Your whining continues obsessively Alan. Since you obviously

merits of kill-files and then implement one.

Hi, Rjack, please understand - I'm not whining, I'm trying to help

Perhaps you should drop your attempts to "help" me get my point across
as futile. Try and read a good book instead. Coffee goes well with a
good book.

You are simply insulting anyone who hasn't decided to kill-file my
posts. Are other readers of Usenet to dumb to make up their own minds?
Your condescension is no more effective than are your insults.

A kill-file will save you untold anguish, as the characters from

You may not have noticed, but nobody's engaging you any more in

Why can't you talk about something else, something others are

Screen out the noise. That's what kill-files are for.

Rjack :)
