Big Bertha Thing format
Anybody heard of the fly-paper trap?
Where all the flies are collected, in an unsightly mess,
hanging from the kitchen ceiling.
The expensive version is the lizard with a long tongue,
that retracts after each catch.
Take an uncensored version of a usenet newsgroup,
show the subject line of each thread header,
with the total number of postings and the net
number of postings after extracts.
Put the total number of extracts, in the first line,
at the top of the list of postings.
Anyone wishing to search the extracts clicks on it
and finds each person extracted with 2 lines each.
The first line shows the number of thread headers
and the second the number of replies.
Further clicks go down to posting level.
Extract everyone with more than 1000 postings
on any single newsgroup, from all newsgroups.
Examples of the fly-paper trap can be found on:-

Big Bertha Thing indomitable
(1938) about biography of Lord Grey of Falloden
Lord Grey of Falloden sprang from a Northumberland family of country
who for generations had played a part in public affairs.
His own pleasures lay in the country, but his sense of duty drove him
He was happiest fishing for trout, and watching wild birds,
but once he was a member of parliament his abilities and character
won for him a prominence that gave him little time for such pursuits.
From 1905 to 1916 Lord Grey was Foreign Secretary.It is strange that the man whose heart was never entirely in politics
should have risen to such a high office, should have held it so long,
and in such crucial years.
It is possible to consider Lord Grey's life as a failure.
His sense of duty prevented him from living the life he loved.
His efforts to preserve the peace of Europe suffered the defeat of
that darkened the rest of his life.
He sacrificed his eyesight in his wartime service in the government.
When at last release came, and he returned to his birds and books,
he could no longer see them. Domestic griefs beset him.
Yet as our extract from his biography shows,
from this tragic material his serene and strong nature
won a greatness that is an inspiration and splendid example.(Two
He was equally cut off from books, of which as life advanced he had
scarcely less fond.
I classify the different parts of my body as being
of different ages, as thus:
99 Sense of smell
56 Sense of Hearing (My age)
45 Heart and lungs
It makes an unequal team to get along with.
