Re: It is possible? Usenet is Dead?

You see, I also contribute quite a hefty sum of information to this website as well as this forum and there are a slew of people that I helped set up in private, so I don't feel bad when I occasionally ask people about their own setups.

»My Setup

The situation we have today is that information is spelled out so simpy (to which, I contributed to) that people that we don't want involved are now involved and are shutting the process down.

Because of this, those of us who aren't cut off do not want to be penalized any further by helping others out.

We have to be purposely crass with people so that we don't hurt our own setups any further. That is the way it has been for the last twenty years. Eventually, the process gets simplified and publicized and then it gets shut down.

"It's different when I do it." Got it. Google can't find your questions in the forum.

Uh, ok. Sorry my innocuous question about my own private computer this morning ruined your personal Usenet last week. My bad.

I'd disagree, it's one thing to help someone setup a usenet client, and another to tell them where to get content.

The issue I have with some of the sites getting shut down right now, is that they provide direct access to content when they may or may not have the rights to do so, making them (and us) a heat score.

Helping isn't the problem here.
