    I think there are 2 factors, and I read several other groups that are the
    same way.

    1. Closeknit - people who have known each other a long time.

    2. Sheer volume of posts drowns them out, and they give up.

    Or health care personnel.

    It's also unwise to piss of a cop, or a judge.

    As my Polish uncle used to say.

    In a world of Usenet kooks and absolutely insane Usenet newsgroups, I must
    comment that this one is a breath of fresh air. Yes, there are political
    kooks, but they haven't dominated yet. Maybe because of the simple basic
    nature of the topic.

    Food.

    Cooking.

    Doesn't get any simpler than that.

    Who can argue politics with the cook? Not smart at all.

    Two people you NEVER EVER want to piss off. The cook or the barber.

    Bad tempered/ill humoured judges should not have the right to hand down
    decisions/sentences.

    I don't think he liked me talking to him 'one-on-one' without having the
    legal parasites involved. And I don't think he liked my comment of
    "Ohhhh, **** off...... do you really believe that ****??!!" when he was
    reading some of his ****e out.

    Ahhhh well........ hopefully, he learned something that day.

    I think he just got pissed off because I was questioning *him*.

    if you're old enough to speak the mohel in the first place, you got a whole
    other set of problems.

    (i guess you could piss him off by peeing on him, but i would gather
    they're used to that.)

    Somehow reminds me of an ex-brother-in-law. He was in the military, and
    was away from home more often than not...

    Anyway, he came home for one of his 'flying visits' the whole family was
    sitting around the dinner table; his Mom had laid on a 'feast' in his
    honour... He had just thanked her profusely and went on about how nice
    it was to have a wonderful home-cooked meal again etc., then without
    thinking he said, "Please pass the f**king butter." There was a shocked
    silence for about 20 seconds before most of us burst out laughing. His
    Mom was not all that impressed though... <grin>

    Recently, I had to go to court. For the third time, after the prosecution
    had failed to find the "evidence". When asked by the judge what I pled, I
    made a motion to dismiss because of prosecution's inability to produce
    discovery and evidence, and cited him number and verse from state law. He
    looked at me for about five seconds, looked at the prosecutor, banged his
    gavel, and said "Case Dismissed".

    But I sure as hell hope I don't ever have to meet the man again in court.
    He was fuming under his robe, but he knew I was right.
