    As the demise of this newsgroup draws closer, it's time for me to close
    up the old killfile and release my remaining plonks. Enjoy, folks. I
    won't have to worry about you in the forums.

    I believe VanguardLH should be at the top of your list. He is the ultimate
    d**k.

    Yay, I made his list. Of course, if I replied, this means I always got
    the last word in any [sub]thread in which he participated. Haven't a
    clue what his intent may be. You don't bother telling someone that you
    killfiled them. You just do it and move on. It's actually quite
    childish to announce that you're going to plonk someone. At a party, do
    you actually go searching for someone in particular to tell them that
    you aren't going to listen to them anymore? That act itself gives more
    importance to the other party than to the one making the announcement.

    I see he is still stuck using Microsoft's NNTP server and hasn't
    bothered to move to another NNTP server where these newsgroups will
    continue to survive (but without all the noise posts from knee-jerk
    posting boobs with no initiative to research before asking while
    providing no details for anyone to work with to suggest solutions).

    PCButtsH0LE will be insulted that you didn't mention him (or her, as the
    case may be today).

    Mostly just to rant, I think. But if enough people reply with <plonk> then
    maybe the poster figures out that he's a twit. Especially if he's a MS MVP
    and should have some idea of how not to p*ss people off.

    No wonder he plonked you. <g>
    I also am assuming that these groups will be more useful once the
    sort of people who actually like web forums are gone.

    Well gosh my plonks list is 8 times the size of yours. I wonder what I have
    been missing.

    Despite their hugely annoying tendencies I have continued to read Twayne and
    VanguardLH because of their entertainment value. Then there's poor old
    Swifty who began by trying so hard and then contracted trollumonia. Earl
    Grey enjoyed a good period until he became disillusioned. PA Bear went from
    friendly uncle to grumpy old man.

    So, goodbye to all that. Welcome to the grim reality of forums. I guess
    there will be no way to revive the fragile gaiety of all these newsgroups.
    It was nice reading you all.
