Nor does name calling make you correct. If you can give a legitimate

not a legitimate technical reason) that my system is broken, then do so.
It makes you a jackass.
Oh, I see, you want to try to intimidate me, by into giving up the freedom

of my family and the needs of my business without giving any real technical
There is also no RFC that requires a poster to post test

There's no rulebook for a lot of things in life.

disturbing number of "test" posts to non-test groups, then, please do so.
