Topic: My final word on troll (12 msgs / 628 lines)
1) From: John - Deep Southern Texas
Folks, I need to make a couple of things clear.  I was very tired and
shouldn't have said anything in the beginning.  The post I got came in parts
and that was my fault as well.  The first note - somewhat of a flame - over
the HTML posting - which I know creates a problem when read on the digest,
and with Linux programs.  I made a fairly flip response - because I had
apologized long before the flame.  I didn't stop to think that the guy is
reading a digest and may not have known all that.  He took umbrage at my
flip response and what came back may have been well deserved - but familiar.
 It was intirely possible that his total thought about "all the garbage that
you've been posting" was directed only to the HTML.
I should have just let it go, but somehow felt like a sudden stop would have
caused a problem - wow - what I did caused the problem.  If you want to yell
 maybe you should yell at me - but please don't.  
I apologize for my flip response to the original post.  And then for taking
up so much bandwidth with the fall-out.  I really love this list and hope
that we can all just move on.  I learned something from it all - hope we all
did.
John - looking for more storage space.

    You really think there's a chance that I can kick this habit? I mean
really.  I'd have to ship out a lot more than the HotTop.  
    I like your analogy of human bean in distress.   But this got to me t=
oo
late.  I've been savoring multiple shots of Meil from the Solis, and Hueh=
ue
from the La Pavoni, and we had the first Isle of Saint Helena from the Co=
na
today - and I'm not stressed - just in love!
    I do have a question for the list - I've got five roasters now - how
many do I have to keep to stay in CSA?

Dan,
    Promise not to put popcorn in it?  Hang on, I've been asked to preach=

a faith rally this fall in Indy, so you might get to sample some of the
fruit of this bad habit of mine.

It's all because of your Hottop Roaster John.
You got carried away and lost your bearings on reality.
I'll help you. Contact me privately and I'll give you a shipping address 
where you can send the Hottop Roaster and thus avoid the risk of more 
Torch emails and risking annoyng more Home Roast List denizens. 
Furthermore! You will substantially reduce the risk of more physical 
injury and 3rd degree burns.
John! You can kick this habit. It all starts with the first roast, you 
have to control the urge!!!  I have faith in you John.
Tell you what, I'll even pay for the shipping of the Hottop! Isn't that 
nice of me?
Why do I do this?   Because you're a nice guy and I'm a wonderful person 
who likes to help out a fellow coffee bean in distress.
I'll bear the suffering of Hottop ownership in your stead
*chuckle*

See, John,  I knew something positive would happen as a result to this.
Glenn is right.  You must forgoe the machine.  Oh, and Glenn said to ship it
to me instead; but he still wants to pay for the shipping.   What a guy!  :)

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
John,
 
At the 5-roaster level, you have to add the "intergalactic ribbon of
shame" to your lapel that says "Hello, my name is John and I own 5
roasters".  Unfortunately, having more than 5 roasters, you have
actually pushed the CSA envelope beyond capacity and are in jeopardy of
disqualification.  The only remedy when this has happened, it to eject
the latest roaster that you bought and donate it to a friend.  And
well.you know where the rest of this message heads.

Only 5???  Shoot, I've got 4 Poppery's, 3 "original" Popcorn Pumpers, 4 Poppery II, a Popaire, a wb roaster, and a Gourmet.
But, alas, no 'real' roasters (drum).  I'd like to get a Turbo oven and fiddle with that, however.

At the risk of continuing something off topic (and btw, I did email John on 
this privately), I personally would appreciate it if listserv members could 
refrain from posting html emails to the list. I wanted to read this 
listserv thru PINE a while back, but it proved impossible with all the html 
being posted, so I had to set up this specific email account on my notebook 
computer (winxp) running Eudora to read it all.
HTML is really way too long for what it serves up, and really, isn't proper 
netiquette for email, and especially for mailing lists. For example, 
coffeenut's short paragraph above translates into all this html (with a ton 
of css inline, to boot):
