Jeffrey blossoms at lunch time by Franklin[_17_]
Why do Jeffrey Bloss's posts blossom at lunch time? Is there something vitriolic in his food? If Jeffrey doesn't finish his posts at lunch time then he carries on at 5 or 6 pm. The timing of Jeffrey's posts last came to attention when he was posting as "David W". David W posts appeared in...

We can only hope. I have found out the Truth. William "Billy Bob Bear" Bottoms, ex aviator/drug smuggler was ordered to Cease And Desist from posting to Usenet.

Just keep posting by VOR-DME[_2_]
We’ve been through this before. Seems to be a regrettable feature of Usenet life. Bertie Bloss believes his infantile antics will send others reeling. He VASTLY overestimates his own influence in the scheme of things. Bertie Bloss does not realize that most here are adults. We have all been...
