It is a flatfish tactic
Stir up a discussion in disparate groups
Then when you have a flamewar started, set follow-ups to cola and perhaps
alt.comp.os.windows-xp to keep Kadaitcha and his felchers interested
That way he can draw the most complete idiots into cola
Just notice how each time when "interest" of csma-twits dwindles flatfish
will start a crossposted dung-filled post to cola and csma to get the
Edwins, Snots, OxRetards and Sandmans back into cola
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.
