    I love the way that people who plonk others feel the need to inform
    everyone of it. That ranks up there with, "I know what you are, but
    what am I?"

    I think most people will want to be polite to a blind.

    I very much doubt that the same applies to usenet posters
    they want to plonk.

    *Why* are you replying to spam messages like this? The spam in c.a.e.
    usually costs me about 10-15 seconds a day pressing "K" for "kill
    thread" on my newsreader - but your bizarre new habit has cost me far
    more in trying to think out a rational explanation for your posts.
