    So who is paying this Taliban wannabe Roy Schestowitz to flood the group
    with his own version of raw sewerage?

    392/7 = 56 articles per day.
    1893/7 = 270 Kbytes per day.

    That's one hell of a lot of very long articles considering this isn't a
    binaries group, like a picture or mp3 group.

    So who is paying this SOB Roy Schestowitz?
    It sure seems like a full time job to be able to post that many, and not
    only many but very large sized articles each week.

    Who has been asking you to post *your* crap?

    Roy has been asked by the linux users of this group to keep psting his
    stuff

    And you, as an extremely stupid wintendo luser, have absolutely no say in
    these things.

    Yea sure.
    Don't let facts like the number of "I don't read what Schestowitz posts"
    messages or the fact that his reply rate is dismal get in your way.
    Most people have his garbage kill filed and rightfully so.
    He is an extremist nutcase that does the FSF no good at all.
    Why not express the truth which is that most people want Roy Schestowitz to
    go away because he is a huge blight on the FSF and Linux.

    Roy Schestowitz has probably caused more damage to Linux and free software
    in general than anything that Microsoft has done over the years except for
    maybe Windows 7 which is going to totally, and completely crush desktop
    Linux to the point where it will never recover.
    Google Roy Schestowitz and see for yourself. Never has their been a person
    who is the very definition of the word loser. He is like a walking talking
    poster child for 1000 reasons not to use Linux.
    And if you don't think the SOB Schestowitz is being paid to blog then you
    are a fool.
    Nobody but a totally dysfunctional retard would sit in front of a computer
    24x7 posting "why Linux is great" conspiracy messages unless they were being
    paid to do it.
    And don't kid yourself, Roy Schestowitz is being paid.
    Unless he is a retard of course, which might be the case.

    Unbelievable that you even wasted your time and energy to read that garbage.

    No idea what's up, but the Windroids are overactive this weekend, also
    cross posting and nymshifting like hell.

    Is it the new Alpha 2 release of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, which seems to be
    more stable than Vista and Windows 7, or what?

    Cheers!

    Oh, it is just the news that their beloved IE has proven once again to be
    a malware mothership
    Garbage of the worst sort. Coming from MS, naturally
    ..
    That has sent them again into a posting frenzy

    And they don't even realize how incredibly stupid they look

    What, wasn't IE8 the most secure browser ever then?

    > Garbage of the worst sort. Coming from MS, naturally


    Indeed it certainly is a piece of junk and it's user hostile.

    If you want to play a Flash video, you have to manually confirm that you
    want to play that video - each time -.

    So if you are browsing youtobe for example, you will have to confirm
    every single time, that you want to play a video.

    > That has sent them again into a posting frenzy


    Ah yeah, the truth hurts.

    > And they don't even realize how incredibly stupid they look


    Well Windows 8 will be the most secure Operating System ever, so will
    MSIE 9 be!

    We have learned from the past that Microsoft always keeps their
    promises... and I am the Princess of Wales :)

    Would you like to post the message ID of ONE?
