Off topic post are not lousey (spell?). They are often interesting.
Also, your posting on awful (in your opinion) OT is OT also.
Modelers need exposure to what people are thinking. It is important. War or peace is important. Who is running the country and what are they up to; this is important also.
If you build models in all your free time, stay in RMS for all your internet surfing and never read a newspaper, how else are you going to find out about the issues of the day?
My advice, stop complaining. It is a waste of breath anyway, since you cannot stop the OT posting in an unmoderated newsgroup.

Vess, just remember - you opened this door...

Maybe, just maybe, modelers get their fill of what what people are thinking by watching Maury, Oprah and the evening news. Personally, I couldn't give a crap to what people are thinking. That's not why this newsgroup was formed. RMS is not the venue for this. Search the recent posts on RMS 'fading away'. There's plenty of food for thought there - have a big bowlful.
The inference is that they'll find it here, from you? Pass...
Spoken like a true champion of foot-stomping, tantrum-throwing two-year-olds. Shall I do a Google search to see when you last sent in and on-topic post? I shudder to think... Tom's post, while OT, referred to the group and an issue the whole group relates to. I can understand why it got your hackles up as you seem to be adept at OT chaff and his opinion runs against your own so you couldn't help but comment.
I for one, get plenty of updates, news and current events from my normal sources and visit RMS to discuss modeling - *MY HOBBY* - not politics, not war, not generic Viagra and certainly not your views on items like running the country. I suppose you use a screwdriver to hammer nails? If not - and you indeed use a hammer for this task - why post political drivel here and not to one of the political newsgroups? It's great, big Web out there...
And, before you point a finger calling me a hypocrite, this is indeed a further OT post by me, calling out an infamous OT poster. I'll admit it freely so save your typing. I prefer to think oppositely of you - instead of this being an unmoderated newsgroup and posting anything you wish, find and read the RMS FAQ and play by the rules. Don't come back and call me a Netcop-wannabe or somesuch childish thing (a true cop-out for someone so eloquent) - read it and follow its guidelines. Or, are you the disgruntled modeler who can't figure out how to get your completed, superdetailed cockpits into your already-glued-up fuselages?
Oh, one last idea - don't take anyone to task for spelling - you'll pay a dear price after the last Iraq thread - I didn't see anyone on your case but I laughed plenty...
So there, now you know what I'm thinking... Do you feel complete?

Golly, is it 'sweeps' month here too? Tom, just for starting this I'm going to sacrifice one of my redundant 1/72 kits tonight by sticking pins in it. If the spell works all your 1/72 kits will turn into 1/32. ;)

Bill, NOOOOOOOO. Tom's house and part of California will explode and fall into the sea from the tons of extra plastic and resin.

Now that's just plain mean!!!
Oh, better check my spelling. Yep, loks ko.
Remember, Bill, it works both ways. Far easier to shrink than enlarge. At least that's what a lot of spam tells me.

I'll join in on the "thanks a lot, Tom" thread-- you just made me spit coffee all over my monitor. Good one!

I dunno, Ron - sometimes I think the 'other' coke might serve me better than my favored soft drink of the same name... ;-) Vess just set me off - he seems to have the opposite of the Midas touch - shall I call it the 'sh*t touch'? As for Bill's comment - I can see that being a problem for Tom but, alas, I only own two 1/72nd kits!

What, dark beer?....;)
Yah well, he's in my killfile for a reason, rabidity in anything sets me off.
I have maybe 12 1/72 kits, 11 bombers and one Drakken in the red & white Austrian scheme.

Must be time to invest in monitors.
Nah. I need every dime for more models that I'll never build. :-)

Come in from the Dark Side, Frank.
Two is a good start, just keep them away from water unless you want to really get into 1/72 scale models.

Tough call there, Tom, as both are Heller USN EC-121 variants! While they are 1/72nd scale, they also are big (an homage to the larger scales - ;-) )
