Re: [gpsstash] Re: All the latest nonsense


C'mon now, guys! Don't be so quick to generalize.
Look over the petty bitchers. Count 'em. There are
no more than five or six of 'em Block 'em as senders
and your list is sanitized. Don't throw the baby out with
the bath water. Be cool. Plonk 'em. And continue to
share with the community. It's not a bad community and
you have total control of its content what with the delete
key and 'block sender'.

There are always those of arrested development who
can only lay on the floor and rant and kick their heels
because the world refuses to behave precisely as they
insist it should. You gonna let these ludites decide your life?

Not me! Plonk!! to you, and you, and you and, especially, you!!!
