I cannot even make sense of this gibberish.

Telling us we should go post in talk.politics.misc or alt.fan.rush.limbaugh is
certain telling us how we should conduct ourselves in this forum. And I note
in another thread that you reguarly talk down to people, and tell them what to
do -- what software to run, how to configure it, and more. When they raise
an objection -- "voicing their opinion" -- then you subject them to insults.
In short, your behavior on alt.folklore.computers has been as obnoxious as
your signature, and you have contributed almost nothing in the way of
computer folklore.

I don't care if you've been on Usenet for forty years -- if you act like a
newbie, then you are a newbie. You've ignored the standards and norms
of this community and insulted it's long-time participants. That's what
a newbie does. You've already earned a placed in several kill files.
I think a shunning is in order. Ideally, no one should read or reply to any of
your posts. I'm sure that you're going to insult me in your reply, just as you
have with others. I won't be reading it, nor replying to anything you write
in the future.

Politics is an integral, unavoidable component of all human interactions.
The question isn't one of politics versus no politics, but of good politics
versus poor politics. Regrettably, there many poor politicians these days,
which certainly sours people's opinion on politics. I also note that the
vociferous objectors to politics never announce that they are going to run for
public office in order to do a better job. Where do people think politicians
come from? They are citizens who step up and say, "I'm going to take that job."
In any event, if you want better politics, you should get involved on some
level.

cabs, tending bar, and cutting hair."
