Okay, I'm a dumb-ass ... got baited and responded to the "request for 
moderation" thing. Should never have responsed at all, my unreserved 
apologies for helping this continue far longer than it should have. Bill 
Baxter was right

No more posts from me on this topic

Maybe a book recommendation could come off passive aggressive,
but "Leadership and Self Deception" by the Arbinger Institute is a good
read. It's helped me not to be reductionistic about people's motives and to
be wary of justifying myself.

Message of the book is sort of summed up by:
"We deceive ourselves in subtle ways into thinking that we're doing the
right thing for the right reason"
whether this be baiting people or taking the bait.

Crap, I sound religious, but it has been a helpful addition to my view of
the world.

I know what you mean. I've resisted posting some "rules of netiquette" here because I don't feel I have any justifiable moral high ground on such things. My advice is always the same: don't reply to a post you feel is offensive. Doing so just makes things worse. All of us also sometimes hit the "send" key in haste and immediately regret it. If anyone wants me to remove any of their own posts, I'll do so if they email me newsgroup and message number. It'll go away from the Digital Mars servers, but I can't control any copies that might have proliferated. Many people have regretted posting something inflammatory, and have asked me to remove those posts. I am happy to comply. This offer also extends to fake postings. If you're being impersonated by someone else, send me newsgroup/message numbers, and I'll yank them.

yep. but a vicious parrot has moral high ground over our resident kretinoid. look at wut hes said 2 u... how did he make u feel. kretinis biggest contribution to d was to leave u alone.

I think I'd rather just have the by-line edited to "Forger" or something like that, particularly if the real poster could be identified.

I refuse to edit posts on general principles, it's a fundamental issue of trust. Either they stay or they go, in totality.

u could add a header like x-forged. the prb is u cant automate detection of forgery bc almost every1 has dynamic ip.

A very simple quasi-password scheme (I think suggested by downs and how some anonymous message boards work), is to have all users place a "password" of sorts after their username/email address. So I might have something like "Jarrett Billingsley #foobarbaz". When the server gets the post, it converts the #password into a !hash, so it'd be like "Jarrett Billingsley !03acfeeb". The chances of two passwords hashing to the same value are obviously nonzero but slim nonetheless. It's still definitely defeatable by something like a rainbow table but it'd keep all but the most determined forgery artists at bay. Whether or not something like this is possible in an NNTP server is beyond me. :S

Ummm err jeez thats a hard one . Use that ........but dont let the insiders at the server. Thats where some of them have come from I reckon. I just offer up that a free board is a very necessary thing in this age of electronic censorship and Government policing activity. If you donīt stand behind free speech you will lose it Some people swear some donīt. some drink some donīt some shoot some dont , same with smoking , poison sprays , genetic modification and so on Whatever your pleasure you will be in the minority. EG if you play Tennis and people want to ban it you will find the majority will not be participants so it does not bother them if a few paranoids donīt get to play tennis. - Not well put but you get my drift?

Free speech is certainly important, but being nasty, immature, and bigoted has never been in vogue. I think you're confusing the two.
