My bad. I meant amongst the names prior to Ewik's and Timmy's. I've
never seen anything civil from the first bunch of names. It was failure
on my part that I didn't make that distinction.
I know I've seen a few from Timmy that were civil. Certainly a lot more
civil than the mentally-ill Flatti, or the criminally insane Quack.
I also have to admit I've seen a couple or more from Erik. More back
when I first came here than now. But they do exist in the wild.

I let my filters compile my list. I just go in once in awhile to prune
any expired stuff and all of the unnecessary lines. On this machine at
least, my filters are plenty accurate enough to make me happy. The Eee
is getting there.* But it still needs a little tuning.
* Yes, I could have just copied them over. But I thought I'd start
clean and see where it went. The size is already almost 30% of the
one on this desktop, and it took years to build this one. The Eee has
only been building a couple of months or so.
How dare the government intervene to stifle innovation in the computer
industry! That's Microsoft's job, dammit!
