So stop going to the google home page. Are you using a browser that doesn't support bookmarks? Is this really the most serious problem that you have with google?

Works fine for me.

That's your opinion. Those that understand the issues don't agree with you.

Ah, a windoze user brainwashed by m$. You are making a ridiculous assumption; there is, in fact, no need to read, or even download, every message posted in order to use a news reader. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find even a single user that does so.


The joke is on you.

You're right; he should have asked you to FOAD.

Nu, so what is the outp[ut from his editor, chopped liver?

Now there's a non sequitor! So far you have not given a single reason why anybody but you should care. There are better places for them to put their resources, like fixing their defaults to match Usenet conventions.

Oh, BTW, this is the last time that I will see any of your articles; you seem to be willfully ignorant. I'm about to introduce you to yet another feature that news clients. have. Tin (sic), meet Mr. Filter.
