Subject: How to Perpetuate an Unwanted Thread


It has been my observation that the best way to perpetuate an unwanted
thread
is to:

1.    Post a message saying that the subject is inappropriate for this
listservice.

2.    Post a message questioning the intelligence, education and heritage of
the original poster.

3.    Post a message saying that the poster objecting to the original post
has questionable intelligence, education, and heritage.

4.    Post a message saying that both are out of line.

5.    Post a message agreeing with any of the previous posts.

6.    Post a message disagreeing with any of the previous posts.

7.    Post a message in support of Wildwoman.

8.    Post a joke.  (A *true* joke, not a vilification.)

9.    Shafat post a message asking everybody to cease and desist.

While, I suspect, anyone would be free to add to or comment on this list, I
am not inviting it.
