I just thought that people here might know something about it, especially if
it had been brought up before, related to either this or any other group.
Like it or not, Google has had a profound effect on the shape of usenet,

traffic web interface. I would have thought that the censoring of any
legitimate Big-8 newsgroup by them would be of interest to people here...
