us useless and boring to it.

    It means we are the next best thing to sliced bread. :-)

    Oh, and I saw the insulting Dutch wannabee nymshifter down under
    troll post your worksite weblink. It is interesting how they set
    up "rules" for forum posters, as an only indicator to disrupt any
    beneficial Linux posting in COLA. Yet they feel a superior sense
    of exemption.

    Indeed, it's because we don't fall for their drivel.
    Funny, isn't it. If we're useless & boring, why do the twin wintrolls
    Quack & Flatfish even bother to read us? Why don't they ignore/kf us?
    Because like *all* trolls, they *have* to know what's being said about
    them!

    As for boring & useless, Quack & Flatfish show themselves to be totally
    incompetent when it comes to things Linux.

    Quack "whine, whine, whine, moan, moan, moan..." etc.

    Flatfish "This won't work, that won't work" blah, blah, blah...

    What a pair of dummies.

    The Dutch Douche is quite a piece of work. I think he wants to be another
    Kadaitcha Man. The only problems with that are that KMan is pretty funny at

    No.
    I hammered you idiots for not READING.
    It's all there for the taking.

    And you are bozos...

    Subject: 4.1 Drivel

    Posts without interesting content are simple to produce.
    Cascades have a long history on usenet, usually containing
    wordplays round a specific theme. The Trolls version is a
    cascade of drivel. two persons working online to the same
    newsserver can throw a thread between themselves and create
    very large numbers of posts. One person can throw a thread
    between two or more sockpuppets.

    Agreed. I haven't had the problems with my Linux boxes, either.
    My Amptron PM-9900 mobo with AMD 450 MHz CPU finally crapped
    out (hardware failure), but I had a spare Intel Pentium Slot-1
    mobo with 333 MHz CPU. Moved the Trident 4D-Wave-DX sound card,
    modem, AGP card, CD-Writer and hard disk to it. Did hardware
    detection and it was up and running fine on SuSE 6.4. No
    reinstallation required.

    My 1.7 GHz Intel Celeron mobo had an intermittent problem with
    one of the USB slots. Linux verified the hardware problem (dual
    boot). Linux has better hardware checking. It flagged it right
    away. I no longer use that port and things are fine with Ubuntu.

    I built a 400 MHz Intel Celeron system for a fairly young widow.
    It worked fine including the Winmodem.

    Daughter's ASUS EeePC has been working fine, not a crash yet and
    it has been at least 4 months. She uses it daily.

    2.9 GHz Intel system hasn't crashed over the past two and a half
    years of usage. Ubuntu Gutsy works fine.

    Anyway, a few examples ....

    Unlike you - a troll with a chip on your shoulder who manually creates so
    much ****e aka anti-Roy spam that no-one, that's right, NO-ONE wants to
    read, that you've single-handedly reduced the appeal and effectiveness of
    a newsgroup.

    Please, go create another group and move to it. If you really have a
    voice someone wants to listen to, you'll get them moving over to it.

    7.6 Trespasser Disinformation Tactics

    25. Attack new posters who favor Linux
    Some of these Linux Advocates may be new to Linux and COLA. Show no
    mercy. Pounce upon their innocence with every single one of these
    tactics. If you are lucky you might turn them to your side, at the
    very least you may be able to drive them out of COLA and neutralize
    them as a threat.

    Well sorry to dissapoint you, but I'm not in COLA. I'm reading these
    posts in the Ubuntu group. The only reason they are going to COLA is
    because whomever started the thread had it crossposted there...and to
    Vista groups, which I removed because this has nothing to do with Vista.

    I'm NOT a Linux pusher, I still use Windows most of the time since I'd
    just installed Linux a few weeks ago, maybe a month+ ago, and still
    checking out apps and learning Linux. There are things I like and things
    I don't like.

    Believe what you want to believe. It's painfully obvious that you are
    completely anti-Linux, just like some are completely anti-MS, and have
    such strong preconceived beliefs that it doesn't really matter what
    anyone says about any particular Linux item, everyone's a liar, and
    nothing works out-of-the-box.

    Nope. **** has /some/ value. It can serve as fertilizer.

    That nymshifter is unfit even for that.
