Maybe so that she can see them from up close? :p

Ducks are fun, but will eat anything, sometimes unadvisably

I think those posts appeared because a regular to
AOLS posted in *politics and a person in that other
group cross posted a reply here for some crazy reason.

AOLS posted in *politics and a person in that other
group cross posted a reply here for some crazy reason.
More precisely, Dan C, who is a regular of this newsgroup, is also a
regular of soc.retirement, and the other person ─ who constantly
nymshifts ─ has had a vendetta going on with Dan C (and vice versa) for
at least 7 years already that I know of.

Now, Dan C is not exactly my favorite kind of person, but that other guy
is absolutely insane, and just so as to spite Dan C ─ as if he really
cares ─ this person is cross-posting stuff from soc.retirement to
alt.os.linux.slackware.

I've put them both in my killfile, although I regularly have to adjust
my filter on that other guy, given that he nymshifts all the time,
specifically so as to escape killfiles.

Your mileage may vary. ;)

Even though he might nameshift sometimes it is still possible to filter
him out in the kill file with a limited amount of work. The sad thing is
those other people which responds to his posts. Those replies makes
irrelevant threads visible even though the original post has been
filtered out.

No, of course not. I was talking of this "Jack Fate" or whatever he
calls himself these days. He used to go under the nick "Alias", and for
a while, he resided in alt.os.linux.mint and alt.os.linux.ubuntu, but he
gave up on GNU/Linux because he was too stupid to get his Thunderbird to
send emails as HTML, while he apparently does know how to do that in
Thunderbird on MS-Glassware. He also regularly changes the spelling of
his sender email address, which is fake anyway.

I believe he's an Acronymian who currently resides in Spain, and he's a
staunch US Democrat, while Dan C is a genuinely fanatic US Republican
whose political convictions sit somewhere to the right of Joseph
McCarthy, and who considers the whole of the European Union to be a
communist block, even though he most likely has no idea whatsoever what
communism really is.

Dan C thoroughly enjoys taunting this "Jack Fate"/"Alias" character, and
the latter is either too stupid to use a killfile or too addicted to his
little skirmishes with Dan C, so the only conceivable way in his petty
mind to retaliate against Dan C is to cross-post their party-political
drivel to alt.os.linux.slackware. Which doesn't hurt or offend Dan C
one bit, of course, but it's repulsively annoying to the rest of us.

It happens time and time and again. So I've added "X-ref:
soc.retirement" to my killfilter, in addition to the individual filters
I already have on the both of them.

If this were "The Lord Of The Rings", then Dan C would be something akin
to a vicious Uruk-hai, and "Jack Fate" would be something akin to Gollum
at the point in time where he's trying to sow discord between Samwise
and Frodo by throwing away their bread and dumping some crumbs on Sam,
suggesting that Sam ate the bread while Frodo was asleep.

As far as I'm concerned, they can enjoy their Preciousss at the bottom
of the Fiery Lakes of Mount Doom. ;)

That thought had crossed my mind but Martha didn't cross post her reply,
bless her heart, and although I've seen a few of those strange posts,
the subject matter mentioned didn't ring a bell. You refer to that
other guy who isn't there but I know from whence you speak..

The other day upon the stair, I saw a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today, I wish to hell he'd go away...
