If you don't stop, I'm mailing Chris and see what she has to say.....

Maybe we could ask his mommy to take away his 'puter.

The big fonts are inherently disruptive to the readability of any thread where it is posted. That's why it is being used. No other reason.

However, since the big text person has nothing to say, I suspect the only thing that keeps him/her/it coming back is to see our reaction. No reaction, and the game will get tedious. Then probably big text will wander away to somewhere more fun to disrupt.

That should be the first resort. If big text stays around a long time in spite of getting no reaction and keeps trying to render the forum unusable, then maybe OTFR should step in as a last resort.

Sorry, Brian, but big text man has much more to contribute than, for example, CPR, who hasn't been convinced to stop posting his giant disruptive paste jobs, even though no one is reading them. Also, if you're beyond the first flush of youth, the big text is a relief to the eyes.

CPR does have something to say, for those who wan't to figure out how they were conned into believeing thing would be worse than they were.

Looking back at what was said and done can make one understand what to watch out for in the future, especially on the internet where the normal constraints against publishing false information do not seen to apply. Anyone who doesn't want to read what Charles wants to say doesn't have to click on his posts, simple as that. If they click on his posts, read them, get upset and complain, that would be their own problem, some kind of jsutifcatioin of masatistic tendencies anly they will be able to deal with.

As this is a "free" forum, CPR has the right to post what he pleases, just like everyone else.

I will post what I wish to, using my own descretion, as can every other person who chooses to.

We will have to put up with childish posts like those from big text man, but those who are amused by doing things like that are soon bored and move on. (usually)

>> CPR ... posting his giant disruptive paste jobs, even though no one is reading them. <<

The great majority of cpr's big cut-and-paste jobs are the start of new, boring threads that few read. When cpr jumps into other people's threads, he is usually just indulging himself in a bit of over-excited rhetoric (IN CAPS!) or some self-appreciative sneering. That is not purposely disruptive activity, as I see it. His new threads are easy to skip, and his additions to ongoing threads are usually short.

Big text is different. His additions to other threads are just so many words, the words have no purpose but to take up space as big text. He does not clean up his tags. His disruptiveness is calculated. But we should still just ignore him as best we can.

BTW, thanks to the low-key tag-cleaner-uppers for taking out big text's trash for us.

-- Brian McLaughlin (brianm@ims.com), July 10, 2000.

As usual, Cherri misses the point entirely. Of course CPR is free to post his nonsense; whoever said otherwise? The question, however, is where are all the "victims" clamoring for "justice"? I don't see anyone complaining about having been misled. All I see is CPR telling people that they were misled. No one seems to care, so he is just wasting his time and ours. But hey, it's a free country (or forum), so he can go on posting the same nonsense again and again forever. The question is why he bothers.

-- truth teller (truth@teller.x), July 10, 2000.

Right on truth teller.

I have pondered this question of cpr's motive and have no proper answer, in this case I've learned to ignore the issue mostly..... I don't want the poison.
