The sound of a killfile plonking,
Subtle vibrations of a hard disk doing an rm * -f
The scintillating phosphors on the monitor, dimming
ever so gently 
over time.

Nascent idealism, squashed before its wings were dry.
Fascist USEnet desecration and subversion, 
a constant sleet of subatomic Cluelessness.
A nervous first post to a new (to you) newsgroup
The shattering realization that Yet Another Cabal has arisen.
Drearyness, no new ideas, only safe, short-choppy-sentences.

I have nothing to add that hasn't been iterated before.
There is nothing to say to those that know.
There is nobody to help those that don't.
Vacuity is its own reward.
