why do you spam sci.physics
with articles from popular science articles

and spam my posts with off topic comments
such as the one above?

Are you motivated to kill threads
that might get some folks to question conventional wisdom
by inserting stupid off topic posts.

As Archimedes Plutonium pointed out
a few years ago, it appears that when
someone's posts begin to get a little intellectual action,
you tend to flood sci.physics
with a batch of your popular science articles
so that they dominate the newsgroup.

Have you talked to your shrink about this compulsion?
