I don't know about your phone or contract but your choice of
Subject just put you in my Kill File.
Adios!

I suspect you get killfiled so often the subject makes you a bit touchy,
huh, Elmo?

I think he was expressing hisdispleasure at the four-letter word in the
subject line, which, frankly, I agree was unnecessary. It didn't stop me
from attempting to help the OP, but he (the OP) certainly could've got
his point across less colorfully in a public forum.

Not only would more appropriate language might not have discouraged some
people from assisting, but a more descriptive subject might well have
attracted more assistance; e.g., "Does adding line extend contract by 24
months?"

Just what did Elmo have to say? I think he's been in my kill file a long time.
I'm sure it was nothing constructive. I've never seen him really Help anyone.
Usually a bunch of meaningless words.

1) Not just men read these newsgroups.

2) Most people consider the group they are speaking too and adjust
their vocabulary accordingly. When I am in the locker room with the
girls after a round of golf you should hear what we say. When I am in
public I speak in a way that I hope will earn me the respect of those
around me.

3) You sir are an idiot.

Personally, I'm not offended- it takes a lot more than a "taboo" word in
print to offend me. However, since this is a public forum, the
sensibilities of the readers at large need to be considered.

I understand. I've dropped the f-bomb occasionally when posting on usenet,
but never in the subject! ;-)

Agreed. Expressing displeasure at the content of a post would be more
constructive than a public "plonking."

In my experience, very few people who announce additions to their
killfiles seem to actually use one!

I believe I showed you all the respect you are entitled to, and
probably a lot more.

Mary, you are 100% correct. The OP is a jerk.
