Why does Usenet attract so many fruitcakes?
Yesterday over in alt.musicmakers.trumpet someone posted their web site address. Someone else said the photo was not very good. I pointed out the photo was OK it was just the width and height that were wrong, making it look pixelated. I also posted a link to my site as I had just updated it.
This morning I found this in my inbox from the guy who had designed the web site with the photo on it:
I checked out your web site. At least I can spell and type.
The strange thing is I had not critices his site at all, just pointed out that the photo was intact which other people were claiming it was not.
I don'tt know why I bother with Usenet. It would have died a long time ago without Google Groups, so if Google goes for a stock market flotation they may have to pull out of legally difficult areas like usenet.
As for alt.musicmakers.trumpet, it was killed off a long time ago by "Mikey". Most people are over in Trumpet Herald or Trumpetmaster.
