The Ten Types of Usenet Users
The Lurker -- Never posts, never replys just observes.
The Vulture -- Never posts, but ready and waiting to point out any fault in
The Knit Picker -- Never posts but will break down, question and analyze
your post until it is no longer funny.
The Poacher -- Never posts, but will reply to another post with a better or
different punchline, stealing the laugh.
The Flame Fodder -- Usually a newbie who asked a lame question, usually in
the wrong group. No mercy is shown.
The News Cop -- Only ever post to tell people they are in the wrong group
or to stop spamming etc.
The Wacko -- Will often post a message or joke which makes no sense. The
wacko will never post again. Strange.
The Spammer -- we all HATE the spammer!!!!
The Stealth Spammer -- Post Spams that need to be read before you can tell
its a spam.
The Hero -- This brave person often posts at the mercy of the Vultures,
Knit pickers and the Poachers.
