This is a piece of friendly advice: You're in a hole. Stop digging.

To be more specific: Katrina most probably did read the whole thread. To
presume otherwise will, under the circumstances, be perceived as plain
arrogance. And Katrina most probably does not need your guidance as to
how to use usenet. "a simple search would have indicated that."

Please just leave off.

i stand corrected. the initial suggestion was my effort to excuse
her misrepresentation, which i hoped was the result of ignorance
rather than dishonesty. if you assert that i am probably wrong and
she most likely did read the thread, i will accept your view and
conclude she is dishonest. thanks for letting me know.

as for my search comment, that too was to made to excuse another
factual misstatement on her part which i again thought was the
result of ignorance rather than dishonesty. thanks for correcting
that too.

So now you're calling Katrina a liar. You should have taken Peter's
advice to stop digging that hole you're in. Is it getting a little
warm as you near the center of the Earth?

IME, the only time Katrina tends to be mistaken in her advice is when
a poster has been less than complete in the description of the problem
he/she is experiencing.

did you read the preceeding text before you made that
misrepresentation.

let me clarify: i went out of my way not to call her a liar and
mr beattie attacked me for that communicating that she was, in
fact, a liar.

you can read that if your ead the text which immediately precedes
your misrepresentation of it.

i understand you are in a wee clique here but i doubt that
further misrepresentations will serve any purpose.

Salut/Hi james g. keegan jr.,

Sorry little man, you've managed to insult two of the most respected
members of the group.

You have just about guaranteed that you'll get no help here. What a SHAME
you can't learn to behave with a little more humilty and tact. Bye-bye. As
Ogden said, you have earned a one way trip into MY kill file, and probably
that of most of those who try to help others.



No, we wee on our own, nor are we in any sense a clique. However, there are
a number of people (myself not inlcuded) who spend hours every day trying
to help others. They're greatly respected by anyone (such as myself) who
actually tries to _leanr_ how to make Eudora work better without insulting
all and sundry. You might as well forget about writing for any more help.
Go back to Outlook Express which you richly deserve.

All the best, Ian

i hope many lurkers read your reply and then look into what you are
referring to.

they will see that one of your "members" (i never heard of a usenet
newsgroup with members before) either misread or misrepresented a
question i posted. when i corrected him, rather than apologize for
what was still included in the thread for all to see, he built a
strawman, suggesting i had done something which, in fact, i had
not. when i again corrected him, your other respected "member"
defended his actions by misrepresenting mine.

i suspect that these exchanges portrayed far more loudly than any
one person might that soem regular posters to this newsgroup and
dishonest, unethical and have so little self respect that they are
unable to admit to making a mistake.

of course as the thread(s) continued some of the more blatant
cowards has the common sense to delete the text that proved they
were misrepresenting before they misrepresented.

by the way, can you point me, and other readers, to the group's
membership requirements and standards?

you needn't reply if there are, in fact, no members and you just
made that up.

That's why the Usenet gods gave us loon filters.

good. as i age i am not as tolerant of characterless dweebs as i
was in earlier years. now, you'll not have the opportunity to
misrepresent my words further since, bu your own statement, you'll
not see them to misrepresent.

of course, not seeing them hasn't stopped you in the past.

oh he wasn;t being all that rude. it was more a display of arrogant
ignorance. he commented on that which he had not read. cut him some
slack. he needs to pretend.
