[cdt-l] amazing.....

It's an ego thing. Ever meet someone who has been everywhere and done
everything, in their minds only. They have very low self esteem and this is
how they try to raise it up. Unfortunately, they do not know when to stop.
Eventually, you know what they are and ignore them. They become irrelevant,
and know it themselves, and eventually go away to find someone else who may
listen them.

Doug -
First - welcome to the zoo.  Ginny told me you were here, but I haven't
posted here for probably 6 months or more - partly because I've been busy,
partly because there are others who've had more recent experience on the
trail - and largely because it hurts to talk about something I can't do
again for another 3 years.  But that doesn't mean I abandoned the list - or
the trail.

As for your questions - I don't have a complete answer.  I don't think
anyone does.  But from a purely pragmatic viewpoint - he's sick.  Very sick.
I waded through some of what he's put on other lists and newsgroups - enough
to get an idea what he's about.  And I needed a shower afterwards.  He gets
his kicks from  stirring up trouble - and he's  virulently
anti-authoritarian - among other things. Enuff - if he shows up again, we
(or rather Ryan) will deal with it.

In the meantime - I'd appreciate seeing some trail-related stuff go by.  And
I'd like to thank Ryan for his troll-killing efforts as well as for
providing this forum.
