Am I missing something, or is the truth actually that Mike Horwath is the
admin of a usenet server, and he doesn't censor posts on that server. Is
that what you mean? 'cause it sounds like you're saying he personally puts
this stuff online because it's what 'does it for him'. hmm. not a very nice
way of twisting the reality IMO.

My guess is that he made the original poster mad in some way--maybe he
wouldn't sell some service to him, maybe it was something else
entirely--so the poster is trying to embarrass Horwath in public. The
part about fired and incompetence could be a complete fabrication. If
Mr. Horwath actually worked for Winternet, he may have been laid off
because of a business slowdown.

The original poster is ticked off, obviously. However, she/he might
not be too bright, either. If I were going to embarrass somebody with
a web page, I wouldn't do it on a server where the person I was trying
to embarrass had enough control to get me shut down.

Duh! For my next trick, I'm going to make up a page telling
everything I don't like about AOL and put it on my free AOL web
page....

We'll just hope the original poster doesn't have any serious assets.
I'd think Mr. Horwath has enough information for a good court case for
slander, defamation, or whatever they call it in their jurisdiction.
The part about "not too bright" comes to mind again.
