Compulsory water metering




Like I said bugs exist. There were well known (and exploited) bugs in sendmail but there weren't calls to stop using mail. There were exploited bugs in bind but we still use DNS. Why is a bug in an html processor any different? At least with the html ones there had to be a user unlike the others where no user was required.
I think you are confusing protocols with implimentation which is a bad thing IMO.

You *can* execute text as you have stated previously.

noone can help usenet defying common-sense - rules will always have problems when they do that

say - you - with the benefit of limited comprehension - that maybe 'a rule', but it is certainly not the reason

rules are for those who lack the intelligence and common-sense to work without them - i can prove this without contradiction

more fool them - then they wont be able to benefit from my wisdom
secondly - no one ever kill-files - they just say so - curiosity is toooooooooooooo powerful

you can use 'green screens' now - so what are you saying exactly?

yet another case of you putting 2 & 2 together and making 5 - email clients (not just outlook) put the cursor at the top for a very good reason - the fact that it hasn't dawned on you cant be helped - i suggest you stick to rules
Fact - You file your new gas bill behind alllllllllllllllllll your old (archived) gas bills - i know this to be so, in fact i am so confident that i will shoot myself in the head if it isn't so - based on 'your' confirmation
before computers were even invented, professional filing was (still-is) current-most-first - current information (the latest news) is filed in front of the old news - 'archives' are kept immediately behind from the most current to the least current
i'd like to say for obvious reasons but i fear it eludes you - however, rather than explain the reasons i have decided to let you 'think' about the benefits before i tell you
this method of handling news could not be transfered to paper until the advent of computers - but now it can - and has been - by all email clients - i dread to imagine what your email responses look like - i fear you will be fighting a losing battle with the rest of your colleagues whilst you pontificate your misguided conclusions
'the' reason for posting in-line is where you need to address specific points (as opposed to the post as a whole) - so it is also common-sense that the reply by within the vicinity of the point it is addressing

Exactly, facing towards me, so that if I lift the pile out, the oldest is on the top.

Nope.

Unless you wish to remain isolated you will change your mind to co-operate rather than stick two fingers up to everyone. There is only one good answer to your stupid comments and that's to kill-file you.
Just don't expect any help from anyone - because they won't be listening.

Sorry to criticise Jethro, your answer was correct, but in the wrong place.

(posting) -

is

QUOTE link:
"....Q7: Why shouldn't I put my comments above the quoted material? A7: ...........When you have just a single question and response, and they're both short, and the discussion doesn't develop any further, it really doesn't make that much difference in practice...."

Link makes no comment about top posting

QUOTE link:
".... Another problem is that top-posters often word their replies on the assumption that you just read the previous message,,,,,"
Errrrrm - You HAVE! - duh! - and if you haven't - i suggest you do!
Latest News should always come first! the history is there if you can be bothered to read it - and if you cant then it's evidently not of interest
I can only thank god that newspapers / TV and any other news medium doesn't adopt this counter-intuative method of spreading news - They prefer the intuative method of STARTING with the headlines and don't 'first' bore me to death with the ancient history that appeared in the last 15 prints (that i would ALREADY know if i was really interested) before 'eventually' telling me THE NEWS

Firstly, MS Outlook is an email program and cannot be used for Usenet. I assume you are talking about Outlook Express.
Secondly, Agent (which I use) places the cursor at the top as well.
Thirdly, the correct place for the cursor is at the top, not the bottom - this allows judicious snipping of irrelevant stuff and the interjection of comments. I would expect all good newsreaders (and some rubbish ones) to place the cursor at the top.
Fourthly, top posters are mostly stupid, ignorant, young or a combination of all three. Their posts are also so rarely worth reading that it's not worth worth bothering about any of them.

Do you understand your sig? (i suspect not) - because it applies appropriately here

Not wishing to be pedantic, but Outlook can certainly display Usenet messages. They are not collected by Outlook but by Exchange, with which Outlook is normally paired in a server-based network.
Certainly it was OE which is responsible for top-posting, due to the nature of many OE users. Outlook is not often used in a domestic environment.

You can use Outlook without using Exchange.
If you do that, then the News component of OE gets used to do that bit.

The block of flats where my mother lives had meters installed by Thames Water several years ago, but they never read the meters and continue to send out bills based on the ratable value.
Last year, they wrote to my mother asking her if she would like to have a water meter. She phoned them to say that she already had a water meter, thank you, and that she would be happy to be billed accordingly. The call centre person she spoke to refused to believe my mother and declined her invitation to come and have a look at the meter.

Yes, that's what they (the water company) told us too. Anyone like to quote something other than a water company flyer that backs this up in law?
I didn't believe them any more than I believed the BG "engineer" (i.e. salesman) when he told us our boiler was unsafe and would have to be replaced (this was seven years ago and the boiler is still going strong and perfectly safe).
