was essentially the reaction of a combatant
to a "rescuer" in a classic

As active Usenet threads typically degenerate into
centered about race, religion, money, politics, occupation, education, etc.

to understand the dynamics of Usenet threads
it is helpful to understand the

and to understand WHERE you are in the TRIANGLE,
and WHY you are there.

Are you there to defend some
race, religion, money, politics, occupation, education, position etc.

are you there to generate heat and expand the triangle
or are you there to generate light and diminish the triangle.

No doubt, some heat/conflict/war/revolution
makes life more progressive and interesting,
but some thought and effort should be put into
limiting the size of conflict triangles.

Stimulation is progressive and healthful,
but death, destruction and despair
is regressive and un-healthful.

The bottom line is
give some thought to your role in
modulating these triangles,
and to the size of the triangle in play.

In other words,
no matter if you are a
you can affect the size of the triangle
and help optimize it.

The physics question is:
"Does the triangle gain weight when it expands?"
