it used to but i thikn the gating system has stopped, gotten
broken or otherwise just isn't doing the gating any more...
I had reports from a user that the feed on my bbs was dried up
while on other bbs's he visits there were extra posts... just
looking into that now.
FWIW: it used to come in here with the following tear and origin lines... these
from the last post seen from the apparently gateing system in july...
-!- Synchronet 3.15a-Linux NewsLink 1.92-mlp
! Origin: NetKnow News (1:2320/105.97)
-!- SBBSecho 2.12-Linux

i've invalidated them for this posting... looks like something happened over at
1:2320/105... i'm not sure what's going on over there on mike's system... i haven't seen or heard from him in a few months...
yup... but then again, it was kinda boring with the crap posts
coming from the usenet side of the fence, too...
I'm 50/50, there are still some good newsgroups with interesting
content, but agree there's a lot with dross in them too.
agreed... it really is too bad that the alt.* groups became such a wasteland...
i mean they were kinda designed for such but then came the mess foisted by at least one person whereby you can't even remove a group created by accident because their system immediately recreates it... someone else's political carp,
ya know? [smh]
