it wasn't your mother he was talking about, on the THIRD account he
created at Juno to get around my kicking him off the other two. How
many times do I have to let him log back on and start that filth, with
no response from his postmasters, before I'm not overreacting? Five?
Ten? 20? Or do I just get used to wakign up, reading the f--k-letter of
the day, and kicking it off wondering what name he'll appear as

And then there are the 7,000 I'm protecting....

Nope. You forgot the other option: find a different email address and
be welcomed back.

I don't care. None, if that's what they want. Juno.com can no longer
spread filth on my sites, which is what really matters to me.And in
fact, response from the juno users is mixed. Some positive, some
negative, a couple hostile, one or two clueless. One of the guys who'd
been kicked off demanded he be unsubscribed from my lists, since he's
now on strike against me or something....

And I have 7,000 that no longer have to read the crap he was sending. A
small price to pay. If a postmaster will not police his own domain,
I'll have to do it for him. And ufnortuately, I can't use a rifle the
way he could. there will be collateral damage. but they had a chance,
and ignored me.
>Did anyone other than yourself complain to juno?
yes. I've heard from a number of users.
