  4. Thanks! Your first post locked up my browser... it's kinda one way about
    Usenet being a "text only" medium!

    As previously stated, I apologize. I hit the wrong button.

    Geez, you would think I committed a crime against humanity. If your
    browser's that touchy, I would look at a new one.

    True true... So did anyone actually look at the link? It was a
    convertible Subaru on ebay.

    It's no big deal. I just couldn't see the pics in Microsoft Outlook
    Newsreader.

    Anyway, that is cool. And it's in really good condition...only 50K miles.
    Are you going to put in a bid?

    I had no problem with Thunderbird either. I guess there are some
    "fragile" news readers out there.

  10. Apology accepted, but please remember, Usenet is a TEXT based medium
    where one doesn't attach files or post HTML (as opposed to forums where
    that's appropriate.) Pretty simple concept. It's been that way since the
    get go and I doubt it'll ever change. It's not that certain
    browsers/newsreaders are touchy--they work fine for what they're
    supposed to do: read text! Some groups get downright grumpy if you don't
    "follow the rules!", but folks here are generally fairly polite about
    such missteps... at least once? ;)

    Back to Subies now, ok?

    where does one find the "rules"? I stubled across this on my newsgroup
    listings...

  12. Hi,

    A search for "usenet netiquette" will turn up all kinds of things that
    may interest you, but here's a nice brief one:

    Great, back to Subies. I understand the concepts of Usenet, I simply
    hit the wrong button. Get over it. I would assume that since many
    browsers will interpret the HTML and attached files, that the "standard"
    has been bent before, thus necessitating the need to support such things.

    As paraphrased from the IS world, the breaking of a rule today will
    likely become the standard tomorrow.

  14. Anyone using MSOutlook anything hardly has any grounds to complain
    about people posting stuff that locks up their machine.
