OK, this newsgroup has some trolls, and a couple of SUPER Trolls.
They get their rocks off baiting other users. They also change
identities fairly often.
Please try to identify them and do not respond to their tactics.
Identification is pretty easy. Simply look at the things they say.
Things such as anti-American postings which are obviously intended to
inflame are typical. Praise for the terrorists who perpetrated 9/11,
anti-Vietnam comments, anti-Iraq/Middle East comments regarding US

Please review your news reader for procedures on creating a killfile.
Then, once a troll is identified, killfile them. If your news reader
has a killfile setting for "delete", that troll's posts won't arrive
in your threads. This will not get rid of them totally because they
can only get their rocks off by causing trouble for others. It's
terrible to be a failure in life.
Please, don't give the troll the recognition they seek. They may never
go away, but we can at least deny them their fun.
