[ ] you repeatedly posted incoherent, flaky, and mindless posts
[ ] you posted a piece riddled with profanities
[ ] you advocated Net censorship
[ ] you SCREAMED! (used all caps)
[ ] you posted some sort of junk that doesn't belong in this group
[ ] you posted the inanely stupid 'Make Money Fast' article
[ ] you posted your UNSUB message to the list instead of the LISTSERV
[ ] you threatened others with physical harm
[ ] you made (a) bigoted statement(s)
