so you guys have to be glad
Welcome, but the way this group is going you may be the
only one here now.
When Trump was president there was plenty to talk about.
Now that Biden is president, the liberals are silent.
You are right though, this group is almost finished.
I've been thinking of inviting people I know from other
groups to post here, but I'm afraid it will just bring
more trolls. I'm sure anyone looking at this group for
the first time will think it's not worth reading because
of all the junk posts here.
I started posting here more than 20 years ago. At that time
it was very active, but I've watched it gradually decline.
At one time Usenet was the Facebook, Twiitter, and tech
forum of the Internet. Now it has become a backwater used
mainly for sharing binary files. Ask the average Millenial
if they know what Usenet is and you'll get a blank stare.
Oh well, it still has its uses, but not ones I would care
to talk about.
yes lets have no talking in usenet
What would you like to get out of Usenet in addition to talking?
i don't think i've ever considered what i want out of usenet ,
i got a wife out of it 25 years ago and left it at that
Oh? So you're a troll?
oh definitely , one of the best , and proud of it
that was cute now try plonking this
The only way I will see you again is if you use another news server.
I'm filtering on giganews in the headers.
I don't use Giganews, but the Troll does. I'll report him to his
provider, for all the good that would do. I filter on the author, but
as the sick ass Troll apparently knows, the news reader I use can't
filter on an author name like "%". Problem with filtering on the
server is that legit posters may use Giganews. In any event this
group is close to dead. That's a shame because we had a good thing
going for many years. Sorry to see it die.
As far as I know, no one in this newsgroup uses Giganews.
I have tried to help keep this group going by posting articles I think
are worth talking about, but only you respond to any of them. So I
guess the other people that did post here just don't care if the group
dies. Or maybe they died.
Most of the best have literally died. Being a retirement group, it
attracted the 55+ group. I first posted here when I was a couple of
years from retirement. What I didn't realize was that even back then
it was a group focused on politics, not the actual issues of
retirement. We had a lot of good people, and it was sad to see them
go. In some cases they were so involved that they left instructions
with a wife or relative to log on and inform us of their passing.
Anyhow, I appreciate your efforts, but it looks like it has come down
to you, me, Josh and Islander, with Gary dropping by occasionally. The
troll is a killer. I have no idea what motivates such a sick
personality -- probably loneliness and a need for attention.
