I would like to propose a new rule for the newsgroup. If a person would
like to start a discussion of a particular topic, I would like it to be
appropriate for that person to state that he or she wishes to monitor that
particular thread to keep the discussion somewhat on topic.

lol...you need to go off and be a moderator on some message board. The main
charm of alt newsgroups is the anarchy...and it works too.

The anarchy? If I post anything off topic like you could do in the 80's, I
get yelled at.

Oh I see, its only allowable when the "owners" of the ng permit it. Rave

So? It is being polite but no one makes us do so.
The group rules. Each community takes on a form of it's own. In the lakers
group half the subjects are off topic, it is just considered polite to mark
them as such so people can filter the subject.


It is not moderated and no one owns it. One person can not decided for
everyone how they should post, anarchy is not a bad word.

First, there are no rules. There's a charter and I know as little as you do
about it.

Rave, the problem here is that the Sonics newsgroup isn't very active so, if
you're a prolific poster (like you are) you can easily overwhelm the group.

If this were a fantastically popular newsgroup, your OT posts would be a
minor distraction.

Damn.... the cybergang ....That was good shit. Jane invented it, decided on
how we all ganged up on her, believed it, but she was really the one that
decided who the members were to fit her mood.

That guy that got on me after I congratulated the lakes that time was he a
regular with a new name? I thought it might be Brian but not like him to
invent an identity. The name was WBA-
IIRC.
