No such luck. Big Mladen is watching you. Just kidding. I have spot checked few posters on this group and figured out that my net is too broad. I have since removed Google groups from my filter and limited filtering to "after the fact" mode.

Yes, but the analogy is false. It is false because with Oracle server, the purpose of putting things into the database is faster development and better performance. The purpose of using a fat NNTP client is the functionality which I don't have with web clients like Google groups. The functionality that I am talking about is, of course, filtering. You cannot filter out articles with the Google Groups interface. You can with all of the fat clients I listed. Last but not least, I wish you a happy New Year.
