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. -Brian

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

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.

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.

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.
