For your own safety USE CAUTION to post on these usenet
newsgroups.

Posters are being impersonated and verbally abused.
Headers are being forged in other people's names.
There are forged messages with obscene content.
You can be their next victim.

Net criminals are attacking this newsgroup and other newsgroups
with a new
freeware program that allows attackers to commit the following
crimes
against anyone who posts.

They can EDIT THE BODIES AND HEADERS OF ANY POSTING, changing
the text of posters with the text of the abuser's choice. The
name of this software is HipCrime NewsAgent.

You can join troll free groups at:

I understand those that choose to use the google forum, however I see
them as surrendering. The Usenet is a great way to share ideas. It
is worth saving. I feel the best way to serve them is to continue to
do as we have always done, but ignore trolls, don't respond, let them
talk to themselves.

They are easy to spot, their words reveal their nature.

It does take a bit of sorting to find legitimate posts, but the Usenet
is too valuable to just surrender.

IMO
