Your moral compass has nothing to do with rules. Freedom of speech does not apply either. Rules do. Plain and simple. Rules of Usenet. Terms Of Service for ANY ISP. Take a second to read yours....

And for the record, his advice was pretty lame most of the time. Any posting in caps is just plain rude. Nobody asked him to leave, if he wants to be a pussy, he can take his ball and go home. That is certainly his right. All he was asked to do was quit being obnoxious. This horse is dead. Let's move on.
