You know ... I was trying to be through with this, but I've just seen a
post in the M.P.T.H. group that rekindled my anger and feelings of
devastation. I should really just get rid of my computers and find
something else to do with myself. Jenn and Eagle are killing me! And I'm
letting them do it. I've been acting as badly as they do. I don't want
to fight and have people calling me horrible names.

I have them blocked where I don't have to see them, but I can see the
quotes in other posts.

Eagle is just a pitiful, person. Really nasty! I've never had to deal
with people like him and Jenn ever before. I was having nice
conversations in the alt.2600 group before Jenn spoiled it with her lies.

I don't understand my compulsion to even be on Usenet when I have a
nice, quiet place to talk, where they can't even see me.

Did you see him ask Graham if there shouldn't be consequences for
insulting speech? In other words, calling me a "stoopid old witch" is
okay, but I should never say anything to Jenn or him or BD by way of
defending myself.

I could not believe my eyes. He has made a career of blindsiding other
posters with insults ... people who were not speaking to him. He has
picked on me for years and now he's doing the same as Jenn and trying to
put all of the blame on me! He quoted something I said to Jenn ... not
him ... and then claimed I was insulting him. I don't know what he's
talking about.

I also see that Jenn is pulling her act on Sycho because he's still in
the test group and she hasn't been back to that forum she was *dying* to
join and couldn't because of me. She claims people are jealous of her.
It appears to be the other way around to me. She saw me getting along
with a group she wasn't part of and wanted to steal my thunder. She
succeeded! She keeps saying she stands by her friends, but if anyone
else does that she acts like they are low-lifes, unable to think for
themselves. I do not get it.

It's no wonder that they have all three been banned from other servers.

It's always double standards from them. For the most part, even when poking
Dave with a stick, I've called him by his name, yet he decided to pull the

goat by calling him "iggy"? That's going to be his nic again "soon"! LOL

Adding his own complaint about monkey-boi to Betty's.

Still no hate. Fact, comment and opinion only.

Fact mixed with opinion, and nothing Betty hasn't said before, except for
a slight difference in detail.

No hate. More venting.

Knowing those about whom she's speaking, I'm not surprised.

That I can vouch for . Eagle was never banned from Annex. You must have mixed up BD
or Jenn when you were answering Betty.
As other servers go, I have no idea if he was banned from any of those.

Nothing other people haven't seriously suggested, myself included.

If I knew him in RL, monkey-boi is one of the very few people I wouldn't
turn my back on. I've even told OF this in an email. The guy is a loose
cannon, unpredictable and there's no way of knowing what might set him
off.

The guy is mentally unbalanced, IMO, with *serious* anger mismanagement
issues.

Fuck. I could write a book on this, but I won't.

Sometimes it can be best to just mentally block out whatever they say,

I can shrug off a lot of stuff from Jenn, but that comment from Eagle
was especially hurtful. It hurt really bad. I don't know how long it's
going to take for me to get it out of my head. I don't feel like I
deserved anything close to what he said.

Thanks, OF, but I doubt I could entice anyone here.

Other than Ron, I don't have any friends in those groups. If you mean
the ones from 2600, I don't know them. We were just in the process of
getting acquainted and having nice silly/joking conversations on an
intermittent basis. I don't make instant "friends" like Jenn. Those guys
hang out on Facebook to get away from the Usenet mess. I was sort-of
invited several months back, but I declined. Maybe that was a mistake.

All I wanted was to be away from the hot, cool trio.

One of the advantages of being an old fart is having the advantage of
being able to say - snap out of it young lady :-)

They will only get away with it, if you let them get away with it, but
you don't have to stoop to their level. Hard as it is, just ignore the
worst of it, and pick to whom you actually respond.

Sadly, Usenet can be pretty tough on newcomers, so sometimes you have to
either develop a thicker skin, or look for one of the moderated forums.

Thanks, OF, but I doubt I could entice anyone here.
Other than Ron, I don't have any friends in those groups. If you mean
the ones from 2600, I don't know them. We were just in the process of
getting acquainted and having nice silly/joking conversations on an
intermittent basis. I don't make instant "friends" like Jenn. Those guys
hang out on Facebook to get away from the Usenet mess. I was sort-of
invited several months back, but I declined. Maybe that was a mistake.
All I wanted was to be away from the hot, cool trio.

[G] Sadly, I'm not that young, but thanks for the lecture. I've been at
this for awhile, just never ran into these types. I started out in
sci.crypt and rec.puzzles in the early nineties. Those folks were nice.

Whoops - sorry Betty, I hadn't realised. That probably explains why
your Bratgirl nym looked familiar to me. I was sure I had seen it
around somewhere before.

I started posting around the same time, perhaps 95 or so, but only used
the OF from 98 or 99.

I wasn't on Usenet until a couple of years ago and that was by way of
Jenn, Eagle, and a few others talking about me and something I said on
AnnexCafe. It's a tangled story or I would tell you how it came about.
Anyway, I watched it for three days before making my entrance to let
them know I had seen the show. Shocked the do-wah-diddy out of them. [g]
You should have seen them dance!

I left for awhile and came back as Brat Girl when I saw something I
couldn't keep quiet over.

Then I saw some other people calling themselves "Brat Girl", thanks to
BD and his Googling. Those girls were visiting sites I would never
visit, so to not be confused with them (via Google Groups) I changed to
"Happy Texan". I hated that one and eventually just went with my real
name. I think even that was a mistake. It's not a very attractive name
and doesn't garner positive feed back very often. I think next I'll call
myself "Jennifer". People seem to like that name a lot! [g]

True story with a little joke at the end.

Surprise, surprise- *still* no fucking sign of hate.

Yep.
Betty came from annexcafe, where the NG's are moderated. Any personalia
is deleted, and expulsion is used from time to time. Betty could go
back to annexcafe and post to Her hearts content. I would suggest one
NG designed for Women. It is "annexcafe.pleasant.friendly.talk". She
would enjoy those Ladies I'm sure.
There are people on annexcafe who post Here, like aardvark for one.
Betty got what She gave, and that's what happens in an unmoderated NG.

You know ... I was trying to be through with this, but I've just seen
a post in the M.P.T.H. group that rekindled my anger and feelings of
devastation. I should really just get rid of my computers and find
something else to do with myself. Jenn and Eagle are killing me! And
I'm letting them do it. I've been acting as badly as they do. I don't
want to fight and have people calling me horrible names.
I would be sad for you if you let them run you away Betty, but I do
appreciate the way you feel. Only you can decide what is right for you,
though. I guess it is easier for me as an thick skinned old fart to
shrug them off.
I can shrug off a lot of stuff from Jenn, but that comment from Eagle
was especially hurtful. It hurt really bad. I don't know how long it's
going to take for me to get it out of my head. I don't feel like I
deserved anything close to what he said.

Invite your friends to this group - I would be quite happy for it to be
Betty's Buffet - it is open for the taking.

Talking about monkey-boi's nastiness, which is well-documented. She
appears to have been his target.

Venting again. Understandable.

This rat-trap group seems to be a healthy place for Betty to vent her
feelings, upset and frustrations.

The only evidence of hate appears to be from monkey-boi in another group,
but is unspecified.

I have them blocked where I don't have to see them, but I can see the
quotes in other posts.
Sometimes it can be best to just mentally block out whatever they say,
while reserving the right to poke a stick at them every now and again.
Post by Betty
Eagle is just a pitiful, person. Really nasty! I've never had to deal
with people like him and Jenn ever before. I was having nice
conversations in the alt.2600 group before Jenn spoiled it with her lies.
You may be surprised - the couple of times I looked back in that group,
the terrible duo seemed to have moved on.

I don't understand my compulsion to even be on Usenet when I have a
nice, quiet place to talk, where they can't even see me.

Nothing wrong here. Definitely no hate.

Commiseration, empathy and a little bit of advice.

Betty venting over an occurrence in another group. Occurrence
unspecified, but obviously the two named posters have between them
managed to upset her.

My own knowledge of previous interactions between Betty and these two
posters suggests to me that they've once again been ganging up and
bullying her.

She's upset, she's venting. Understandable and psychologically healthy.

No hate, just upset.

Nothing wrong here. Mockery of an unspecified group of posters elsewhere.
The group referred to could be any group, although those in on the joke
will know.

Still no hate. Mild mockery.

Big fucking deal.
