Must have high standards of professional integrity and understanding of
Internet culture. You will be a dynamic and pro-active individual with a
passion for total quality customer service, a self-starter but able to work
in the fast-moving and polyvalent team environment that is Google groups.

As in not spamming newsgroups with advertisements?

It would appear so and after a quick scrub of the group I noticed
Malcolm is a frequent poster. It's been a long day and I just read the
"Google looking for Great Engineers" thread before this one, hence the
"hair trigger".

I suppose an *unplonk* is in order?

That depends on whether you want to read his articles in the future (if
you did indeed plonk the guy - so many plonkmsgs nowadays seem to mean
something quite different, i.e. "I think you're a plonker" rather than
"so long, sucker, my killfile just burped").

What you do owe him, however, is an apology.

Of course I do. After scrubbing the previous articles I see that he is
not only a frequent poster but also a quality poster.

That, indeed, was the intent of my reply although at first glance it
does not appear obvious. I had placed him in my killfile (or
thunderbird's equivalent of it) however after another glance at the
original article decided against it. My "I suppose an *unplonk* is in
order?" was meant as a rhetorical question to convey an indirect
apology. That being said, Malcolm, I apologize for erroneously judging
your post.

I was happy.
If it really fooled one or two people then that shows it was pitched about
right. Fool no-one and it's too crude, fool everyone and you might as well
place a real spam, fool one or two and you've got it.
Anyway, welcome to clc.

One could include a "smiley" at the end for the benefit
of the humor impaired. After all, there are professions
where the humor impaired do quite well, like undertaker
or government tax agent--so these folks are necessary. ;-)
