Were you bored?

By the way, your .sig prefix is broken. It's only one space after the
two hyphens.

It was a shot at Lemming. You see Lemming asked if you were bored. br d
responded that you will be now that Lemming was talking to you. Now my
boring post is proof that it was true. It is proof because now both Lemming
and I are talking to you so that you will be extra extra bored.

No, your .sig is broken. Standards m'dear; standards. I would
explain why it's important, but I'd probably bore you to death. It
would be much simpler to just fix your .sig, don't you agree?

No excuse. It's better to quote just a few lines. Some people pay by
the byte for newsgroups. It also means one doesn't have a wade through
the entire quote to find a one or two sentence answer.

Where to begin? Your post was banal to the point of crassness, almost
entirely content-free, took up many of those precious bytes you so
jealously guard for those poor people who pay by the byte, crossposted
to space-sim, action and alt.hacker(!?) Brain-dead by anyone's
standards. You'll fit in perfectly.

Aw, what the heck, we tolerate everyone here, even the intolerable.
Anyway, botto seems to like you. Mind you, he'll be asking you to
"flop them out" any minute, so I wouldn't be too flattered by that.

"Flop them out" sounds like the perfect pick up line that could never miss.
