These postings have now been curiously edited away, which would make
Brice's comment itself seem erroneous, if it weren't for the extracted

uncomfortable seeing posts edited or removed in this way (while
sympathising with the desire to maintain accuracy) because it tampers
with the historical record that the newsgroup's archives constitute.
