    No need. He's got a lock on Idiot of the Month and is already a strong
    contender for Idiot of the Year.

    Leeches...whatever...to pull usenet content into your website's
    "forums" and surround it with ads is just pathetic...JG

    What's pathetic is that there seems to be a market for usenet
    threads put into badly designed web pages full of ads.

    Obviously you don't understand Usenet too well.

    My posts from 1991 are still floating around on Google Groups!

    Just bear in mind that when you post a message, its preserved forever.

    Keep on posting stuff about him and he'll lash out at you like he did at
    me. Called me a Nazi, etc. Was quite a bit of fun :)

    Yep, I had someone come up to me a week ago in Florida and ask me about
    some early 1990's posts regarding parallel ports.

    DUH, I didn't catch that. The way I read it was his complaining of his
    material leaching into the internet at large and was thinking he meaning
    leaching, i.e migrating.

    While he's obviously unclear on usenet (posts become public domain by
    default - but we'll have to get Navas' legal opinion on that), ohh...
    nevermind. I need coffee to think beyond to paragraphs.

    Google honors X-No-Archive
    If the OP isn't using it, then the case is much weaker.

    Just a nit... X-No-Archive doesn't apply for when one's postings are
    repeated in whole or in part by follow-up postings that don't apply
    X-No-Archive. Some people are still confused about this.

    Personally I think that when you make a usenet posting you should assume
    that you have put that content into the equivalent of the public domain.

    Legally that's not true.

    First, your link didn't work (no response).

    Second, if it isn't true, did you first check with John Horner before
    reposting his copyrighted response? <g>

    Practically speaking, that's the case. Almost no one would have the
    resources to get their postings removed from all the servers that they
    end up on, and on all the forums they are reposted in.

    I see postings of mine from the early 1990's still floating around in
    many forums, and I don't mean just on deja.com (Google Groups).

    Third, there are things in life that are worth getting excited about,
    and this doesn't really seem to be one of them.
