Whatever - I still find it lame and find it amazing that this kind of
"service" is suddenly needed in this NG after all these months - as
this isn't the first time this person has responded to a post, just
within the past month or so, just to share nothing more than 'cross
posting removed'. It is not helpful if people do not respond to Fred's
post to comment about the orginal post's contents. *shrug*
I don't mind if he removed cross-posting if he replied to share more
info - as some people do. But _just_ to respond to repeat all the
spiel/spam (albeit he did edit the URL - but nothing else} to just add
"cross posting removed"? Crossposting may be abused, no argument
there, but crossposting can be helpful in sharing information between
Sorry, you may find these kind of posts being helpful and informative
