I'm new to this newsgroup. I thought I could update my knowledge but I guess
not. I keep seeing valid questions from folks looking for answers and then I
see posts by this Jackass "HOWEDY". Whatever good he might have to offer is
lost in his ravings like a lunatic. It's jerks like this that ruin a
newsgroup because they dominate and overcome the sensible people who like me
finally tune out! All of this posting, is of course IMHO.

Did you have a health related question or comment?

The non-existent people who can control what everyone else posts,
apparently. Or maybe he mistook rec.pets.dogs.health for
alt.random.complaints?

.......we only see him when people like you refer to him! Filter him out.
Complaining about it just drives the rest of us nuts.

Nice one.

A noob pops in and complains that the resident lunatic puts them off joining
in in.
Then anyone who they may be able to have a sensible exchange with jumps on
them.

Good luck with your group.

Huh. I do but I have yet to see anyone in this group display the necessary
level of wit or knowledge to be able to answer it. Huh.

Oh yeah, huh.

The choice is your's, but there are plenty of well-read, intelligent
folks here. I figure you're more interesting in whining, than learning.
Do you know how to unsubscribe from this group?

That's a fair description of Howe. Because you are new here, it is fair
to tell you that he is probably the most filtered--kill filed--person
around. People who just have to talk to and/or about him are soon
filtered out, too. Like you, they are warned and given a choice.

Regardless of the news reader you're using, someone here can help you
set up a filter for Howe.

Whatever good he might have to offer is
lost in his ravings like a lunatic. It's jerks like this that ruin a
newsgroup because they dominate and overcome the sensible people who like me
finally tune out! All of this posting, is of course IMHO.


For you information, Howe does not "dominate and overcome" anyone here.
Most of us forget he exist, until a new subscriber comes along. As
Buglady wisely explained, "......we only see him when people like you
refer to him! Filter him out. Complaining about it just drives the rest
of us nuts."

So, you can stay and learn, or unsubscribe; the choice is your's. Isn't
that great!

No one "jumped on" Old Timer. He was treated kindly. Period.

The fact that you find inadequate intelligence here only shows what you
know. More accurately, it shows your ignorance.

There are plenty of intelligent people in this group. Some of them are
not always tactful, and there is some throat cutting. However, there are
a lot of great ideas, sound opinions, and a good base of hard facts.

News groups are not for the timid.

Good luck in adjusting your attitude.
