you may have a hard time getting it adopted in
comp.someting.someting.mysql, sorry its ben so long since 'vel
looked at the news tree i've forgotten what it looks like these
so this leaves that other monstrosity, ummm, sorry, hierachary
alt....whatever.mysql, how are the proposer of such a setup
going to manage teh spam content .. makie the newsgroup closed
or moderated ?
these days peole are turning away from newsgroups in droves
because of teh spam problems .. thye are coming to
mailinglists, even these are not totaly immune, even if they
are closed and or moderated .. expesially if thye get to a size
where it is not possble for one person to do the moderation
effectively because of the bulk involved.
i'm not against a newsgroup format, or a mail-to-news, hell i
ran my own news servers and several mail-to-news gateways and
several dozen open mailinglist, and about 6 or 8 moderated and
completely closed (read secure) mailinglists .. for someting
like 10 years. i stoped recsently because of failing health and
the onslaught of what is starting to look like ms or msd the drs
are not sure, yet. so please excuse my spelling, its getting
hard to type, especially when tired.
we have a nice thing going here, it would be a shame to have it
trashed my spam .. or the sideffects of too much work, too much
cost for the bulk trafic (here in australia we pay fro minutes
used and bytes sent in and out .. i'm sure its the same
overseas for anyting more trivial than a personal email
account, as most mailing lists soon develop into, in a
relevtively short time.
just some options, ideas that have yet to surface regarding
movinf mysql to a newsgroup or includeing a mailinglist-to-news
thats neat another jonathan who spells jonathan correctly, grin.
