It's a sign of the times; Usenet is nearly as old as we,
the crumblies who still use it, are.

WTH, I vote for a disreputable old age. Wibble...

Yebbut it still has a "flavour" of it's own. I may be an old crank but
it's still not the same as all the wonder-apps that show up, is all the
rage for a couple of months/years - MySpace, F*cebook, Vine, Snapchat,
Second World, Instagr*m, tiktok and what have you.
Maybe it's just that all those others was tuned from the start to (or
very soon after was changed into) profitability as the primary design goal.
Or maybe the yout' of today just don't want to read... (They had better
keep off my lawn if they know what's good for them.)

I don't know Jack Benny, but 39 is a nice age. I remember it well. The
Y2K panic was just starting to set in... A memories.
