Maybe a little too private. I prefer the food group. I realize you're having problems there but I see them as minuscule compared to what's going on in the other group. This place has no soul. No yet. Maybe it never will. I do not want to take sides in your disputes in the food group. But I would if I followed the dispute and thought you were right. Anyway, I posted into the food group years ago but it was not my favorite spot. I only had 3 or 4, never wanted to delve into all of them. But I have looked at some just for the techno aspect of it, to see how long they've been defunct and sometimes even wonder how or way they became defunct, in much the manner that one might ask, "How did it happen?", the minute they hear about someone dying. If a person wanted to, they could probably make a study of a select few defunct groups, studying the number of posts, the group at it's peak, and its diminishment over time, trying to find out at what point exactly the group began its decline. I want these newsgroups as a source of absolute abandonment of purpose. I mean total freedom to say whatever you want, and as a plus to sometimes say it in an entertaining or interesting way. In other words I'll pop into this joint from time to time, but for now I'm "using" the food groups and don't think I should have to abandon them on the basis of your problems with them. By the way I see you post only at select times to certain groups. I sometimes suspect you have over a hundred groups you go to and you take them in order so that your visits to each group seem a pleasant surprise to others in the group, like maybe you're been in the hospital or visiting another country, when in reality you've been going to 100 different groups at the rate of just one per day, never overstaying your welcome - well, maybe sometimes - and never hesitation to get lost when you get the vibe that maybe people are getting just a bit tired of your routine. This same "once every so often" approach can be used in real life like a guy going to 5 or 6 poolrooms in a big city but staying in each only a week, so that every 5 weeks or so his return to another poolroom is seen as some sort of historic returning bordering on the "He is risen" routine.
