A few months ago I was having some problems in respite of WiFi 
connections, and
asked this list about them.  I got a response from "poma" which was 
cryptic and (to me) incomprehensible, but after a bit of nudging "poma" 
me with a step-by-step recipe to diagnose and rectify my problem. So I 
have evidence
that he (I assume "he") can be kind and helpful if approached properly 
and with
sufficient persistence.

I never did get around to thanking "poma" for his assistance; this was 
of me.  My apologies to "poma".

That being said I do find most of his (?) posts to be cryptic, flippant, 
unutterably terse and impossible to understand.  It is not clear to me 
he aims at being bewildering or simply doesn't realize that no-one (or 
anyone) else in the world is on his wave-length.

At any rate I would hesitate to write him off as a "troll" or to ignore 
his posts
completely.  Just treat most of his posts with a shrug and delete them.  
will be (probably) be the occasional useful gem.
