    Thanks for the heads up , Cyrille .
    I did write the word "and" twice , when I should have only written it once .
    I was going to edit it , but in future , when I need to write "and" in a sentence , I shall just miss it out to make up for using two last time

    It is not a cyber problem.

    The same parents that bring up louts that bully kids in the playground (and then squeal "my little boy wouldn't do that") pay no attention to what they do online either.

    However, it is fucking funny when Bob, who wrote such unnecessary and frankly pitiful comments about a member who passed away, suddenly goes all snowflake.

    Fuck off Bob.

    I was on the Internet before it hit the public domain too. And we did the same shit then that we do today, only without the pictures and video because the bandwidth was shit.

    29 words, during which you fucked up six times.

    So, an average of fewer than five words without fucking up while you criticised another poster's punctuation.

    I wasnt criticising his punctuation , I was making the point that his posts were hard to understand and the sentence structure and the random punctuation were the cause of the difficulties .
    The wrong punctuation caused his posts to be difficult to understand , as long as posts are understandable , then theres no need to comment on the content

    I saw the story and it is sad. But it was a bit vague about what the 'cyber-bullying' involved.

    It would be interesting to know what was said that would cause this girl to take her life.

    Of course we should try to prevent cyber-bullying but we should also be trying to teach kids to cope with online disagreements and get it into perspective in terms of how much actual harm it does.

    Sticks and stones etc.

    Exactly! You no doubt were taught the same as I was. There may be something very important in your point for the kids online.

The vast majority of people are ignorant scum and don't deserve a voice. If I could undo every job I have ever had and bring us back to the age of the telegram and the gestetner I would do it in a heartbeat. The world was a better and saner place when people had to make an effort to communicate, now that every fool with a phone can instantly spray his poison into what now passes for society our lives are corrupted by rape porn, bigots, nazis, and hateful ignorant inadequates who should have been strangled before birth. Everything good and decent about human culture has been shat on and corrupted beyond redemption by the worthless filth we have inadvertently given a voice to.

    I thought Al Gore invented the Internet.

    Anyway - seems like it is your fault. Shame on you.

    Harry Graber, age 11, is dying of a fatal disease which will eventually kill
    him. Before he dies, he would like to be in the "Guinness" Book of "Records"
    for receiving the most postcards in the mail. Please send him lots of
    postcards at the below address:

    Kibo, PO Box 722, Boston MA 02116-0722 (USA)

    Although he is very ill and only barely clinging to life, he gets thousands
    of postcards a day from people like you. He writes back, personally, to
    each and every single one. Amazingly, everyone who writes to Harry recieves
    a year of good luck afterwards! Mrs. Bertha Briggs of Poughkeepsie, NY
    recently wrote to Harry and then won the lottery the very next day--AND her
    dog was cured of cancer! Plus, if you write now, Harry will send you
    his miracle POSTCARD DIET which will allow you to lose 100 pounds a week!

    THIS IS NOT A SCAM!
    This service is FREE!
    Please enclose $14.95 for postage and handling.

    "If I had MY OWN NETWORK, it would be on ALL the TIME. It would be EDUCATIONAL,
    like COSMOS and NOVA, but not so DRY. It would best be seen on HIGH-definition
    TELEVISION. And every DAY we'd READ from the BOOK of CHER, because when you
    READ from the BOOK of CHER, it doesn't MATTER if you UNDERSTAND... it's the ACT
    that MATTERS. MY network would be METAphysical, paraNORMAL, and EXTRAORDINARILY
    ORDINARY. It would COMPEL you to RELAX and read `MADAME BOVARY', LOOK into the
    MOUTHS of VOLCANOES and LEARN to make RISOTTO... It would have a LINEAR BUILD
    and ARISTOTELIAN LINES... MY network would be both JARRING and AVANT-GARDE...
    with just a TOUCH of BRIAN DENNEHY. MY network would not promote WAR, WASTE,
    DOUBT or ANXIETY, and would pose the question... What was MICHELLE PFEIFFER

    WATCH MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 2000 ON THE COMEDY CHANNEL !!!
    ************************************************** *****************************
    MY TEN FAVORITE QUOTES: Broad-mindedness, n.: The result of flattening high-
    mindedness out. There is a certain impertinence in allowing oneself to be
    burned for an opinion. All the good ones are taken. "Microwave oven? Whaddya
    mean, it's a microwave oven? I've been watching Channel 4 on the thing for two
    weeks." Murphy was an optimist. Love means having to say you're sorry every
    five minutes. No matter how great your triumphs or how tragic your defeats --
    approximately one billion Chinese couldn't care less. Get forgiveness now --
    tomorrow you may no longer feel guilty. Commitment can be illustrated by a
    breakfast of ham and eggs. The chicken was involved, the pig was committed.
    You are here ------> * But you're not all there. Kirkland, Illinois, law
    forbids bees to fly over the village or through any of its streets. Love and
    scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. A clairvoyant is a person, commonly a
    woman, who has the power of seeing that which is invisible to her patron --
    namely, that he is a blockhead. A multi-day event on public television, used
    to raise money so you won't have to watch commercials. Try to get all of
    your posthumous medals in advance. The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the
    needs of an expanding bureaucracy. The intelligence of any discussion
    diminishes with the square of the number of participants. The hearing ear is
    always found close to the speaking tongue, a custom whereof the memory of man
    runneth not howsomever to the contrary, nohow. Good advice is something a
    man gives when he is too old to set a bad example. -- La Rouchefoucauld
    Professor Gorden Newell threw another shutout in last week's Chem. Eng. 130
    midterm. Once again no student received a single point on his exam. Newell
    has now tossed 5 shutouts this quarter. Newell's earned exam average has now
    dropped to a phenomenal 30%"Consequences, Schmonsequences, as long as I'm
    rich." -- "Ali Baba Bunny" [1957, Chuck Jones] Marriage is the only adventure
    open to the cowardly. -- Voltaire The First Rule of Program Optimization:
    Don't do it. The Second Rule of Program Optimization (for experts only!):
    Don't do it yet. -- Michael Jackson Goldenstern's Rules: (1) Always hire a
    rich attorney (2) Never buy from a rich salesman. The problem ... is that we
    have run out of dinosaurs to form oil with. Scientists working for the
    Department of Energy have tried to form oil using other animals; they've
    piled thousands of tons of sand and Middle Eastern countries on top of cows,
    raccoons, haddock, laboratory rats, etc., but so far all they have managed to
    do is run up an enormous bulldozer-rental bill and anger a lot of Middle
    Eastern persons. None of the animals turned into oil, although most of the
    laboratory rats developed cancer. -- Dave Barry, "Postpetroleum Guzzler" If
    a 6600 used paper tape instead of core memory, it would use up tape at about
    30 miles/second. -- Grishman, Assembly Language Programming Peanut Blossoms 4
    cups sugar 16 tbsp. milk 4 cups brown sugar 4 tsp. vanilla 4 cups
    shortening 14 cups flour 8 eggs 4 tsp. soda 4 cups peanut butter 4 tsp.
    salt Shape dough into balls. Roll in sugar and bake on ungreased cookie
    sheet at 375 F. for 10-12 minutes. Immediately top each cookie with a
    Hershey's kiss or star pressing down firmly to crack cookie. Makes a hell of
    a lot. Gyroscope, n.: A wheel or disk mounted to spin rapidly about an axis
    and also free to rotate about one or both of two axes perpendicular to each
    other and the axis of spin so that a rotation of one of the two mutually
    perpendicular axes results from application of torque to the other when the
    wheel is spinning and so that the entire apparatus offers considerable
    opposition depending on the angular momentum to any torque that would change
    the direction of the axis of spin. -- Webster's Seventh New Collegiate
    Dictionary. In fifteen minutes, everyone will be famous. -- Andy Warhol

    Subject: Re: your .sig

    Hi there.

    Thanks for your nifty .sig. I already got a copy from alt.fan.warlord,
    but with such a wonderful work of art, you can never have too many copies,
    can you? Well, of course you can! I mean, "Mona Lisa" is a damn good
    painting, but am I going to hang it in every room in my apartment? No!
    But I digress.

    Anyway, to make your .sig a bit more "user-friendly", here is an index for
    it. The numbers, of course, refer to line numbers.
    I'll let someone ELSE do a table of contents.

    Suggestions for index:
    1) Append it to the end of the .sig

    It was directed at those who know who kibo/biff were. That most definitely would not include you.

    Fair bit of press reports on Dolly's death in the OZ papers,now the NT cops are looking at the digital footprint for the offending posts to Dolly.
    My dog collar is on the usual mean girls groups that thrive in schools,but i bet they won't be named or expelled.
    The girls boarding school at Warwick QLD issued a PR spin press release saying all the students are looked after etc etc blaa blaa blaa.
    The school head was dodging any criticism of allowing any pupil(S) that they may be little bastards.
    A lot of older females seem to carry on with this mean girls bullshit,just like their school days.
    Most males seem to be able to tell some drop kick to piss off then it's the end of the story,but some boys need to smack the bully to stop the harassment,about the only way it seems to stop the pricks,a public shame job works wonders with them.

    ...agree: naming and shaming (with supporting evidence such as emails, etc) might give many bullies pause...

    Definitely.
    You make it sound like I should be ashamed of that lack of important knowledge.

    now why couldnt i have put it like that.

    Although you cannot take credit for writing such a bit post , because most of those words were mine .
    Also , we are not talking about writing perfect English , we are talking about writing posts that are understandable and which are not open to personal comprehension .
    fluke, everyone's total senses are open to personal comprehension. wot u read and hear being the worst of them,,, try chinese whispers for a start .

    nice one fluke.

    I'm not sure it's Aspergers. It's really starting to look like ENT syndrome. No offense to ENT.

    Yes. Perhaps he was the boy that swept the floors?
