Arno R:

I was enjoying myself on all the rants against Steve a.k.a "PC Datahack" and
was interested to read the link below, but, it appears to be dead..any info?

Before you intend to do business with him look at:

Those are not 'rants, and believe me, none of us enjoy having to reply
to him. Steve is actively soliciting business in newsgroups dedicated
to free help. (See his first response to poster Fehn in the 'Calendar
and time sheet' thread in this newsgroup on 12/2/2005.)

By the way, that link works fine for me.
Perhaps you included the ; (updated) with the link.
Try it again.

rant

v. intr.
To speak or write in a angry or violent manner; rave. <-- all but this?

v. tr.
To utter or express with violence or extravagance: a dictator who ranted his
vitriol onto a captive audience.

n.
Violent or extravagant speech or writing.
A speech or piece of writing that incites anger or violence: “The vast
majority [of teenagers logged onto the Internet] did not encounter recipes
for pipe bombs or deranged rants about white supremacy†(Daniel Okrent).
Chiefly British. Wild or uproarious merriment.

Yes, I believe the correct term is 'rant'. Sort of. You may not be writing
in an angry manner, but your angry having to write about it at all. As I
would be.

What a troll.

It is possible that the link actually has been dead for a little while, or will be dead for some time shortly, or both.
My ISP has changed (from tiscali to planet) and I know 'they' are working these weeks to redirect all the homepages.
The link you mention however will continue to work until December 2006 I have been told.
If necessary I can/will put the pages elsewhere.

Btw: I have not enjoyed all this. In fact I was getting sick and tired of it ...
but I guess it's 'game over' for PCD now which is a good thing.

May I say it is an honor and privilage to receive a post by you.

I have great respect for all who devote their time and effort to help others
no matter what the field. The people in these NG's especially.

I did not mean to imply you enjoyed chasing Steve. I admire your
determination.

Incidentally, what happened to Steve? Did he finally just give up?

Sadly no, he's still on CDMA advertising, though currently less frequently.

Wow! That was pretty sudden. Last I saw, only a couple of days ago it
seems, he was still complaining just as annoyingly as ever about people
interfering with his spamming the NGs. (Worse, he was making some
apparently false claims that some other contributors here supported his
mischief.) I just hope not too many NG visitors were misled by him.

He's only posted a handful since 5 Dec.

I wouldn't have been nearly as annoyed with him had his sig line said
something like "Visit my Web site at www.... for my suggestions on
developing a database", actually post something useful on his Web site,
and put his advertising there. I'd expect that he'd even get some bites
that way, if the site looked good enough.

In my reader (Dutch time) I see the following last posts of Steve:
-- ms.public.access.gettingstarted Dec 4 22:02
-- ms.public.accessformscoding Nov 29 01:14
-- ms.public.accesstablesdesign Nov 30 06:16
(I did not spot him in the other ms.public.access groups for quite a while)

-- In cdma 5 posts since Dec 5 (4 arguing with people, or trying to convince people, 1 new job-hunt-attempt)

So it seems indeed that he still refuses to give up his job hunting.
He doesn't even know when he has lost? He doesn't even realise it's *game over*?

So we will just keep watching him.
The only thing needed is a quick reply (as soon as possible) with a link to:
http://home.tiscali.nl/arracom/whoissteve.html

As far as I am concerned: anyone here is allowed to show that link.
We don't think that will bring Steve *a lot* of new customers from the groups ...
Maybe he will quit *the game* as soon as he understands this?
Maybe not? We will see.

Btw:
Yesterday was a 'busy' day on that site:
==> 35 unique visitors.
==> 26 first time visitors.
==> 9 returning visitors.

Ed,

CDMA is shorthand for the usenet newsgroup comp.databases.ms-access. It is
a truly remarkable resource for free exchange of information on virtually
any topic related to MS-Access. There are many professional consultants and
many amatuers (like me) who almost invariably provide quick, friendly and
mostly helpful responses to questions. (Interspersed with an occassional
socially significant off topic debate, such as the proper temperature to
serve beer). All are welcome.

Read the post again and this time read it carefully. Then look at the third
post in this thread by the original poster. PT Barnum said "........."
It looks very much like Arno R or one of his henchman have duped you!! And
you continue to support and promote that conduct!!

So this is your obtuse way of saying you do not care about respecting the

for solicitation?

One of Arno R's henchmen just answered. Is he the one who posted the
original post in this thread?????

I keep getting unwanted email sent to my office by Arno R. I'm also getting
other forms of harassment at my office. Your supporting and promoting this
kind of action????

You don't get it! Anyone with half a brain cell would see that Arno R or one
of his goons posted that to post the subversive website about me. Do you
approve of this in the newsgroups?

To answer your question --
No! Many MVPs do it and its done for many reasons. Just take a look through
the posts and see how many aliases are used.

....or you could just do a quick Google for jsc3489 and discover that you
appear to be talking garbage.

And would you like to find me a post from an MVP using an alias?
