I just wanted to tell you that I agree with some of what you say. This
newsgroup is similar to a pool hall in many ways. You can make a few
friends here. You can learn some things here. You can even do a little
teaching here if your instruction can stand a bit of scrutiny. RSB is
covered by people from all walks of like with personalities from ***holes
to some of the finest people you will ever meet anywhere. Their intellect
runs the full gamut, from the town fool to academia's elite. All are
There are some here who would rather criticize others than eat ice cream.
That is the price you pay for public scrutiny. At least in a pool hall you
can choose who hears your conversation. Here everyone listens/reads. If
you want to learn, try to get along. If you can't get along, get it on.
There are many who would enjoy a word tango with you. FTR, I don't enjoy
sticking needles in people unless I get stuck. I haven't gone to the
trouble of finding out how others are criticizing you, but stay around a
while and learn some of the *** social skills needed to relate. They are
not much different than the ones you learn in your local pool hall.
There is PLENTY of good information available to you about pool in this
newsgroup. RSB is the place for knowledge. Just beware that if you desire
to fight with words, there are some world champions on this newsgroup. I
myself, prefer the table to do my fighting. See you at the table.

Chill, my man and enjoy.
