Well, that didn't work the first 5 or 6 time Karl was directed
there, so what makes you think it will work this time?

It may be unfair, but so is deliberately ignoring the conventions of
the list. Or do you feel that anyone on the list should be able to
ignore the accepted rules of behavior of the list? It is posts like
your that encourage Karl to ignore the accepted rules of conduct.

This does nothing to alleviate the problem of incorrect information
being given to new users, and added to the list archives. But if you
are willing to accept the responsibility of checking Karl's posts,
and adding warnings or corrections, then the rest of us can safely
ignore all his posts. Do you accept the job?

That is easy - post like your that encourage Karl to continue his
anti-social behavior.


  Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
