I just noticed something interesting about the tagline added to the
orcon users posts.

"Unlimited-Uncensored-Secure"

Unlimited?
http://www.newsfeeds.com/outsource.htm says " Each IP is limited to 350
MB/day/server"
and from here,
http://www.newsfeeds.com/faq.htm
"There is also a simultaneous connection limit of three streams per
server per member."

Uncensored?
well, would we know? seriously, they dont seem to censor things,
although there are always rumours.

"Total Privacy via Encryption"
What encryption?

Maybe they outsource to the Telecom marketing department ?

Didn't someone in here say they're supposed to be canning that? I
seldom post from home (Where I have Orcon ADSL) so I'd forgotten all
about that stupid tagline.

Obviously the banner is appended to all the messages regardless of their
origin and refer to options that depend on the package selected by the
customer.

well it is still there.

I was thinking about how they say about the low number of users there
were using the orcon nntp server, and I thought... hmmmm, I wonder how
many use news.individual.net as i personally know of 8 Orcon customers
who use it, because they found orcons service so bad.

the worst thing about them is that it makes it look like you are
recommending them yourself.

check out your last post for an example.
