Wish and hope succeed in discerning signs of paranormality where reason and
careful scientific procedure fail.

"Once he had one leg in the White House and the nation trembled under his
roars. Now he is a tinpot pope in the Coca-Cola belt and a brother to the
forlorn pastors who belabor halfwits in galvanized iron tabernacles behind
the railroad yards."
-- H. L. Mencken, writing of William Jennings Bryan, counsel for the
supporters of Tennessees anti-evolution law at the Scopes "Monkey
Trial" in 1925.

When Yahweh your gods has settled you in the land youre about to occupy, and
driven out many infidels before you...youre to cut them down and exterminate
them. Youre to make no compromise with them or show them any mercy.
[Deut. 7:1 (KJV)]

THE "FUN WITH USENET" MANIFESTO
Very little happens on Usenet without some sort of response from some other
reader. Fun With Usenet postings are no exception. Since there are some who
might question the rationale of some of the excerpts included therein, I have
written up a list of guidelines that sum up the philosophy behind these
postings.

One. I never cut out words in the middle of a quote without a VERY
good reason, and I never cut them out without including ellipses. For
instance, "I am not a goob" might become "I am ... a goob", but thats too
mundane to bother with. "Im flame proof" might (and has) become
"Im ...a... p...oof" but thats REALLY stretching it.

Two. If I cut words off the beginning or end of a quote, I dont
put ellipses, but neither do I capitalize something that wasnt capitalized
before the cut. "I dont think that the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful
place" would turn into "the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful place". Imagine
the posting as a tape-recording of the posters thoughts. If I can set
up the quote via fast-forwarding and stopping the tape, and without splicing,
I dont put ellipses in. And by the way, I love using this mechanism for
turning things around. If you think something stinks, say so - dont say you
dont think its wonderful. ...
