I would very disappointed if I didn't see you there too Carlie. It
wouldn't be the same without you there.
I think this is a brilliant idea. There are so many time's that we go
way off Topic & lately I have felt bad for doing that. This group
really should be a place where people come to get advice and know that
they are going to get that help (if we can more to the point...), not
ending their topic with a blazing row because of a troll or clash of
personalities, and the OP ends up with no news that they should have
got...

I'm not silly enough to think that would end by starting a new group,
because there are **** stirrers every where and sometimes in every
one. The point of the group would be a half way between
anec.health.beaviour with most off topic welcome if relevant
somehow...?

Am I guess in the right direction?
I think that sometimes we trigger off too much, & I think that is a
good reason why to move it to a different home.
The more the merrier I think....I'd be glad to see 99% of us there @
one time or another, for sure;o)
S;o)

Thank you Matthew, that was very thoughtful of you to filter for me. I
don't have to guess too far to imagine what helpful chap wanted, but I
didn't need to read it. It gets boring after so long. You would think
the guy would get the message, but it appears he doesn't.

Not having to worry about that one makes it a very alluring place to
look forward to.

Actually it would keep the idiots away due to it will be a restricted group
by invitation only and it has adult restrictions so we can be ourselves in
there. Yes we would have problems between members if there is problems but
that is life. But anyone that comes and causes a problem such as a troll
bye bye

It would be a way from the problems of the open group on the internet. A
few others have done this on yahoo. It is a way for us "friends" out here
to be ourselves

I don't like the concept. I want unfiltered access to whatever gets
posted. If it doesn't interest me, I don't read it, but I want that to
be my decision and nobody else's.

They did started a private group on another usenet group -- I decided
not to join but kept getting these notices. Seems that they had a few
people on the group all of the time but ran out of things to talk about.
I think they thought it was fun at first, then it got boring. They
didn't have the new flavors coming in or new people with new situations.

Yeah, I got the email and checked it out. I don't quite understand what
need being addressed, other than to exclude a single individual who
apparently has really gotten to some of you. Too bad, I say... just
ignore the guy, or else play his game and have fun with it.

Also, I tend to agree with Rhonda. Groups become stagnant without fresh
blood. This group was getting that way, and then all of a sudden bookie
and sheelagh blew in the door... they really livened things up.

But, it's up to each individual to do what he/she wants. Good luck with
the new group.

No Charlie you got a little wrong ;-) we are still going to be here it is
just a place for many of us to get a little closer to have fun with other
things with out having to deal with the idiots. I still love coming to the
group despite the idiots the fresh blood makes it interesting but to be able
to go somewhere without them makes it a little taste of paradise

Barry *is* the current village idiot.

So there we go, a disagreement on exactly WHO the idiots are in here...
so basically one set of idiots decides to form their own group so they
can enjoy their own idiotic company (as defined by some).

Big deal. They will still be lurking and perhaps posting in here.

Quite honestly Mathew... I'm not looking for an invitation, particularly
if I'm not going to be able to express my opinion.

As far as I can see, the signal-to-noise ratio out of Barry is far to
high. I'll ask you this... when was the last time Barry posted anything
useful in the group, without the accompanying attitude, with respect to
the care & feeding of felines?

I haven't received an invitation, hurrah!!! I am too subversive for
people!!! that makes me smile.

anyway, outgrouping causes ingrouping, or something

also i liek the 'idiots' they amuse me with they utter ****ed-up-ness,
the fact that there is this chap called nick or something who is
actually expending lots of energy stalking and annoying people for
some reason, maybe he has nothing else in his life I don't really
know. He probably doesn't actually have any cats, or interest in them,
but he is so friendless that he has to come on to a usenet group to
talk to people but because he has no social skills he doesn't really
know how to make friends in the normal way (ie being nice)
It is kind of like the kid in the school playground who has poor
communication skills and no friends and the only way he thinks he can
get people to talk to him or notice him is to group and punch them or
steal their bags or something and instead of getting friend he just
gets enemies because really all he does is **** people off and push
them away, but he doesn't understand why because he is too socially
immature.

i just find people like that intriguing, i like to poke them and see
what they will do next , cruel i know but it amuses me. To be honest
they are too far below me in the food chain to really care abuot they
say, most of it is for effect or attention, they are just so
irrelevant inthe grand scheme of things to really let them get to me
or really annoy me. Isn't that incredibly pompous? I feel the same
about some of the kids i teach at times, particualrly one kid today
who was complaining that i was shouting at him just cos he was
annoying me and I had to laugh and tell him that he was not annoying
me at all, he was not important enough in the world to be able to
annoy me, that instead he had amused me momentarily with his sad
behaviour. He was rather subdued after that, maybe i made him realise
that he wasn't the centre of my world after all.

also we don't have people like barry in our country, or at least i do
not encounter them anyway, so he is amusing too, quite a card in fact.

and then there are the arseholes who talk about delawing their cats
and they are useful for when i have had a bad day and just want to let
rip at someone pathetic and let them have my anger with both barrels.
i suppose everyone has their place in society somewhere, i woudl hope
that mine woudl be in the middle of a big pile of sleeping kittens

I wish that I could say the same thing Bookie. I can't stand the
bloody idiot, & the more I tell him to [email protected] off, he seems to inhale
deeply & savour the aroma so that it infuses him with the pompous ass
fool notion that I care one fig about his abnormal lifestyle. It
doesn't matter how many times I tell him that he really is revolting,
the more I see/hear of him from him. UGHHHHH!

If I could find something even remotely human about him, I would tell
him to seek help for his unhealthy tastes in [email protected] up other people's
lives... but he is deaf to anything, except, When you even mention the
creep. So for me, Matthews party room is a nice escapade away from
the tedium of his ceaseless overtures & whining childlike overtures,
in which he see-saws between calling me a [email protected] [email protected], to
telling everyone that I love him & can't resist him(ROFLMAO)...some
hope, LOL!!
Never in a million years would I consider him harmless though. I am
just waiting for the fool to trip up on his rented tuxedo currently.
Village Idiot??
Don't you mean GLOBAL IDIOT..????????

> not encounter them anyway, so he is amusing too, quite a card in fact.

This in fact is very True, LOL..
He certainly is unique & god broke the mould when he made him;o)
I think he is hilarious & rather sweet really. He speaks as he finds,
& even though we did start on a rocky outcrop, we made friends & I
have never regretted it @ alI & couldn't care less if anyone choose
to kill file for that reason alone. He has never hurt me, & I see no
reason to either dislike him, or appear to for fear of what others
might think because of that reason.

I also know that this [email protected]'s Roof bunny no end & I enjoy taking his
attention away from Nicko the sicko(aka Nick De Prick) depending on
how you feel @ any given moment...hahaha >"o"<

Anyway, I thought you would be up for it sometimes?
It would be rather nice to go in there and let rip occasionally
without the guilt of feeling that you have inflicted your opinion just
a TAD Too Much...I know that I do, but only when someone antagonises
me to snapping point.....
Speak later mate.....

My kittens are coming home tomorrow because their grandma is going
into hospital to have her hip replaced the day after, so I have got to
bring the kittens home and Tahnee( foster milk nanny/mummy) & her two
kittens too..It is going to be a full house here for the next couple
of weeks.

I have worked out arrangements for them all & where they will reside
too. All of ours are going to be living downstairs or outside in the
pens whilst we have good weather, Tahnee & the kittens will be staying
upstairs, & both Taz & Biffy are out in the pens, as is Sofie the Bi-
Colour Ragdoll, and Lucy(fur!) too....

A very busy time indeed. I'm keeping Ringo downstairs with our indoor
girls.

The kittens have grown so much!! I MUST get a camera from somewhere to
take photos of Spicy Ringo, Belle and Lilly N Tig's, & all of the
baby's, including the Birman kittens and their dark tortie sister &
their tabby brother..It is going to be hard work for a few weeks, but
I am certain that it will go fine. It always does if your chucked in @
the deep end..it is only when you look back @ it, that you think,"well
how the hell did we get through that one"..?

All in a good cause, LOL

Probably hiding in the same place as my skimpy underwear, @ the bottom
of the wardrobe in the unique section lol...BTW, talking about grapes,
I wonder whether you have any idea how much they cost over here?
They are 298per LB...
Matthew, that is near as damned it $6 a Lb (500grams!!)

Terrible, isn't it?
Time to get Bookie's invite off again, then she can consider the
Gobbing Off society, lol;o)

Check your kitchen, man. And be glad you're a batchelor. (And you
better have presents, those girls were promised presents ...)

You have neatly summed up the paradox you now face, Sheelagh. On the one
hand, you are bothered by the fact that this guy thinks you actually care
about what he says. But on the other hand, you are validating his sense
of empowerment when you offer a strongly emotional response to his
taunts. And, indeed, he does savor it. It's what he wants and hopes
for. So why do you continue to reward him?

I don't think this character is particularly malevolent. He will never
spring from the back seat of your car when you are leaving a parking
lot. He's not making threats, or at least he's not making credible
threats, and he's not researching you so he can post private information
about you. He's just a smart-ass, only as troublesome as you allow him
to be.

Interesting that she spends so much time prattling on and on about
someone she professes to hate, don't you think? Almost as if she's
obsessed...

Aside: BTW, my dear British bonehead, posting in Matthew's little
hiding place from the terrors of the big bad world does not give your
posts an invisibility cloak.

"I hoped after my last performance with him , in which I was
threatening to jump into the void if he didn't leave me by, had
worked... "

LOFL! So you're a moron *and* a liar?

"I never did find a way to KF him..."

Correct, a bandied fed up worn out LIAR to be precise if you
please..!!
Actually, you know what Nick..?

I really couldn't care less what you have to say anymore. Charlie is
right in what he had to say. you are not going to land on my door
step, I will never meet you, & if it gives you a cheap thrill to
expose me as a LIAR, please be my guest & go ahead. I'm sure everyone
will rush to your side and say "Hooray, good old Nick", & pet you,
won't they.....?

The only reason I wanted to get away from you is because you are such
a cling on. It doesn't matter where I am, who I am talking to, you
just have to butt in like a petulant child begging attention. I'm sick
of giving it to you; I have 5 petulant children of my own to deal
with, so I don't need another one, & especially not you!

In fact if the truth be known, the only reason you try and make me
look a fool is because I had the outrage to agree with some of Barry's
posts.. & you so "Hate him" for making you look like a prize peach
every single time..

I don't even feel angry with you or afraid anymore. I don't feel the
need to be protected from you anymore, & I am devoid of all emotion
when I see you now which is quite a relief now that I reflect upon it.
Go, sing your own praises, hold me aloft and name and shame me..I
couldn't care less. Charlie is correct in every word he Say's there.

I used to feel repulsed and afraid of you, but things change and so
have I. I don't feel the need to be protected from you, because all
you really are is a bully boy. The difference being that I am no
longer afraid of you...it's a wonderful feeling to be set free. Only I
could do it though. With all the best intentions in the world, no one
could do that for me. I had to do it myself. Mind you, I would like to
thank Charlie for writing it in black and white for me to consider
though. Thanks Charlie..I would never have made a good troll even if I
had tried to be one. I might be loud and opinionated, but that's as
far as I go.......
You have no hold over me anymore. To matter to me, I would have to
feel @ least some emotion, but I don't. so it looks like you have
inadvertently set me free Nick.
THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE IT....

I had to think about this one for a while Charlie. I had to question
myself and accept what you were telling me was the truth. The reason I
empowered him was because I couldn't see that I was doing all of this,
to myself. I put shadows where there weren't any & I fled when I felt
him approaching.....

WHY?
I saw more threat than there ever was I guess....
It wasn't until I read both of your posts together that I managed to
see the contrast in front of my own eye's..Your right, he will never
be anyone to me, there is no reason for the irrational fears that will
never materialise.
Straight after reading your post, I got the chance to see Nick for
what he really is. A big bully boy. Simple.. the sort of person that I
encourage my own kids to be a better person than. well the time has
come for me to take my own advice & be truthful. I feel ridiculous
really, but a much happier person all the same though. I no longer
fear him, so his grip on me has gone...It's wonderful. I feel free to
be me again.

I know that you are spot on here because I can see it now. He has no
hold over me @ all anymore. I don't think his rantings will ever
bother me again, because to care, you have to feel, & I no longer feel
anything about him - not even anger. It was my fault for allowing him
to act this way towards me. I can see that I was encouraging him now..
but no more, ever again.....
Thank you Charlie

I have so many question I do not know where to start....
what is it you get out of harrasing people?
did you have any friends when you were younger?
did you find it difficult to make friends? is this still the case?
do you feel unhappy when you think you are being ignored by people?
do you have any close family and do you currently live with them?
do you enjoy ****ing people off?
do you understand the negative feelings you inspire in other people?
if so what do you think about that?

i am just interested to know whether you are actually aware that you
and your attentions are not wanted by some people, and also whether
you understand what feelign 'upset' is and that other people can feel
'upset' inthe same way that you must do occasionally.

do you think that people are just joking when they tell you to 'get
lost'? how do you feel about that?
do you feel that even negative responses to your behaviour are better
than no responses at all from other people?
do you feel lonely?
do you have people aronud you with whom you can talk to face to face?
do you actually live with anyone?
do you have a job of any kind (this can include unpaid and voluntary
work)?
has there ever been any history of autism or aspergers syndrome in
your family before?

also why do you like to make statements that an individual (in this
case sheelagh, but I am sure there have been others) 'love you'? do
you really believe this is the case or is it just a behaviour designed
to produce some sort of reaction (even a negative one) from another
person?

this is all very interesting, any responses to these questions would
be interesting and may prove helpful even for yourself if they enable
you to achieve some sort of awareness of your situation and perhaps
give you the impetus to change. Also what kind of medication are you
on a present?
thanks in advance

Those are certainly probing questions, and I have to tell you that
they put me in a contemplative, introspective mood for most of the
day.

I am sure that with some effort and encouragement, I can become a
totally changed person by breakfasttime. Lunch at the latest.

I'm more than certain that he is excellent with Children. Charlie is
also the self professed God of Troll, so he offered a very good
insight as to how a Troll feels & feeds when it's victim posts. An
awareness that any non Troll wouldn't be aware of . Therefore it was
as helpful as anyone could possibly be to a victim of one.
Had he not posted that passage, I could very possibly still be sitting
here seething away because of one single person's manipulation.

Some people naturally are defensive & introvert, where others are
happy to wear their heart on their sleeve's, we are all different from
each other.
In posting that passage, Charlie gave me the insight I needed to rid
myself of that fear.

I don't think for one moment that Bookie has the slightest interest in
what Nick thinks, or more to the point, what he doesn't think. This
passage of her own, was to make it clear to Nick that what he was
doing is not normal behaviour. And whilst It would probably make her
smile to read it, the only reason that she posted that was to make it
as clear as possible to him that what he was doing was not normal
behaviour.
Nick admitted as much when he said it made him introspective.
I am not stupid enough to think this will stop him, but what will
change is my response to him, because he doesn't matter anymore.

You might find this mildly childishly amusing, but not everyone else
feels the same way as you do.

My point is that We might not have been in the group that long, but
that doesn't mean that you have a right to ridicule us. In fact, all
the more reason to support us. You do when it is Barry, the same as we
do, so why not us?

There was nothing funny about it (@ the time...), I assure you.

Nevertheless, it was the catalyst that ended the persecution, so I
suppose that the laugh and the **** take really, was reflected @ you.

I never intended to hide my posts. What do you take me for? The
gibbering idiot you tried to manipulate me into? Anymore than I
thought you wouldn't read the posts I made that you quoted me from.
So what? You were a bully! Now you are a non entity...
>From now on,. I am looking forward to watching you from a completely
different point of view. One where I can observe rather than react to.

I'm so pleased that Bookie made you introspective. Possibly it was the
reality check you needed.( not that I think you will ever change, you
just won't affect me in any way @ all)..Now, I find you boring. You
cover the same old ground, & reveal the same old thing. It's history,
get over it & move on..!!

No. I have no children and I lack the patience and enthusiasm to deal
with them. The best that can be said is that I am tolerant of children.

Hardly. That would imply some kind of paramount success, which is not
possible, or at least I have never seen it. "Trolling" is a game with
limited scope for improvement and expertise, which is why I eventually
tired of it.

I had a lot of fun... for example, I insisted that the Apollo Lunar
program was a giant hoax, filmed in the desert. Apparently there are
people who really do believe that. I got a cheap thrill out of knowing
that I was costing the U.S. gov't money in the form of JPL scientists who
responded ardently, and voluminously, to silly arguments I concocted on
the fly. But, I can only play the same game so many times before it
becomes predictable and boring.

Well, darling Sheelagh, do you see the contradiction in this analysis?
If Bookie wants to straighten out this guy's thinking, then obviously she
does care on some level. You and she can't have it both ways.

Oh come on. Do you want pity? You don't need it. You're socially
plugged in and you have a stable and supportive family. Nothing this guy
can say to you will change your life very much.

When this character first showed up, I was inclined, along with everyone
else, to tell him to get lost. But the longer this goes on, with people
responding to him in copious detail, trying to sleuth out his identity,
trying to set him straight on what a prick he is etc. etc., the more I
begin to think of him as just one of the regulars, with his own, self-
defined niche in the ecosystem of this group. Welcome "Nick Andrews."
Have at 'em. They can't control themselves, so why the hell should you?

not actually a ****take i am quet interested in what makes you so
dysfunctional and why you feel the need to stalk people and hwat
motivates you. what are the positive reinforcers that m,ake you keep
comign back for more? do you misread or misunderstand what people are
trying to tell you when they say "**** off you are a ******" and
"leave me alone" and other similar things? i am wonmdering whether
youhave some kind of bizarre kind of communication disorder or cannot
read cretain social signals as most people can do. This often happens
with people with Asperger's syndrome, in fact it is pretty much
universal with them and can cause them great unhappiness as they can
feel very isolated as they are unable to pick up subtle social cues
and non-verbal communications which can be very important in leading a
normal life and gettign along with others.

your response that my questions are a '****take' is very interesting
too, tell me why you think i might be taking 'the ****'? what makes
you say that? is it denial possibly that you may have a problem? or
do you honestly not understand the questions and the sentiment behind
them?

also have you actually left your house today and interacted with any
other human being on a face-to-face basis?

thanks in advance, Bookie

that's ok, oscar wilde once said ti was better to laughed at than
ignored, maybe it is also better to be killfiled than ignored cos at
least that way my presence and my actions have caused some reaction in
someone somewhere. ok maybe not, but anything is better than being
ignored...ain't that right Nick? isnt; that why you do this?

actually i am kind of interested in what makes Nick 'tick' or rather
'tock', my background in is psychology, albeit cognitive and
neuropsych instead of clinical , but I still find that rae very
inetresting. also having taught a couple of autistic and aspergers
kids i find that whole area quite intriguing as they too have real
problems with social interaction and communication. i often wonder
what the kids will be liek when they grow up, whethet they will turn
into someone like nick who finds it hard to read certain signals and
regards any interaction or attention from other peolpe (even negative
stuff) as a good thing.

also i am guaranteeing that he will not ever try to stalk me, think
about it....

i don't actually care about the guy at all, i have very little
sympathy for humans at all, actually couldn't give a **** about humans
and their welfare inthe slightest, but i am interested in the way
humans thinks and work mentally thats all. but only fleetingly, when
i tune in to this group, i mean thinking about him doesn't keep me
awake at night, i have many other things in my life to do that and
other **** to worry about.

such as why jessie insists on sleeping on all my dark rowing training
kit in a box onthe floor, it is always covered inher white hairs.

also why do I have this niggling pain inthe centre of my back, is it
an injury or just aching muscles from training this morning?

also whether i shoudl really make an effort to try and rehome terri
the tortie or keep her with me and hope that jessie with accept her in
time.

believe me I couldn't give 2 ****s about someone liek this nick bloke,
can't believe sheelagh doesn't just go "whatever" whenever he contacts
her and block his emails, she has much more to worry about that him

You are conflating the real world with Usenet, Bookie-poo. The mentally
handicapped kids are either oblivious to social cues, or else they
misread them. On Usenet, the social cues are mostly absent -- as are the
negative consequences of socially bad behavior. All we have are strings
of ASCII characters, and maybe links to pictures on the web. "Nick" can
drop in here for a bit of amusement once or twice a day, amusing himself
at your expense with no social consequences whatsoever. Nobody is gonna'
fire him from his job because he's a jerk on Usenet. Nobody is gonna
punch him in the face because of something he says to you or Sheelagh.

People in this group are spending a lot of time trying to figure him out,
whereas he spends only a few minutes tossing out replies that are hollow
and effortless. And that's the payoff for a troll -- a sense of being a
puppet-master, above the fray, looking down with wry amusement whilst the
little people scurry about with their egos and emotions in disarray.

You are an educated woman. You should fully understand all of this
without needing anyone to spell it out for you. Which makes me wonder if
"Nick" is the only troll in this group. Maybe I'm falling for a troll
act perpetrated by YOU and your voluble cohort Sheelagh. If that's the
case, you better fess up because I'm right at the point where I might
have to kill myself instead of typing another lengthy explanation like
this one. You don't want my innocent, naive blood on your hands, do you?

Yeah, your right. This **** isn't worth the typing Bookie.
You will never understand him because your not twisted in the head. I
think if you want to understand what makes him tock, you would have to
go down to his level, & I assure you that it's not worth the bloody
hassle he causes

**** him off!!

Ha, We noticed, LOL....
I'm not too sure about the Bookie-pooh bit, but I can tell you that
neither of us fear this moron devoid of social function & abnormally
defunct social character...

Does this mean that we can stop talking about the creep yet? Frankly I
am getting bored with all this & would prefer to ignore him, which is
a little difficult when the people we identify most with, won't let
the subject drop..

Only if you allow them to Charlie. I remember you telling me this
distinctly. If you don't talk bout him, then as far as we are
concerned it wouldn't be too much hard work, & there would be no
problem to analyse, would there?
It's reasonably easy to avoid people here, & even easier to ignore
them if allowed to...

Well Voluble Sheelagh is ROFLOL right now. How could you think that an
innocent pair of fair English maidens would even consider the
possibility?

And No, I would rather not have your blood on my, or Bookie's hands...
But can we just drop the whole asshole analyse act now, cuz I'm done
with him. I simply wanted to set the record straight & explain that
what you see as normal, is not quite the same thing as what "we" would
consider Normal. Do you see my point yet?

Because he is an out & out freak who gets off on manipulating others
simply because he "can get away with it here". Over here he is what we
would refer to as an antisocial dickhead who should have an ASBO
slapped on him to stop him using the net. A true case of a CHAV in
action..For the benefit of our American friends, I will explain what
these mean, because they obviously don't have them, otherwise they
would recognise them. I was hoping for help with that rather than
fending the prick off...

And I know that you simply don't understand what makes him this way,
because I felt the same way too. Now, my eye's are open & I do....

An ASBO is an antisocial behaviour order. It is handed down by the
courts here to scruff ****s by the neck & try & straighten the savable
ones out. It can have any constraints that the bench feel are
necessary to stop the bloody idiot doing whatever it is that is
getting up other peoples noses..or, affecting other people. Everyone
has a right to their normal life here & others Have To RESPECT that.
If they don't, then constraints are handed down & f they don't comply
with the court ruling, they breach their rights & go straight to jail
without passing Go....

A CHAV is a new word, but if you look it up in the Oxford Concise, you
will find it there. It is one of those slang words that has actually
made it in to the English language for the foreseeable future. I had
to check this one out with the kids before I posted because I wanted
to be certain I was telling you the true meaning of the word.
It stands for: Council House, And Violence- Generally these
individuals leave school with no exam's, never work, come from
backgrounds where the parents don't work & the family outlook in life
is how to con the benefits system & never aspire to any normal sort of
life. Violence & rudeness are their trademarks & they never own their
own home because it is considered as not important. It doesn't have to
be physical violence,... INTIMIDATION is their first rule, & the rest
follows in time....

So that is why we don't understand the concept of a troll. We have
never had to before. It is new to us & we would appreciate if you were
kind enough to point out the things that you have recently explained.
How would we ever find out otherwise? We depend on your understanding
& explanations, as you do us in different ways...
I hope I have been of some help to you.

Does the phrase "Attention Vampire" mean anything to you?

Some people have so little going on in their lives that the
only attention *anybody* pays them is when they get a reaction
to something lame and/or annoying that they post online somewhere.

The stake thru the heart for these individuals is to simply
ignore whatever drivel they post, no matter what your initial
reaction is....

The concept of ASBO probably wouldn't go too far here in the colonies.
That pesky constitutional thing pretty much gives anyone the right

the courts if someone gets *too* nasty towards a person, but it's

As far as "CHAV"s, we have cities full of millions of them that
are busy breeding legions of future inmates. We just have different
names for them...

ROFLOL.....
I see someone has a sense of humour here..

I shall certainly bare this all in mind every time that I post from
now on..
It's nice when people explain things from a different point of view...
I can't believe people go as far as that, but hey, how sad to have a
life where other things are less important than posting on
Usenet...what a mad world we live in..!!
<LOL>

Some people have so little going on in their lives that the only
attention *anybody* pays them is when their cats mark them as objects
in their territory.

They then desperately mistake this for love and attention obviously
lacking in their lives, and then go off to Usenet to share the news
with like-minded pathetic wallflowers.

i thinkn you call 'chavs' by 'trailer trash' is that correct? same
kind of thing really, same useful blood sucking scum who will never
really contribute anything to society and will always expect to be
provided for as though the world owes them a living, usually thick as
pig ****, the females tend to get pregnant by the time they are 15 or
16 (this helps them to go to the top of the list for council provided
housing and gets them more benefits from the state) males spend their
days avoiding work of any sort and dabbling in petty crime.

Based on representation in this NG, British women seem to be more than

"trailer trash" is generally the rural version.

There's plenty of those too.

They are available in all levels of pigmentation.

BTW, You probably meant "useless" rather than "useful", no?

Come on Bookie & Sheelagh! I don't post often, but we're supposed to be
adults here discussing our cats. Just ignore the posts from those you don't
want to read, or better yet, killfile them. Don't keep responding - you must
know the saying " don't feed the trolls! "

Anyway I'd much rather hear about Ringo or Tortle & I'd be happy to give all
kinds of stories about my troublemaker Little Devil.

I agree with you entirely there.
<Huge great fly swatter aimed @ nuisance mosquito...SPLAT, problem
gone>

Anyway, as I was saying, Lilly is delighted that she managed to slip
past me & flew upstairs to see what all the action & commotion was up
there...& to her utter shock, there were little fluffy pom poms
scraping on the other side of the gate. She couldn't reach them, but
she sure took plenty of time to study them.. Ringo couldn't care less
<phht kittens!!>

& Belle can't even be bothered to look @ them. Tiggy has been kept
away from them & Tahnee's is soooo laid back that she couldn't care
less if someone wants to play with them. Inevitably, Tilly (10) is
taking a huge interest & has spent every spare moment with them, much
to Lucy(fur's!) disgust..... Lucy(fur!) is moping on Tilly's bed
feeling utterly abandoned & unloved, so I have just sent Tilly up
there with a few slices of chicken roll to tickle her interest. There
is nothing like a nice treat to get Lucy on side:o)
Lilly can't be peeled away from the gate @ the top of the stairs, not
even for a slice of yummy favourites You can see her observing them &
occasionally the old bum wiggles as though she is getting ready to
pounce on one & play with him/her..then looks @ me and decides that
maybe she who must be obeyed, might not think it is as funny as she
does.
<Poor Deprived Kitty, hey?>

Our letter has gone off to the planing department @ the council, to
ask if we might extend the back of the house and fit a pergola, come
cat run with shelter, because it is going to have footings which is
why we have to ask if we can build it. It also gives the neighbors a
chance to say no they don't want us to- but I can't see that being a
problem with it. all those idea's that everyone came up with have been
studied silly & now we have a plan of how we want it to be, which we
had to submit to the planning dept It is only about 12 x 12, so not
too big, but plenty of room for the cats to get a bit of fresh air &
for us to leave the patio door open in the summer...
The kittens thought that the cat pen was a speacial treat yesterday &
wailed with woe when we brought them back in again. It didn't take
that long to get them interested in the divan draw again where it was
nice, warm & comfy. I went back 20 Min's later, & the had
Gone...Aaagh...!!

<Mass panic again & headless chicken routine>

I found them half an hour later in the airing cupboard where Tahnee
was sitting on top of the hot water pipes, keeping her rump warm &
feeding the kittens reluctantly. I notice that she is pushing them
further away each day. She doesn't mind about 3 feeds, but I think she
feels it is time that they got used to solid food. Presently, I am
mixing a spoon of cimi cat formula kitty milk with warm water &
whiskers super kitty meat, which they seem to approve of. I just put
it on a baking sheet & let them help themselves to it..& they do, with
all four paws tromping in it. They seem to have as much fun clearing
up after themselves than they do eating in the 1st place. I guess that
is a social bonding thing. It's a bit strange looking @ a little
tortie cleaning Colour points whiskers & face, & a tabby cleaning a
Bi-Colour too, but they are all bonded & have started litter training
Very successfully. 1 of them keeps falling asleep in the litter. It's
like mummy has said "you can sit on there till you do go, hear me my
girl?!!
<lol & Grin @ the thought of it>

Noooooo;o( I want to cry because I haven't got one presently. My
little darling lad took mine to a Trivium [email protected] the corn Exchange &
now it won't focus properly....
<itchy hands leading towards Ross's throat>

I keep threatening to try & find one, but haven't done so, so far. I
don't know who to ask really. I've got one of those poxy throw away
camera's and a few photos taken on my mobile phone that I have managed
to get Kodak to convert to photos that you can upload, so I will make
a little folder of them & stick it on here in a few minutes If poss,

That's how Hailey sees it, too--he purrs when he sees me with the brush
(well he purrs whenever he sees me so probably the presence of the brush
doesn't make a difference!) but then bites it if it gets anywhere near his
ample rump, still purring madly. Sigh. And he does have long fine hair
that should be brushed alot more than it does.

Whoops! sorry for the mix-up - I enjoy reading your posts & felt badly for
you reading about your recent experiences. I know I've looked at pictures of
bookie's cats & must have confused who belonged to who. I'm really busy today
with some huge non-cat problems, but will post later tonight about my bundle
of trouble Little Devil, but I do love him, regardless of what he does. I did
sort-of introduce myself & my cats a couple weeks ago, but I'll do it again
later. There's lots of pictures of my cats on webshots - Coco & Little Devil

HAHAHA...Bonnie....

It's our lucky day (and mine too)...I don't have a camera, but I do
have a mobile phone(cell phone) which I took a few photos of them
with. then sent them to Kodak & got them to send them back to me again
so we have a few photos of the kitty's no. I'm sorry that they are not
brilliant, but the give you a general idea of what they look like

what bunch of cuties! i love their big blue innocent eyes,
irresistable! i think evolution designed those inorder to maek them
more appealing and irresistable as a way of ensuring they survived
(sod 'survival of the fittest' this is 'survival of the cutest').
makes sense really as beign cute and adorable ensures that mum will
love and care for her little kitties and they will survive, also
ensures that should such a kitten be abandoned and fond by a human it
increases the chances that said human will look into those big bloue
eyes and fluffy and fall under the spell and also take care of little
kitty puss, hence they survive.

really they made you use a bedpan when you were in there? rather
archaic, i would have thought that they would have allowed the inmates
to use actual toilets

We have only had them home for a few days and they are creating
bedlam. I loose them roughly 20 times a day & have near heart attacks
even more often, LOL..
They are rather cute, & yes I am going to find it hard to let them go,
but now that I have chosen each slave, it's not so bad because I know
that I can go & see them when ever we wish to. Paddy is going to the
family who lost their cat wizard. Panda is going to my daughter, & the
other two are going to local families too.
Panda is the quietest reposed kitty, Popz is the naughty pants &
partner in crime with paddy & one of Tahnee's kittens. And Pinky is
the sneaky one that thinks you don't notice when he is tearing up your
legs to get to that soft well padded lap(in my case, LOL)...
It's nice to enjoy them for a few weeks until they moved on though,
S:o)
