Actually my view of it is a bit earthier as I am sure most of those who 
know will attest, I am a bit of an earthy character. So please allow me 
not to disappoint.

All of the BS that is in this forum, the manure which has been ripped of 
any of its nutritional value and thus utterly devoid of content and 
relevance, spread by the ne'er do wells who have NEVER done a damn thing 
for us except give a lousy few hundred dollars (at best) and then toss 
Molotov cocktails, will not launch a single bloody thing into space 
except my blood pressure.

My attitude is easy to follow.  Shut up and do something useful for the 
organization.  When everything you can do in a positive way has been 
exhausted, write up a report/note/letter giving your constructive 
criticism and send it to the organization president and then shut up 
until you find another positive endeavor to undertake.  All that has 
happened here with this policy is valuable time and energy from the 
VOLUNTEERS who have chosen to take the assault visited upon them hourly 
in this medium, which should have been spent looking for viable ways to 
launch anything useful into space, has been wasted by having to write 
this policy.

Be glad that I could no longer take it.  I would have voted to shut this 
mess off and reveled in the silence.  Then I would have been assured 
that the mindless rot that gets drooled onto the keyboard by the 
impending senescence of the monstrously inept that visit here and 
blather would at least have none of the feeding that they get by reading 
their tripe and congratulating themselves in their continuing delusions 
that they have accomplished a thing except hurt the organization.

My very best 73's to all who care enough about AMSAT to actually do 
something for it rather than babble from the depths of the depravity 
that is surely in most of the ne'er do wells souls.
