I thought that article was the dumbest article I've seen in Time for quite a while. There's no reason to write an article about this dumbass who gets his mailbox flooded... Hell, they couldn't even get the name of this newsgroup right: Just another example of how the media has no idea what the Internet is, or how to utilize it correctly.

               =BA=B0=B0=B1=B1=B2=B2   This .sig has been censored   =B2=B2=
               =BA=B0=B0=B1=B1=B2=B2      by decree of Congress      =B2=B2=
               =BA=B0=B0=B1=B1=B2=B2                                 =B2=B2=

Like other trolls before him, Gene doesn't have the balls to come in here and defend statements he made to the press concerning this newsgroup. He knows he's full of shit, and that we'll prove he's full of shit. If a member of the press should happen to lurk here, and see just how full of shit Gene is, it would bruise his ego beyond repair. Peace my ass. Gene sucks.
