Ok folks, let's take the war, patriotism, terrorism discussions somewhere else please. 50% of the
articles in my news reader come up "Ignored" now. Let's just ride and talk about it!!!

That was my position a few days ago. But really, this IS an alt group with no charter, and there are
absolutely no rules. Secondly, this is what's foremost on the mind of many (probably most) readers.
Third, the weather's keeping a lot of us from riding much. So asking to stop is rather useless.

There is always r.b.o if you want serious content control. ;-)

As much as I'd love to accomidate you, these guys are the ones I want to talk to about it. If I want

Can't you configure your reader to NOT display messages that are ignored? Surely that'd solve the
problem. You'd never know that they had even existed so would it matter that they'd comprised 50% of
the newsgroup? Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Trying to moderate an 'alt' newsgroup is like trying to herd cats.

Ok, but you are going to have to pay for EDS to come in and coral all of the stray threads. While
you are at it have them take care of that loud mouthed sociopath from the Bay area as well.
