Now, this may be Google Groups spinning me a line, but I was curious about
TexasGate's contributions to this group, a stalwart of posting just about
the same thing again and again.

And I discovered that it seems like tomorrow (16th March) is the 11th
anniversary of TG's first homophobic post on this group.

So unless someone can prove me wrong, I think we're due a party.

Well done on keeping it up (will that get an expected response?) all these
years!

Well it seems to be after Latin was phased out as the preferred Group
language (it's been downhill ever since) so nobody that matters, the

Similar, same 'active ingredient' (Molybdenum Disulphide. [MoS2]), different
product.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molybdenum_disulfide
MoS2 is awesome stuff when it comes to lubricating metals. It's got a very
two-dimensional molecular structure like graphite so is very slippery but
unlike graphite it has an affinity for metals and can bond to the surfaces
on a microscopic level. This results in a semi-permanant lubricated layer on
the metal.

When I used to work in an automotive engineering shop we used it on 'oil
film' bearing surfaces during assembly so they'd be protected and lubricated
on initial start-up until the oil had time to get around the engine (hence
the 'assembly compound'). It was particularly important with racing engines
as they were usually very expensive builds so no chances were taken. (The
place where I worked specialised in high-powered racing jet-boat engines and
also worked on quite a few speedway engines.)

MoS2 based greases are also used for open gears and rollers in industries
like mining. I have a tube of MolyBond GA 50 (50% MoS2 by volume) here that
I used when I swapped camshafts in my last car as well as when I stripped
and tuned my air rifle. It wasn't strictly needed for the camshaft job but I
had it on hand so why not? It's most useful when assembling ICEs that might
not be fired up straight away. It doesn't drain away like oil does so stays
where you put it until it's needed.

MoS2 isn't the cheapest lubricant at several hundred to a thousand dollars a
kilo (depending on grade). That's why most 'moly grease' that you might buy
at your local auto-parts store only contains 5% MoS2 (and isn't much better
than a good non-MoS2 grease). The 100g tube of MolyBond GA 50 that I'm using
cost me $70 (In the automotive engineering workshop we used to have 5kg tubs
of the stuff at each assembly bench - I wondered why the boss was always
saying "you only need a little bit!" and we didn't use it on every job.)
However when you need it there's nothing better.

It's the primary ingredient in any number of oil additives, some of which
claim that you can drain the engine oil after adding it and running a while
and the engine would continue to run for a long time.

I have him killfiled now but I held off for a while as I remember a couple
of posts more than a year ago when he actually mentioned things to do with
F1 (as an aside) that showed he had reasonable knowledge and understanding
of Formula 1.

However they were an aberration and I didn't see any more like that.

I’m pretty sure that he has been posting here for longer than that (or does
it just *seem* like it?). Either way I certainly can’t be arsed to check.

Fortunately NewsTap filters him out very effectively so I don’t see his
posts unless someone responds to him.

He clearly has a strong compulsion to post his rubbish, otherwise why would
he have kept going so long. Perhaps it’s the same thing that drives people
to scrawl on lavatory walls. We assume that he is homophobic, but perhaps
he s the reverse. Might make an interesting psychological study.

Or perhaps not!

Like this one?

"Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals"

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/homophobes-might-be-hidden-homosexuals/

"Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new
study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and
hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit
undercover ones."

...or did you have another angle?

No, I was thinking along the lines the article suggests i.e. “methinks the

Homophobia is only part of his arsenal - and can only wound you if you believe that it is a shameful thing to be gay - otherwise he's just your regular potty mouth.

The reverse gay thing is current again, because of a couple of politicians who were strongly against marriage equality and then were found to have lovers of the same sex. It is a thing, but it's not the only case. Racists don't have to be what they hate to hate it. Anti-semites don't have to be Jewish. Plain old bigotry explains a lot.

...and racism is only offensive if you are black?

You have to be especially insensitive to think that normally
inoffensive words cannot cause offense when used in a derogatory manner.
