I suspect this is "going Irene" in diversionary mode.

Newbies in here are treated as well if not better than other posters simply
because they *are* new users. We were *all* new users at one time. Now, if
a new user comes into the group and is blaming everything and their acne on
their system (or more specifically Dell)- that might be another matter
entirely. How the hell would one expect this group to be anything but
biased towards Dell systems in most all cases?

I don't believe this latest excuse. Further, I find it sad that someone so
independently wealthy (according to the source, though it matters not for
the content of the posts in this group) would bother spending time here at
all.

I'm not independently wealthy, and I'm not close - nor do I expect to be
ever. But if I ever hit the lottery, please expect me to disappear for an
extended period of time if not altogether. I'd hope I could find something
positive to do with myself to some greater degree with those improved
options.

I'm here because I enjoy working with systems, helping others where I can
while learning a great deal at the same time.

I empathize with folks who have PC problems and who take some degree of
responsibility for their plight. I don't have time for perpetual whiners
and the seemingly eternally blameless.

I really enjoy this group and especially the regulars who bring to the table
what knowledge they have to offer with a good attitude.

Nobody denies there is the odd stupid fool, or worse, posting in
this n.g. that would do such a thing. But in taking retribution
in your fashion against everyone in the news group, most of whom
would have, and some probably did, treat your granddaughter
decently, you have become just as much a nasty stupid fool as the
nasty stupid fools you are exacting revenge on by punishing an
entire newsgroup.

>> So, blame them, not me.I think you a very aware of who they are.

I blame them for being stupid fools, and probably didn't see
their treatment of your granddaughter, having killfiled them as
soon as they revealed themselves as being stupid fools.

Similarly, I blame you for being a stupid fool, and have treated
you just as I have those others. I am an equal opportunity
stupid fool killfiler.

Yes. After we got back from Europe, my husband was able to fix the problem
with her computer. It was very basic and very simple, but that doesn't
excuse the comments that were given to her post.
If people would just think before they post comments such as she received,
or like others that appear in this and other groups. Not everyone is a
computer genius and not everyone is able to distinguish between problems
that they inadvertently cause and those caused by a piece of hardware or
software.
Wouldn't a simple explanation be better than ridicule, insults, and fowl
language.
The example that I just posted to AlanP was a post that appeared last fall
in another computer group.
That is what happens when any sort vile of comments are tolerated.

Going Irene is that something similar to "going postal", is that one
being replaced?

I wouldn't do that to my letter carrier. "He's good people".

"Going medieval", "going technical" - yeah, the terms are hot swappable.
It's just that the aforementioned doesn't do much but b!tch, whine,
complain, blame, assign, label, misrepresent topics as opposed to becoming
violently profane. Sort of like a comedian with the build up and no punch
line.

Further, it's pretty clear that she's now achieved a remarkably high level
of irrelevancy in a matter of hours.

A spectacular flame-out into a smoldering hole, if you will.

Right, I bump into folks like this all over Usenet, e.g., the 4'11",
350lb guy who has a stable of Ferraris and dates only supermodels, etc.
I'm sure we've all encountered them.

If Irene does a "lot of travel", she must be using warp drive based on
her level of posts on this NG.

adults usually don't need to be told to watch their language where children
are present which makes me wonder how old you are. if you are an adult, do
you walk into your friends house and use obscene language when there are
children within earshot?

either way, if you're not an adult, grow up. if you are an adult, clean up
your act. didn't your parents teach you any of this? or did you sleep
through those discussions?

If I'm in someone's house, I respect the rules of the house.

Usenet, however, allows total freedom of speech.

Until Usenet becomes "your house," the only way to keep children
from hearing/reading obscenities (Some people feel the word "damn"
is an obscenity!) on Usenet is to keep them *off* Usenet.

but the usenet *is* in my home. it is in a lot of peoples homes.
why can't you treat the place like you treat your other friends homes.

so it's too much to ask of "adults" that they not use obscene language in
posts?
keep that bar nice and low so nobody has to worry about civility.
so given your premise, the usenet will forever remain a sewer because some
purported "adults" can't act like adults and control their langauage. last
time i checked obscenities were a necessity for communication.

Strange, how "total freedom of speech" is, according to the pro Dell
members of this group, permitted for some and not for others. Insults,
swearing, name calling when posted by the pro Dell folks is O.K. But anti
Dell posts and most complaints about Dell are not acceptable. Nor are
complaints about those who post foul language. You, AlanP, Sparky, and
others have "total freedom of speech", but I don't. Nor do numerous others
that your group decides can't have the same rights as you and the rest of
the "Dellbots".
That's a "total freedom of speech" that I have not previously encountered.

On the contrary, I welcome anti-Dell posts, if they are warranted. But in
all the years I've been reading this group I have yet to come across an
anti-Dell thread that I can support. All the anti-Dell threads I've read so
far are by crusaders on self-appointed missions, or the bigoted, the rude
and the clueless, all of who would have the same trouble with any other
brand of computer, or toaster or cellphone or vacuum cleaner...

As for free speech, that's fine with me. I have a killfile for posters I
can't abide. All the posters who enter my killfile eventually give up and
leave us alone. But not you. You just keep coming back for more. It doesn't
seem to matter to you that nobody gives a damn about your 'mission'. Maybe
your real mission is to get insults rained on you and become a
laughingstock. You have succeeded!

oh yeah... you're the model of an open minded person.
the people posting dell problems are "crusaders on self-appointed missions",
"bigoted", "rude", "clueless".
you've not seen one anti dell post you could support?

one might reasonably conclude that you are a dell bigot, that is rude to
anti dell posters and is clueless to the very real problems people have with
dell. in short you are on a crusade of your own to summarily dismiss others
with labels while continuing your self-appointed mission of blindly blowing
the dell horn.

i guess the size your killfile illustrates just how close minded you really
are. so how big is it mr. "i welcome anti-Dell posts"?
