Once again, I would like to apologize for all of the flamers to all you out there who got annoyed by wpi.forsale flooded by a bunch of senseless messages. wpi.forsale is an important forum for all of us who are always in search for a bargain or to get rid of unnecessary goods or just one of us poor college souls who are looking to make a few bucks to spare.

Only one more thing to say for me, if you guys got balls to say something, why not say it to my face? Why do you have to flood the newsgroup with dumb messages? What you do is you press 'r' to reply. Then when it asks if you want to post it on the newsgroup, press 'n' to block the message from going to the newsgroup. It's that simple.

Is this all the balls you got? taking cheap shots on computer screen? Don't you guys spend enough time on computers already?

Don't think I'm just a jealous dumb kid since I'm probably smarter than most of you out there.

I'll be getting in touch with all the ones that flamed me - because I don't have to take it from geeks and freaks - I'm really very tired of it; no physical threats - just a talk unless they start it first - I'm much more intelligent than you guys might think - I'm just too conservative to take all those freaks and geeks of wpi.

Don't worry I'm not looking to make friends - this school blows and I'm leaving.

One last thing: please send all flames to : ponch@wpi.edu only!!!
Let's see who wins!!!
thank you

So, as a result, you find it necessary to post insulting people who try to use it as such? You are such a clever boy. Remind me to name my children after you.

Oh, and fuck off.

> Only one more thing to say for me, if you guys got balls to say 
>something, why not say it to my face?  
To put it simply: Because this is much more fun, and we get the satisfaction of seeing you writhe and mewl and puke up what you consider clever responses. Once again I bid you: Fuck off.

                                       Why do you have to flood the 
>newsgroup with dumb messages?  
Because when we post this way, we get to amuse our fellows. 'Oh look,' we cry in delight, 'another idiot is getting flamed! Such fun!' We are filled with joy. It brightens our lives. And had I mentioned that you should fuck off?
>                             What you do is you press 'r' to reply.  
Thank you so much-- I had neglected to learn how to use the program with which I read news. Your contribution to my learning experience is much appreciated. Perhaps, in the future, I will be more easily able to post publically when I want to tell people to fuck off.
>Then when it asks if you want to post it on the newsgroup, press 'n' to 
>block the message from going to the newsgroup.  It's that simple.
Well, no it isn't. When you hit 'r,' it replies using mail, instead of posting at all. Or perhaps you are using a different program? Consider, for a moment, the fact that if we are posting, we know how to use our programs, and are unlikely to need your little attempts at coaching. Or was that supposed to be funny? The humorous content may have passed me right by, so quick and snappy is your joking. Please don't take this wrong when I ask you kindly to fuck right off and die a slow and painful death, preferably beneath the wheels of something large and heavy that creeps along bearing cargoes of useful medical supplies and wall-to-wall carpetting.
>  Is this all the balls you got?  taking cheap shots on computer screen?  
Well, no, I've got a couple of others, but I usually don't display them in public, as doing so tends to get one arrested.

And anyway, this is a pretty expensive shot. A cheap shot, for your information and enlightenment, would consist of this:

'Yeah, well you suck!'

As you can see, my posting here is much longer and much more complex than such simple jibes. I will, however, resort at last to simple obscenity when I ask you to fuck right on off, and to be quick about it, too.

>Don't you guys spend enough time on computers already?
Several hours a day? Probably far too much time, actually, but they are so useful I find it difficult to avoid them. With computers, I communicate, compose music, and generally enter a world of entertainment possibilities far beyond the simple mindless attractions of the television. The computer, to me, is a friend and constant companion. So maybe, yes, I do spend too much time on computers. This does not change the fact that you should, in the very near future, fuck off.
>   Don't think I'm just a jealous dumb kid since I'm probably smarter 
>than most of you out there. 
No, I think you're a jealous dumb kid because that what you've shown yourself to be. It's pretty simple-- if you're such a clever child, please demonstrate yourself as such. Show yourself to be a complete goon, and we will consider you a complete goon, and we will tell you to fuck off.
>I'll be getting in touch with all the ones that flamed me - because I 
>don't have to take it from geeks and freaks - 
Nope, but you do have to take it from a group of reasonably articulate people who don't appreciate pointless threats popping up in their newsgroups. And you have to take it in public, too. And, in public, you will be told to fuck off, much like this: Fuck off.
>                                              I'm really very tired of 
>it;
Then why don't you just fuck right off and we'll leave you alone.
>    no physical threats - just a talk unless they start it first - 
Good. After all, it's a bit difficult to have fights over computer networks, although I suppose it would be interesting, as an exercise... And if you think we're going to waste the energy to go somewhere and actually beat the living hell out of you, well, you're mistaken. You're not worth the trouble. Far more interesting (and fun!) to sit here in my small darkened room, lit only by the soft grey glow from the VT220, and send long elaborate flames in your general direction. Perhaps, in some of these flames, you will be told to fuck off. Do you find this likely? I do.

Oh, yes, definitely. I can see the intelligence oozing from your every word. I can tell by how you write that you are a bright young fellow. Your diction, your vocabulary, your creative use of punctuation. Your intelligence flows from my terminal and bathes me in a warm and silky glow. I feel honored to read the very words you type. I feel full of joy that you chose to grace my screen-- MY SCREEN!-- with the very poetry of your prose. Please, o please teach me to be more like you-- I want to know how to boast of intelligence while demonstrating very little-- to be able to do so, you must be very clever indeed. Idiot. Fuck off.
>  Don't worry I'm not looking to make friends - this school blows and I'm 
>leaving.  
Well, I, for one, will be standing on the front steps of Daniels and waving goodbye to you, and missing you already. Perhaps in the fading light from the sunset you will be able to see a single tear glinting on my cheek as I watch you vanish around the corner onto Institute, and if you listen very, very closely, you may be able to hear me whispering quietly, sadly, to myself, 'God damn, it's about time he fucking well fucked off.'

>One last thing: please send all flames to : ponch@wpi.edu only!!!
Nope, I think I'll post it. It's an old tradition, telling idiots to fuck off in public. I think I'll do it again: Fuck off!
>    Let's see who wins!!!
Let's don't.

Fuck off.

You, sir, are a twinky, squished on the sidewalk of our intellect. You bore me, you putrescent slime. Kindly fuck off.

Because we don't know who you are in person, and we don't feel the need to bother to find out. Besides, your face is probably scary anyways. (That was from mike.)

Good question. Did you ask yourself before posting?

Actually, not enough. We relish the cnance to type message after message in reply to your inane ramblings. It's in our soul.

But not smart enough to know when to shut up...otherwise you would have logged out long ago.

I hope I don't ever have to be in the same room with you and your ego...

>I don't have to take it from geeks and freaks 
Well, guess what! You don't have much say in the matter unless you plan on shooting us all, since y'all were the one who shot off your mouth first...the 'speak first, think later' argument doesn't work with this crowd.
