"Trolls will show no understanding of Usenet etiquette or Netiquette."

Our Troll thinks the charter is meaningless and is a top-poster to
boot.

I realize I am not a big contributer to this group but one of the
first things I did upon my return to the hobby was look up usenet
groups devoted to freshwater and planted aquariums. I can tell you
from the perspective of a usenet veteran/rec.aquaria newbie that what
I found was disheartening. I can only imagine how many people come to
the group looking for on-topic discussion and leave after lurking a
bit.

Anyway, just my two cents.


Just to add mine, I used usenet a lot years ago, am now on the point
of giving up. Some people seem to me to be mentally unwell in their
persistence and ruin the forums for anyone else
