That reminds me of the BBS days when I once ran a whole bunch of
discussion threads through the 'jive filter', deleted the originals, and
reposted it all. This was possible because that particular BBS package
allowed the originater of a discussion thread to delete all 'child'
comments on the discussion thread. Needless to say people were OUTRAGED
at seeing their own entries turned into Jive and I got into a LOT of
trouble. Those were the days. Now I try to be a bit more ethical...
