I guess I am not the only person who has given uk.legal a try only to find
that it's a lost cause because of trolls (I keep retrying every now and
then). There's also uk.philosphy.humanism; apart from nice posts from Peter
and Lance, it is regularly flooded by full-length article from
AntiMulticulture. These are not tagged and they are heavily corssposted,
which makes filtering hard.
