Default Google made Usenet popular

Now it is Google taking it down.
If enough groups ban Google posters we can have Usenet back.

All I did was to use my score file and killed googlegroups.
that got rid of 99.9% of the crap posts. Then I killscored @gmail.com,and
got rid of those.Things are better now.

The only time I see them is from somebody else's response to them.
if no one responds to the googleposters,then they will fade away.

"Google made Usenet popular"?

I guess that depends on your perspective.
Usenet has been popular for some of us for a lot longer
than Google has even existed.

They sure aren't making Usenet popular now and haven't
been for some time.

I'm not aware of any other gateway to Usenet where the admins
refuse to do anything about spam coming from their domain.

Google is providing a free uncontrolled gateway.
They should be blocked until they wake up.

Sorry for being OT.
