Dear "Computer Guru",

And :blink: do you seriously not know who owns this mailing list?????

By "owns", I mean the list mom that's responsible for its day-to-day operation. Do you seriously think that, before today, they understood that a third-party is claiming ownership of emails posted to this list?

It sounds more like you have bone to pick with Nabble (which I just
heard about for the first time ever), wanna explain?

I just heard about it too. You seem to agree that the terms are ridiculous, so why are you being an apologist for them?

I find it ridiculous, but not threatening. I think its stupid on their behalf, but if I can use it to my advantage, I don't complain. :-)

CG, Charles,

Nabble's  use of content is not much different from Google's
exploitation  of  UseNet. The difference is magnitude...  of
the company and the content used (or 'scraped', depending on
your  point-of-view).  By  coincidence, I happened  to  have
blogged  about it this morning. What bothers me the most are
the  copyright  footers and the poor  contributions  (input)
that result from a poor UI. Many of us who access UseNet the
normal  way  just killfile/score/filter all G2  posts.  That
issue of copyrights, fair use, and the rest of that malarkey
was  explained rather well in Brad Templeton's classic essay
on  copyright  myths. It probably covers everything that  we
argue  about---something  that  could soon  devolve  into  a

Best wishes,


PS  - @CG -- liked that new tool, but a shame that your site
went down at the most crucial time.
