    Hello Earl,

    No, it was not. There is no rule against anyone reading the
    echo, that was advice to stop doing so.

    As usual, you pretend to miss the point.

    Unlike The Great Earl, who knows all, and never misses the point.

    You ruled that if anyone feels they are being provoked in your echo
    they should react by not reading the provocation.

    This is the Debate echo, where participants are encouraged to provoke
    others. If a participant fails to do so, that participant needs to go
    back to the funny farm and find a different way to get participants to
    pull their finger. Until he or she does it right (getting other
    participants to imitate Don Rickles), that participant remains just
    a rank amateur. Unnerstan'?

    That makes Peter's provocation rule moot, just as it makes the
    rule about personal attacks moot. This was already explained more EC>thoroughly. You just ignored it. Nothing new.

    Don Rickles is the King of Insult. All others are mere pretenders
    to the throne. Don explained that to me, in French, at a casino in
    Louisiana last year. And then he smiled, as the audience laughed.

    You posted it in the Debate echo. I returned it here.
    Debate Echo msg 1620 on Docsplace, Sept 3, 2013.

    You are talking about a post that appeared in your echo on
    9/3/2013, at 11:24 AM. I posted it in THIS echo on
    9/2/2013, at 7:23 PM (#4997).

    Which leads to a somewhat obvious question: how dumb ARE
    you?

    How did it wind up in the Debate echo?

    YOUR explanation seems to be that I posted the message in
    my echo via the Prism BBS at 11:24 AM on September 3, 2013.
    And then I patiently waited until Jan. 1, 2098, at exactly

    My explanation is I don't have the foggiest idea how and when
    you posted in your echo, nor why or how you posted in my echo,
    but your message did show up in my echo. That is where and why I
    responded to you there.

    All the rest is your ducking and dodging.

    RE: You posting in 2098 and 1985 and in my echo and your echo
    etc.

    You have double posted several messages in this echo. If you
    can't get that right don't bitch about what your BBS says about
    when you posted.

    That was not a ruling. That was advice to Richardson.

    It was your official interpretation of the rule, and it
    makes the rule moot.

    No, it was not. There is no rule against anyone reading the

    You posted it in the Debate echo. I returned it here.
    Debate Echo msg 1620 on Docsplace, Sept 3, 2013.

    You are talking about a post that appeared in your echo on
    9/3/2013, at 11:24 AM. I posted it in THIS echo on

    Which leads to a somewhat obvious question: how dumb ARE
    you?

    How did it wind up in the Debate echo?

    YOUR explanation seems to be that I posted the message in
    my echo via the Prism BBS at 11:24 AM on September 3, 2013.

    Your statement is deceptive. I was going to say deliberately
    deceptive, but I realized you may not be thinking clearly.

    I never said a word about the Prism BBS. I do not access the
    Prism BBS, and know nothing about the Prism BBS other than it
    exists.

    I said it appeared in the Debate echo. Your response seems to
    imply I am supposed to know it was somehow cross posted there.
    Your response is pure BS.

    And then I patiently waited until Jan. 1, 2098, at exactly
    zero o'clock, to repost the same thing in your echo via

    I still haven't figured out how you posted anything in 2098. I
    just rechecked my archives, I find no reference to 2098.

    the Prism BBS. If that is true, you aren't going to READ
    IT for another 85 years! And yet you seem certain that you
    will still be the moderator of that echo in the year 2098!

    Where did you see the year 2098 mentioned? The only place I see
    it is in your messages.

    Just to make sure, I went back on Docsplace, reset my message
    pointers to the last Oct packet I downloaded, and re-downloaded
    everything from there up to date. I then searched for the number
    2098. The only place I see the year 2098 is in your messages.

    Do you have sufficient intelectual capacity to understand that
    something might have happened to it in the Prism BBS system?

    Indirectly, you are answering my question. You aren't
    coming right out and SAYING how dumb you are, but you are
    demonstrating it.

    Actually, all you are doing is demonstrating how dumb you are.
    You are so desperate for someway to look like you are winning an
    arguement that you are inventing a reason for a personal attack.

    Believe it or not, you can ignore any echo you want and it has
    no effect on any echo rule. Peter's rule did not require anyone
    to read the echo.

    His remedy for provocation was to prohibit it. Your remedy
    for provocation is to say to the victim "don't read the
    echo." That makes the rule moot, just as it makes the rule
    on personal attacks moot.

    Provocation is prohibited in the Debate echo. Saying something
    Richardson disagrees with, no matter how vehemently, is not
    provocation. If he thinks a post to others, on something I truly
    believe to be true, is a deliberate attempt to provoke him, he
    is seriously paranoid.

    Since none of that appears in my download from Docsplace, it
    would appear that the problem is on your end. Check with your

    I said it appeared in the Debate echo. Your response seems to

    internet, or did you use dialup back then?

    what do you mean it doesn't show up on Doc's Place? that's where you posted them from... the reality is that something has a broken date problem... either your reader or the door on the BBS you post from... i have numerous "y2k" packets here and all of them show posts from you with dates ranging from 1995 to 2034... some messages have accurate dates but others do not... i'm unable to
    determine what the factor(s) are for this from the raw PKTs i have at hand...

    how did i ""capture"" them?? as a fido mail distributor, i run a tool called PKTDATE which sidelines PKT files with bad dates in them but this tool also corrects those dates and passes the messages on... currently i have this tool running to catch dates that are out by more than 2 years either way... plus or minus...

    i can make these PKTs available to you if you like so you can see the actual dates in the raw PKTs as they arrived here on my system if you like... LIST.COM
    shows them easily as will any other tool that shows the raw binary data contained in a file...

    the main question is what reader/editor are you using for your offline activities because all of the messages in question show Silver Xpress in the tearline but there's no indication of whether this is the SX door or the SX reader/editor that is used...

    The messages do not show up in the packets I download from
    Docsplace. I do archive all the packets that apply to me in any
    way, and I do not find that message in the Debate echo.

    However, they do show up on fido.ozzmossis.com, and there are
    msgs from Earl Croasmun and Lee Lafaso also with the messed up
    dates. Neither of them post from Docsplace. So that suggests
    it's happening outside of Docsplace.

    Oh, I am using the silverxpress reader.

    Did my post in DEBATE, that you seem to have cross posted into this one, not

    our

    You posted your comment in DEBATE, and obviously I should have
    responded there.
    Unfortunately, I could not. Bob revenge-banned me from that echo a
    long time ago. That was the only reason I moved it here. I follow
    rules, even arbitrary ones.

    Then send me netmail.... EOD...

    He can respond to msgs in Debate here, that was my purpose in
    reviving this echo.

    Of course he will deny that.

    Unfortunately, I opened up my Twit list to read another twit's post
    elsewhere and there you were. Back in the hole you go.

    Roy... like I actually give a shit.

    If you didn't give a shit and knew that you're included in a Twit
    filter, along with the other morons in Fidonet who deserve to be there, why did you bother to reply? Oh, that's right, even though you say EOD, you actually can't stop your mouth from frothing because you have to
    have the last word...

    Thought I was on twit?? You are indeed a walking disaster


    BTW.. it wasn't I who dragged this shit into here... it was your
    buttbuddy Crossmun

    Wrong again, as usual. Klahn brought a huge pile of shit from DEBATE
    and you couldn't stand just wallowing in it there, you had to drag it
    here too. If you would keep your nose out of his ass long enough, you might actually get things right for a change.

    Shit for brains... I answered Klahn IN the DEBATE echo... not here you idiot. Get your stories straight. Crossmun answered me here... being he's "banned" in DEBATE he crossposted ever here. If it bothered him that much he should have discussed it in netmail with me not cross post in this cesspool.


    so get your facts straight. Guess it's tough for you when you can't
    rely on wiki.

    Kinda like leaning on the EPA for your misinformation, eh Doobie...

    Yeah, like that icemelt you said was developed in Texas which actually was developed in Colorado. And the name of it... saying it was liquid originally when the stuff you were talking about was granular... I gave you the name of the liquid version. Shit for brains... it fits you.


    If your buttbuddy would have posted my entire message here rather
    than a small piece of it you'd have seen I told Bob I could not find
    any such message in DEBATE but I did find it here therefore adding substance to your buttbuddy's claim. Now...

    Man, you can't do any talking without referencing homosexual activities ... I guess you're well educated in that realm of New Jersey..

    Hey, he's you friend you share a six pack of Lone Star and K-Y with... so the monikor "buttboy" fits you both. Give it up Roy... you're wrong on this one... so just face it and go suck on some humble pie. I answered in DEBATE... so piss off.


    WTF is your problem?

    I don't have any...wtf is your problem? Don't bother to answer that, as I'm not interested your homosexual activities.

    I was going to say your inability to develop and opinion without the use of wiki or any other information service on the net. It's obvious you have no idea what you're talking about without it. Amazing... isn't technology grand... makes you a psuedo-genius. Kudos...


    Pathetic little weasel... all of ya...

    That damned mirror you're looking into can't help but give you the pathetic look...

    LOL.... is that all you got? What, you're going to throw the old rubber and glue routine next? Pathetic. GO fix a car...


    BYE...

    Bring Your Elderly shit to DEBATE...

    LOL... again, that all you have??


    ... Lick the bro. Squeeze a pimple. Piss on the floor. Dems do!

    Now that's better, Wendy...


    Ahhh.... here's your MO... purposely editing a post to suit your twisted mind... fits you to a "T"... go break out a 6-pack with your buddy Crossmun. Make sure he brings the K-Y. LOL!!

    This is fun... you're easy... Care to try playing again... you get 3 chances for a quarter..

    By the way....here in typical `Klahn-ish' style is
    something hilarious. The democrats, in their typical


    And you display your inability to keep focused on one topic. I
    will delete the rest of this without reading.


    You might want to take a peek at the title of this echo: ALL-POLITICS.


    Most of what I post on has to do with the issues that are currently in the political arena.


    The subjects I post about, and the articles I post about them, pretty well
    fall into the criteria of this echo's name.


    You, on the other hand, bring your petty little whines and complaints about people posting in your `nothing' echo from here...cross-posting from her to there, or visa versa, and you add nothing to any discussion in here except
    your silly little complaints and sandbox nonsense.


    People in here laugh at you because you're funny! You are ridiculed because
    you so readily open yourself up to ridicule! You aren't a `debate opponent', you're a joke! I taunt you because for me its a fun pass time. I like pissing you off. I do it deliberately. Fuck you.


    Take care that I don't hunt up an off-shore system that allows me to post in your echo with immunity from anything Ed Koon or Ross Cassell can do to cut my feed to your little hole-in-the-wall (oh yes, they DO exist), and taunt you on your own home ground.


    In the mean time...here's something for you to chew on:


    Palin: Breitbart News Fighting to Preserve America's Exceptionalism


    Breitbart.com


    by Tony Lee12 Nov 2013343post a comment


    On Tuesday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin praised Breitbart News for unflinchingly fighting to preserve America's exceptionalism every day on its website.


    In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and Breitbart News Sunday host Stephen K. Bannon, Palin, who said she had Breitbart.com on her
    laptop and was honored to be associated with anything "Breitbart" related, discussed her new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.


    A central theme of Palin's book is that the fight to preserve something as simple and sacred as Christmas is the "tip of the spear" in the greater battle to preserve the country's freedom and exceptionalism. And she praised Breitbart.com for fighting that war on a daily basis.


    "You guys talk about this so often in your commentaries there on Breitbart about American exceptionalism," Palin said. "You guys explain to Americans how important it is to understand why we are exceptional."


    Palin said the country is exceptional not because we are "pretending like
    we're
    better than anybody else." Rather, she said America was exceptional because "we're different."


    "Our government was to be created unlike any other government... to allow individuals equal opportunity to soar, to succeed, to be rewarded for innovation and work ethic ... and all of it is was going to be built on freedom," Palin said.


    She then said that "when we see these steps taken" - such as natural birth Nativity scenes and other politically correct scenes gone amok - to erode the country's traditions, Americans can see what "it is going to be like" when "that freedom is stripped away from us even in that arena of celebrating Christmas."


    "Then we will certainly lose that exceptionalism," Palin said.


    She said she fears on "some days we are already on the road toward" decline, and "we will no longer be the America that we recognize."


    "We will be a fundamentally transformed America that so many of us did not
    sign up for," Palin warned.


    Her book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, is
    not only a celebration of Christmas but also a reminder that if angry atheists and scrooges can audaciously wage wars on Christmas, then the country's most sacred freedoms and liberties will not be forever guaranteed unless Americans fight to ensure that they are.


    The rest of Palin's interview with Bannon can be heard in full on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 7 PM to 10 PM EST this Sunday.
