#1 STOP YELLING AT EVERYBODY!
#2 Please, don't crosspost to the world like this!
#3 There's nothing more stupid that posting something to the world
(several times over, in most cases) and expecting no-one to read it!
#4 If you want to find somebody, try the following:
Search thourgh the news files for the person's name.
On this system:
/usr/lib/news/spool/... (ie: alt/good/news)
use grep to search through the files for the name you want
(ask someone there for help -- try the Bored Operator From Hell (tm)
For all those who are sick of this cr*p, I suggest:
Whenever you see such a god-awful crosspost, reply via email
with the offending text plus a brief, polite comment on the
offensiveness of the crosspost.
I've been doing this for a while, if a million other folks
will join me, I'm *sure* we will have no problem convincing
to correct their habits.
