                                       because we dont' realy give a damn
                                       about your political stance)

Now, are you absolutely sure that you want to do this? [ny]

YES? Perhaps I did not make myself clear.

Are you ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, COMPLETELY sure that you want to do this? [ny]

And you do realize that by posting to USENET you are signing life over to
the devil? [yn]

And you also realize that since you will be costing BILLIONS if not TRILLIONS
of dollars, and will send several countries into financial disintigration,
you will be spit upon by all chilren of the future for many years to come
as the sole reason for the fall of the earth? [ny]

Are you prepared to meet the wrath of GreenPeace since you so proudly 
display your ignorance for your environment and planet earth? [ny]

In conclusion, I must ask you one more time:

You really want to do this? [ny]

Alright then...

Prepared file to include [none]:

Sorry, your article is now too long. Please start again, trimming the headers
to conserve space. Perhaps your username is too long. All articles in the
future shall be conserved to 8 bytes. No more. 

This ends your Pnews session. Please come again...
