When will > you ever learn? WHEN, I ASK YOU, WHEN?!? Never I think. Let's start over. From The Five Books of Servo, Book 1: In the beginning of Infinity's creating of Servo, and the KPS - when the Usenet was astonishingly empty, with darkness on the surface of the fen, and the Infinite Presence hovered upon the surface of the Fanwidth - Infinity said, "let there be posts," and there were posts, and Infinity saw that the posts were good, and Infinity separated between the posts and the trolls. Infinity called the posts "good" and the trolls he called "better." And there was posting, and there was trolling, the first thread. Infinity said, "Let there be a newsgroup in the midst of the Usenet, and let it separate between flotspam and jetspam." So Infinity uncovered the newsgroup, and separated the posting which were beneath the newsgroup, and the postings which were above the newsgroup. And it was so. Infinity called to the newsgroup; "alt.fan.tom-servo." And there was posting, and there was trolling, the second thread. -*- plain, simple, blackhawk. I think the Undernet stuff came somewhere between thread 5 and 6, right after Infinity creates "bongwankers" but before does away with "all manner of pants that creepth or slitherith up thine ass."
