It may be me, but this esteemed arena of varied and occasionally entertaining posts seems, since the new year to have more than its usual share of vitriol and ill feeling.

Since I seemed to have received some of this in RL recently and paranoia is rapidly setting in thought I come up with a small filk.

(Expect the newsgroup is getting ready to become a teenager <g>)

we dont need no moderation
we dont need no thread control
no dark sarcasm on the newsgroup
old farts leave newbies alone
hey, old farts leave newbies alone
all in all its just another plonk in the thread
all in all its just another plonk in the thread

let us show some toleration
let us have some netiquette
newbies lurk a little please
hey, newbies lurk a little please
all in all its just another plonk in the thread
all in all its just another plonk in the thread
