I haven't "blacklisted" her/him (yet) but I didn't really think that it 
was Karl in drag. Karl has more intelligence. But it has been suggested 
that this is about when Karl was put on (?)"partial moderation" or 
whatever it was called.

But I am not sure that it is an Indian student - read at least one of 
the quotes I gave (where s/he claims that s/he has converted all the 
computers in a company under her/his control to Ubuntu). That is either 
factual or simply a fantasy to try and gain attention - or the ramblings 
of a..... never mind. What has been posted to date contradicts itself 
from post to post: "an experienced user" and then asking how to install 
wine.....Speculation is pointless.

And in addition, it is now very difficult to know where the poster comes 
from - quite apart from the gmail cover-up. You concluded that it is an 
Indian student. I cannot be sure any more. We had *Nikita *Khrushchev 
but then Elton John sings "Nikita" which is aimed at a female :-) .


Went to a discount massage parlour the other day. Wasn't 'til I paid me money that I found out that it was self-service.
