    It's pointless. There's already 1000s of dead, unused
    NGs -- no need for another soon-to-be dead vanity
    group. Start a Yahoo mail list instead.

  4. At least, you'll need to download and install Service Pak 2.

    It's easy to start a newsgroup. You just post a "control: newgroup"

    It's hard to get your newsgroup on any servers, even your own, unless
    you follow the appropriate rules for the hierarchy.

    You can find more info by googling "start a newsgroup" but this seems
    to be a pretty good summary.

    Joel, obviously you're into fine distinctions. Good.

    Can "we" (TINW) now have your assurance that you've got the 'raw' NG
    basics right - in terms of *not* posting messages with attachments ?

    You're the only regular poster without a clean track record on this
    matter. This post is a clean post and a valid reply, of which I'd like
    to see many more.
