Hey!

I recently started posting to this newsgroup.  I just jumpeded right
in and started hammering out posts and replys, most of which have
sucked me into serious discussion.  Thats my fault I guess, but to
lighten up a little... is there some initiation or something for new
RSTer's?  If not, any ideas?  Any requirements?

Also, who are the RST regulars in the bay area?

Good to be here!

PS...Whats flaming anyway?, and who's good at it in RST?   ;-) <-just
learned that!

For initiation, go to "Team RST" Webpage (I think it is linked to
QR-man's Site) and Register--Easy!  As for Flamming--This is a BAD
habit that as a "newbie" you should NOT Indulge in, let alone learn.
Nobody is "Good" at flaming, and by and large, RST is known to be a
civil place where opinions are exchanged without fear of overzealous
retribution.

Welcome to the Monkey House!

I can't believe this. It comes up again and again. I can never convince
Larry to put it in the FAQ, so I have to post it:

To be an official 'Posting Member' of rec.sport.triathlon (from here
forward known as 'RST'), you must first submit your credit card number
(Visa, MasterCard ONLY), along with your date of birth and mother's
maiden name directly to me (you can just email reply to this post if you
so desire). Please also state why you think you should be allowed to
post, and what perceived value you can add to RST. I can only process
applications once a week or so, so do not worry if I don't get back to
you immediately. If you note any strange charges on you card, do not
worry, I need to verify that you have credit.

Also, as it happens, I live in the Bay Area. Email me for enlightened
conversation and/or the desire for a new training partner.

p.s. I think I can flame with the best of them. But I save it for really
special occasions only. ;-)

Don't register!  If you register, then THEY will know where you live!  They
might enter you in a contest without prizes, cut off your net feed and ship
you to New Zealand, or make you listen to Cake!  You wouldn't want that,
would you?  Unless, you are one of THEM ... you're not, are you?

Actually, it is quite possible to become skilled (***ed?) enough flaming
to make someone feel like a complete idiot and receive numerous e-mails that
practically glow with praise.  Of course, the e-mail usually praises your
own glowering idiocy, but as I've always said, "never skip a chance to make
a complete fool of yourself."

Quite right, my good sir.  Could you pass the Grey Poupon, please?
