Newsgroup Reviews including alt.politics.bush

301 files from the third battle of cyberspace. (part two)

60 Newsgroup postings were deleted, after 15 hours.
There were claims of major hacker attack,
which turned to abashed embarassment.

It turned out that the NSP owner,
had sent out a world-wide posting.
It invited all users, who had forgotten their passwords,
to just leave it blank. Then a new confirmation password
would be sent. Cinderela was invited to the ball.

Thank you,

Big Bertha Thing format

Anybody heard of the fly-paper trap?
Where all the flies are collected, in an unsightly mess,
hanging from the kitchen ceiling.
The expensive version is the lizard with a long tongue,
that retracts after each catch.

Take an uncensored version of a usenet newsgroup,
show the subject line of each thread header,
with the total number of postings and the net
number of postings after extracts.
Put the total number of extracts, in the first line,
at the top of the list of postings.
Anyone wishing to search the extracts clicks on it
and finds each person extracted with 2 lines each.
The first line shows the number of thread headers
and the second the number of replies.
Further clicks go down to posting level.

Extract everyone with more than 1000 postings
on any single newsgroup, from all newsgroups.

Examples of the fly-paper trap can be found on:-

I keep hearing people disavowing membership of the group.
All group members, except those in First Aid Tent, were
volunteers who have not resigned.
Everyone, including First Aid Tent members, have never
dissented to group postings till now.
The only unexplained event is membership of the First Aid Tent.

Guilty as charged. I should not have done any of the following;-
1. defended you in the mods conf.
2. given you an invitation, when the dogs were at the door.
3. offered a refuge for the explosion survivors.
4. ticked off the mods.
5. put your name up in lights on OUSA Astronomy and Astronomy
and Space.
6. Put back the release of my software package, just because
of the troubles.

Personally I would take me out and shoot me, there is no punishment
too bad for any mod, who gets even one complaint. We should be
above reproach, like Caesers' wife.

I will of course remove the words 'Extract to explain the project
to Philip Sims' from all further postings.

Please accept my appologies for all the bad things I did before
your elevation to mod. I only pick on little people.

Thank you,
Tony Lance
