Default Pinging group: storm clouds developing

This NG, along with wallpaper and wallpaper.duplicats, is certainly one
of the friendliest of any on Usenet. Lots of excellent content, universal
approval, almost no trolls, zero flames, and plenty of friendly people.
I have particularly enjoyed sharing my car pictures with the group and
taking in content I am interest in as well as meeting new people.

But, sadly, I see trouble coming. I don't know if what I'm seeing is
some sort of advance guard action before a pending invasion, some sort
of testing the waters effort, or just benign activies. But, I fear that
the beginning of the end is near for this idyllic setting. Accordingly,
I have decided to suspend posting any more of my own car and non-car
picture collection and all posting of my Usenet downloads until I am
able to discern the true intent of the unusual people I'm seeing here
and their unkind comments. If what I fear comes to pass, strap
yourselves in for a continuing and accelerating amount of racism,
bigotry, perversion, and hatred. You won't be able to discern why it is
happening, but it will, and it will destroy this NG like it has so many
others.

This is all I intend to say on this subject. I will be interested in
any comments that are made and very interested in what unfolds over the
next few weeks. To all my new friends, I wish it could be otherwise but
I fear for the worst. Good luck, and make your own decision as to what
to do or not do based on my comments and what you have personally seen
so far or what you may see in the future. Thank you and have a great
week!

It is a sad day when one has to withdraw his/her support from a group because
of some dubious persons. However, it does not surprise me and even baffles
me when not more leave. I think the problem lies in the lack of respect for
others, the thought that every one owes them something of the instant
gratification generation. They have a rude awakening coming.

You will be missed.

Are you sure you have the right group here Jerry?
Or have I missed something the past few Days?
I hope you are talking about some other group!
Good luck dealing with these fools.

Paul

Ray, I once knew a guy at work at Chrysler that used to say "the world
is largely composed of assholes!". Yep, true enough, I suppose. The
Usenet equivalent is the ever-present trolls. It is remotely possible
that what I've flushed out earlier in "wallpaper" all too easily will
come here but will eventually die down or hopefully even go away. If it
does, I'll come back. However, my collection of postable ships isn't
really all that large beyond those I've already posted. Meanwhile, I
will certainly still be around and just as friendly as always - to the
folks who've been ultra-friendly to me since Day One.

Have a pleasant week.

Thank you, Bouler. I'm sure you've seen the sad, sad proof of my worst
nightmare over in a.b.p.wallpaper, I'm sure it will eventually spread to
here and duplicates as well. I'd suggest that we all just stay calm,
don't do anything dumb ourselves, and simply batten down the hatches
until the typhoon blows itself out.

Have a nice week!

Paul, I intended to post a customized version of my novellete to this NG,
a.b.p.wallpaper and a.b.p.wallpaper.duplicates but I managed to post the
duplicates one twice incorrectly. Yes, I'm afraid I DID mean this NG as
well as the other two. I hadn't specifically seen anything here that
raised my attennae as I did in duplicates but if the bad apples are out
there, they'll eventually get into this barrel as well. Let's just all
stay cool and maybe it'll blow over before anything gets started.

The main reason I posted my message today is because I made a number of
new friends here and downloaded some terrific ship pictures I never was
aware of prior to meeting Bouler in wallpaper and I did NOT want to be
the cause of and rancor or discord here. It is exactly what I said, a
VERY friendly place which I do not want to mess up, so I thought my best
course of action would be to stand down and just listen rather than to
actively ping my sonar.
