Johnny, If you think we should fight over the same thing every time,
please continue. This is exactly the same topic as in the port-vax list
2 or 3 years before. Otherwise (using your words): live with it.

What I have done?
I was sarcastic, that was all.
There where no insulting words in my mail.

What I have reached with that?
Besides of your opinion about my childishness, there where other answers
that where at least interresting. (Thanks to Dave and Richard at this point,
I've subscribed comp.os.vms in the meantime but think I meet the same
people there)

"When people start offending me.." ... read was I wrote and read again
what you wrote.

"I am obviously not going to change them" .. but this is exactly what you
trying to do here.

Sorry for being "obnoxious":
My Answer to your answer in this thread was "Yes", accepting what our
wrote to me, now the thing was done for me.  I knew why I only wrote that.

So from my point of view you don't wanted the discussion to be completed,
so that seems to be your hobby. You are looking a little bit like an
choleric from here, may be I'm the only one that feels like this.
Besides of that I know that you are an clever fellow and you trying to
help if you can. So if that aren't your shoes, why the heck your trying
to wear them?

About the killfile:

I think I'm a "strong enough personality" so I don't think the computer
should decide for me if I should read something or not. On the other side
I'm trying to help people if I can, even if the pissed on my shoes in the
past and sometimes enemies are turning into friends over time. No, don't
need no killfile on my side. Don't get me wrong, that's no technical
problem this time, we all get tons of spam mails and most of us have
mechanisms to prevent spam from appearing in the inbox. I'm a small hosting
company of my own and the usual mechanisms for that are installed an working,
no problem to add folks there but I prefer deciding myself.

Back to the topic:

I think it where much more helpful to answer things like "Sorry don't know,
never had todo with that", vs.  simply saying nothing at all, leaving
the man that looks for help alone. Maybe that's only my point of view,
maybe not.

about my intention: When I ask for help or opinions, I need that help
or opinion, since I can't find a way tho clear the problem on my own.
So Dave Wade isn't totally wrong with that what he thinks about my post.
Maybe not "a cry of desperation" maybe more " there anyone
out there..?"

Now, after that many text about "Role of Meaning" is it just me that
thinks that the time where better to be used for clearing technical
