Just a quickie ... is anyone here still active in any of the Usenet newsgroups?

Why am I asking? I used to be a Usenet junkie, but now I hardly ever browse the groups there. Cyburbia gets the occasional mention in the Usenet groups, but if more people see the URL, we might get some more visitors -- folks tired of the increasing dreck, flames, chain letters and Evidence Eliminator ads.

Am I saying "go ye forward, and spam the name of Cyburbia onto Usenet?" NO WAY! If you do frequent any of the groups, though, you might want to include the Cyburbia Forums URL -- http://www.cyburbia.org/forums -- in your .sig file.

More people = more discussion = more planning geekery = more fun!
