Wow, long time Hansang! Hope all is well with you. Pretty much all NG's have
gone to hell, I simply blacklist everyone from googlemail and it blocks
about 80% of it. Still a bunch of the "good guys" around.

Are there other forums where a newbie can sit back and soak all this
stuff in?  There's no activity here.

You have to do a lot of research on the net to find anything worth
while.  Since the dot com bust most of the activity has dried up.

This group is really for certs, there is a great regular Cisco group for
asking questions, features, function etc, hell, people even ask cert
questions in there from time to time.  comp.dcom.sys.cisco

I still get my questions asked and answered via Google Mail.  What am
I supposed to do, get another service?  I've got ATT DSL and news
would be a separate service that I would have to purchase.  Not
everyone using Google Mail is a spammer.

While it is true that not all googlemail posters are spammers, 99.999% of
them are, look at the spam in the groups, your see. You are also not posting
using a googlemail address, you are posting using a yahoo.com address which
is not filtered.
