I probably will get net-copped for rearing my ugly head again, but
we don't know what post it was that got crossposted here, or possibly
spoofed for bob.  It was not intentional, and it was some time ago.
If a moose poem ended up here, it is probably a sure bet it came from
alt.bigfoot.  Bob doesn't even know, no one sent him a note, and no
one has been reading this forum.  I do know that he got majorly net-copped,
though, and it was over something as mundane as a moose poem.

P.s.  I am trying to stay out of this forum.  I already posted the
address to send stuff too, and really had no intention of starting a
flame war, like another brilliant person emailed to my system administrator
claiming I was trying to do.  A much better way to start a flame war would
be to pose as a scientist that comes up with a cure for homosexuality,
or posting plans for a "home abortion kit" or something as distasteful
as these.   I am just trying to get access back for a friend that was
wrongfully treated.  Thank you.
