sophocleese AMERICAN ATTACKS**Part 9,one week later (110* d) RE: AMERICAN ATTACKS**Part 9,one week later 19 Sep 01

Thanks Mrrzy for letting me know.

I started a thread on the petition yesterday labelled "No More Violence" (a bit bland perhaps but accurate). I also included a very good poem by Auden. As yet only one person has responded to that thread. However a thread titled "Sycophantic Americans" which is clearly a troll has had far more responses, even though all it does is repeat a Bob Dylan song which has already been posted a few times in the last week. Terrorists, like trolls and flamers, like attention, and apparently they get it even from those who complain about them. There is something comforting about doing the predictable isn't there?

By chance, CBC radio is at this moment reading that poem over the airwaves.
