....they sure get busy, just to have it eliminated so quickly.
There must be places where they get satisfaction of such
a waste of time posting.

Only been with computer and the net about 4 years now, so
it amazes me, and I really had to stop and think about what

Deleting does no good, let them post and just ignore them.
Pretty soon they will have more posts than anyone and be
first in the forum list on all threads.
