On November 13, 2002, I have been arraigned on these charges, by
Meesta Secret Squirrel, Jessup Worthington and Nomen Nescio (of whom
we all know do not exist):
1) Vandalism / Mass ***: Destroying old, valueless definitves with
the true intent of creating a market shortage of said definitives.
Interpretation: I have tossed damaged stamps into a box to give, free
of charge to those who would like to create art with them.
2) Inciting To Riot: Passing out propaganda, in the form of free
stamps, for the past 2.5 years. This includes various sordid and
sundry methods of soaking microfiche that contains stamp dealer's
Interpretation: It teaches newcomers how to soak stamps and gives them
stamps for free.
3) ***: This also includes a tirade by co-conspirator boB, of
who the authorities have yet to capture and formally charge. This
diatribe consists of brain-washing the un-knowing newbie collector
into a sense of understanding the hobby of stamp collecting.
Interpretation: It shows newcomers that they can enjoy the hobby.
4) *** / Fraud: Assisting in creating a ficticious country that
no stamp collector will ever visit, get stamps from or ever hear of
except in the newsgroups. This is called SNA.
Interpretation: Sadly enough, the newsgroup's humor is sometimes
sorely lacking. Maybe Geritol just isn't enough.
5) Voices Against The State: Meesta Barber has raised his voice high
above the rest of the citizens of the newsgroup in violation of the
"We All Must Keep Quiet Act" of 1999.
Interpretation: I don't take any ***from people who either take
themselves too seriously, have low esteem but try to be heroes, or
anonymously accuse us of stamp war crimes.
6) Insurrection, Treason, Sedition, (and we'll find a few more charges
as soon as the PC is fixed): Meesta Barber is charged with everything
that anyone could ever imagine.
Interpretation: I am guilty without a formal, true charge. I am to be
tried amongst the rank and file of the non-stamp industry. I cannot
have a lawyer. I cannot defend myself. I am guilty before I am even
charged with a crime. (They must've watched the Count of Monte Cristo
Further, these unkown individuals seem to have something they need to
say, want to say, but are still "in the closet" about it.
To these charges, I say "tttptptptpthththttpthththt!" and I'll drop my
.02 in the ***can as I walk out the door of the courthouse !!!!!
Maybe I sparked a little humor today. If not, please go look in the
mirror. When we take ourselves that seriously, it's a sad state of
affairs. We're not "ALL THAT".
