Yah, and I'm 22 years old, (reason why <snip>
You come across as a lot more mature than 22, and you have good manners,
which seems to be in short supply these days.
What's more interesting to me is that you'd post to a thread that I
initiated in response to on patron being polite to another patron. I
mean, your whole schtick is that your so-called trolls are destroying
this newsgroup, I thought. And I also seem to recall you dismissing
any bodybuilding content, so why *your* interest, John? Rhetorical.
You are and ever shall be, unfortunately, a colossal jerk. Pointing
out what you claim to be interesting, but what is simply an excuse for
you to be what you repeatedly seem to complain about.

You have posted sporadically here for a few years.
However, it appears that only now are you satisfied with the level of
discourse in this newsgroup.
Were you directing that at yourself, John?

You have no idea how scary that is.
Your behavior, JMW, is not scary but rather amusing. Thanks for the
I think you have to have a little sympathy with how John feels these
days. There was a time when he was regarded (mostly by himself) as the
most important person in MFW.
He had the power, with the assistance of a few 'toadies', to decide
who could and could not post here, and even vied with other "old
regulars" as to who was the record holder for the most prolific
posting to MFW - who in fact was Lyle "Masturbating" McDonald.
Few would oppose John Williams, who hated with a passion the practice
of anonymity, but which he sought with alacrity when his 'powers' were
on the wane and people began to fight back, when he quickly hid away
behind his initials JMW.
To stand up to John Williams would bring down upon any such
unfortunate individual, an enormous barrage of collective bullying,
followed by the most scurrilous cyber-stalking, which happened to be
Williams' obsessive hobby, particularly if his targets were
unfortunate enough to have any degree of even minor prominence
displayed elsewhere on the Internet.
In addition, and in order to exaggerate his self-importance, he would
proclaim in the most ponderous way possible, in pseudo
scientific/medical 'terms', the neural pathways and other detailed
biological participation of all bodily matter involved, when the
subject might simply be curiosity about the correct form for an arm
curl. He would never use one word when twenty would hopefully bump up
his imagined reputation as some sort of fount of all knowledge with a
formidable intellect. He was a legend in his own mind!
So now he has to take a back seat and there is nowhere else for him to
go. He would be dismissed without ceremony should he venture to a
moderated forum, and if he tried to start his woeful tactics in
another Usenet group, he knows his many enemies would seek him out -
with the now inevitable results.
So spare a charitable thought for this unhappy chap, whose unfortunate
and frustrating station in life spurred him on to seek prominence in a
very combative cyber arena, where his low level public service
employment allowed him more than ample time to indulge himself to his
own entire satisfaction.
His early successes obviously went to his head, but he didn't have the
wisdom to know when to ease off. It was inevitable that he would
eventually meet his match, which of course he did - and the rest as
they say (whoever "they" are) is history.
How the mighty are fallen!!
I've had my workout and lunch, so Monday is fine again! ;o)
