no, people came to sloan net because they want to talk to me.  close 
minded neo-hitlers.  oh, yeah they also want to talk about (*duh*) good east 
coast independant music.  this, waye, is why no one wants to talk about 
sandbox and co.  also because they are a regional embarrasment.

maybe if they had added it in a "ps" to a relevant post, no one would 
mind, but inspiring an entire insipid thread devoted to this is sheer lunacy.

direspectful to "the list" and to the "like-minded people" on it.  
posting something so completely off-topic without any attempt to put it 
into a maritime context is just stupid, and the fact that people keep on 
doing it, after countless angry posts from list members is just rude.  so 
shut the fuck up.

your stupidity is nothing short of breathtaking.  what is this list 
about?  gee i don't know .. why? because i am lame.  i am a fucking moron 
who can't figure out his ass from his mouth.  east coast discussion list 
= east coast bands.  i would like to exist in a mailing list whose topic 
is east coast bands.  i don't give two shits about what the fuck is 
happening at lee's palce next week, and if i did, i could read eye weekly 
or now any other TO rag.  please spare us from your sactimonious 
bullshit, and don't you DARE talk dowm to anyone.

not everyone has the single-handed ability to lower the collective IQ of 
a mailing list by 50 points with one post either.  by george, i think 
you've done it.


ps - fuck off
