What was the question? …
How am I supposed to reply to this:

A little bit of background. I used to post daily to a Usenet group that was more or less dead. No input and all I learned was nastiness. Which I was already pretty good at anyway. So I decided to change.
Anyway I noticed that the weather was about to break with some large earthquakes towards Japan-way. I'd have left it there as years of farting into the wind have innured me to a stoicism that will only see the results after my lone travail is over.
But I got one reply by someone who never bothered to read my post. Not that I blame him for that. I couldn't even be bothered to edit it for clarity. (What would have been the point?)
So I gave him an impolitic mouthful. I will probably clean it up later after his finger have started to heal. Meanwhile no link for the sake of the children.
Anyway, back to the question.
Someone asks you a question on line. Is it empty rhetoric. He has ignored you just now and he will ignore you again. He actually says that he will. So I can't really reply can I?
Well I can write this I suppose. Self gratifying though it be. At least I can use smilies if I want to. But I never claimed to anything else but a petty self abuser.
I'd like to be nice. But at the moment I am not.:D
