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