I just want to thank all those who sent in complaints. Sorting through
the garbage on newsgroups is incredibly difficult, and now Conrad is gone,
it will be a lot more pleasant on sci.anthropology. As for the fellow
above, I take heart from Conrad's case.

Alternative viewpoints are fine. However, 75% of Conrad's posts were ad
hominem. 100% of your post is (and the more I write about this, the
larger percentag of my post is). Anyway, that's my problem with Conrad.
This comment about pacifists I only get sort of tangentially, but to tell
you the truth I'm not sure if I care...

Thanks again, those who complained about Conrad. I can't place killfiles
either, and I have no idea how to route complaints, so I'm grateful.
