I am a dickwad?
Look, I have already apoligized for my innocent mistake;
perhaps it would have been more appropriate to post totally unrelated xxx
material......(no pictures of course) or the latest way to riches.
I don't see any flame for those postings.
Again, I am sorry.
I feel I don't deserve all of this abuse for a first time mis-post. I will
say again I am sorry for the mispost.
All of this arguement certaintly isn't the reason why we are here.
Lets start over and get back to the reason we are here - to Help each other,
Now that we are back on track, I look forward to all of the helpful
responses that I will recieve.
Thanks in advance for everyones help.
No, no, no. GARY is a dickwad, with some kind of projected aversion to
net-nannies. I apologize to you for the misunderstanding.
To make matters worse, I can't offer any advice on your AWD noise. My 1500
Sierra has AWD, but it makes no noise.
and you're a net-nanny:
"The personality type attracted to the post/function/role of net nanny is
extremely well described in the professional literature. The description is
so good that even the untrained observer after only a first reading is able
to make a positive identification. It is better described than any other
aberrant personality type.
According to the literature they tend to be emotionally and sexually
immature. Personal relations are a nightmare for them, more so for the
object of their attention. They just cannot cope with other people
se of their "preferred sex". They are described as being highly
authoritarian and very seriously pedantic. Taking the highly authoritarian
aspect first, they defer to and are weak with the strong (others who have
some sort of control or hold on them). They tend to identify with an
individual more disturbed than themselves agreeing to the point of
grovelling with every thing the "leader"has to say. There is usually a
of homo-eroticism in this sort of relationship. They make and generally are
excellent arse lickers.
On the other hand they "kick the shit" ot of those they regard as weaker or
inferior to them. They are the sort of people who when asked to kill people
only ask how many and how often. Pedantry, in this type of personality,
is a consuming and all pervading passion. In newsgroups they tend to examine
messages for spelling, punctuation, grammar, query syntax, whether the
message is on topic, and general netetiquet before getting down to the
message contained in the posting. If they do get down to the message they
have nothing to contribute and bizarrely may even congratulate you for being
on topic etc. (There are many examples around in this group).
A word to the wise. They are very easily offended because of their basic
underlying pathology. Being rigid and unable to make concessions or to admit
they may be "mistaken" every disagreement is taken as a personal sligh
t. Coupled with their inability to correct misinformed notions and their
lack of adaptability they tend to have ill balanced aims way out of
proportion to any perceived slight. Responses to perceived slights are
er the top. War can break out over the miss-spelling of a word, a
miss-placed punctuation mark, or minor difference of opinion. Cause indeed
to have you banned from the Net. They fall out at the drop of comma! The
is that they are so full up with shit themselves that they do their best to
put everyone down so as to cover up their own inadaquacies.
Newsgroups, are ideal for them partly because face to face
relationships are not just a nightmare for them, but anyone within a
50 mile radius and partly because each group has a "charter"
which they can refer to. A weapon with which to keep us all in line.
A number of news groups are so badly infested that they either
become deserted or the domain of one small "clique", ruined for
everyone else. It is best to remember that inter-personal relations
of any kind always become a veritable nightmare for them."
