I have to say this as it's bugging me, but I have just stopped posting to
the alt.pet.rodents as this "Judith Moon" was constantly starting wars
with people. It got to the stage where the topic was just plain insults
the threads were getting longer and totally off topic. I just hope she
doesn't have this effect on this newsgroup. I've nothing against her or
anything but I just think that her posts seem to cause a lot of ***within
the groups, I don't think she is a troll but that's the way she comes
So to save the newsgroup just ignore her. That's what I'm doing anyway!!!
