Here is a compilation of his subjects:


*What security tool that Ubuntu Forums should have used to not be

*To that create a FAQ that says no be unreliable?

*What are the BSD's projects that are responsibles by existence of
Internet and e-mail ? 

*Richard Stallman remains  hypocritical liar?

*Complete online course in assembly language of Randall Hyde's is really
course in assembly language? 

*There is user group FreeBSD discussing matters that  lead nowhere?

*Assembly continues to be used in the development of FreeBSD?
(This one is worth showing the body of the message) - According to the
book "Complete and Total C" by Herbert Schildt, the general rule is not
to use Assembly because it creates too many problems.

and, of course, the latest:

*The source code of  *BSD contains the comment  ‘Does this belong here?’

This guy was banned from our list for firing blanks like
these. He dared posting some of these in hackers@!

Some may argue that these are legit and pertinent. Hey, if anyone is in
the mood for philosophical dives, why not? But please, feed the troll
on a private pool. 

Just my 0,02...
