Nice Joe-
I was going to say the same thing yesterday; but then thought it was so 
obvious that this guy who ate the 50 mushrooms was acting irresponsibly, 
I decided not to comment.  My mind changed overnight, however; and I was 
glad to see your post this morning.  I've said it before- while I would in no 
way look to constrain the freedom of the posters to the newsgroups, as I 
feel that in sharing any and all info. lies the chance at Truth, Honesty, and 
ultimately, Wisdom, I am often saddened that alt.drugs groups (which I 
think so interesting and important) are often dominated by tales of 
ignorance and irresponsibility.  It is all our duty to point out cases where 
peoples irresponsiblity, because when we do not, time has shown us that 
drastic measures are almost always taken against the 
thing-in-question-used, rather than the person (so much) his/herself.
Again- we all have made and will make stupid decisions, but the Beauty of 
our species is that we can learn from them, and so prescribe caution.
