It's an interesting change of view, isn't it?  Previously, they were
studiously ignoring the postings, I think in the hope that Roy would get
bored or give up.  In fact, Roy's done no such thing, and has continued
with this very useful work, so they've now legitimised the postings by
responding to them.  As you say, in Erik's case, they're puerile
one-liners in the main, but as he's marked down, I don't see them unless
someone else responds too.

I'd suggest that if anyone has an /on topic/ remark to make about the
original news posting, it might be better to reply to the original, not
to Erik's rather unpleasant one liners.
