Hmmm ... never seen a stupid, incompetent person driving a Mercedes
Benz?  Or a Corvette?  A Ferrari ...

That's way too specialized a posting history to be natural.  The
preponderance of <5 posts in a year to a group entries indicates
that you are using this sockpuppet to backup others that you
employ mostly on those groups.

Bet you post 290 time every couple of _days_ using various of
your kindergarden sockpuppets.

Nothing to complain about. "digitalmaster" can't even get an
article into my newsreader, with a hundred sockpuppets at his

He's hardly a threat.

In fact, his threat rating is so low that I don't even have to
read his articles.


"Trace?" No need. See above comments.

I trust that you are having fun talking to your own sockpuppets,

Although I'd bet that you bore even them.

Note: I won't be downloading any articles on this thread.


Challenge-Response Systems are the best garbage-mail blockers
in the world. Spammers and trolls can't beat them and you
don't need to be a geek to use them. A brief introduction:

Who is Alan Connor?

Alan Connor is a troll and kook, you be better of just killfile him.

Alan Connor is appearently also trolling on many other newsgroups.

So what is he raving about?

A lot of headers.

In reality, Alan's system is known as a challenge-response or C/R system;
it auto-answers incoming email with a challenge and only lets the email
through if it receives a valid response. There are several problems with
this concept, but Alan doesn't want to hear them. In addition,
Alan's system isn't even a very good implementation of the C/R concept,
as it fails to address the chicken-egg problem that is inherent to C/R:
What if your C/R system sends a challenge to an email address that is
also protected by a C/R system? Because of this, Alan and Timo Salmi,
another C/R advocate, are unable to email eachother. So basically Alan's
system is a broken implementation of a flawed concept.  





Also in the headers for Alan to read.
