This guy has been spamming all the newsgroups with this. Shouldn't
moderated groups be safe from this kind of thing?

But I guess since PAT is oblivious to Usenet, he wouldn't know this.
But surely the fact that it was posted in ALL CAPS should trigger a bozo

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You answered your own question regards
Usenet newsgroups, for which I thank you. And Barry, not everyone on
the net is as smart and sophisticated as yourself, but that, of
neccessity does not qualify the person as a 'bozo'. If the person had
used a proper and appropriate mixture of upper and lower case letters,
would you then have given any more attention to his message? Or, to
put it another way, since he used all upper case letters, are you now
going to ignore him totally and ship off your computers and other
electronics in need of repair to David Nash? Oh, and by the way,
Barry, this weekend alone I got a couple hundred messages in upper
case letters, but they all were to remind me that my mortgage had
been approved at excellent rates or that Viagra and Ciallis (?) were
available to me over the net at great rates and no adverse results
to my health. I still invite David Nash of Chicago to respond it he
wishes to do so (which I doubt).

But, speaking of Bozo Clowns (yes, I altered Barry's subject line a
little) while this issue of the Digest was being edited, guess what
I received in incoming mail; I knew you would want to see it; since
Mrs. Lewis used a semi-approprite case mixture (although she is
obviously not an English major, I wonder if this lady would be
regarded as (1) a charlatan, (2) a spammer, (3) an honest business
person from the much maligned country of Nigeria (so maligned in
fact that even telco won't accept "collect" calls to/from USA/Nigeria),
or (4) just a general garden variety Bozo?
