That's not right either. It would be fgurga.vrtyujk.vgarvrg. But that
would be taken care of by the time it was voted on. Unless you really
meant alt.fgurga.vrtyujk.vgarvrg.

(Seriously: (not really...) This group sounds like it's for people
that are fans of furry things. What's quicker my u key, or the lifetime
of this group?

David, that was a subjunctive case and should have been "I'm not crazy, I only
wish I were." And for the record, I thought it was fgvrga.vgarvrg.vrtyujk
too.

I suggest that you keep your cats away from my jhereg, he'll eat
anything smaller than he is, and he's really hungry lately...

so, what's your cutest furry tail?

a good one:
my sweetie had a very loving cat named Mojo
one night, they were having cornish game hens. mojo was
still a 4 month old kitten. They'd left the carcasses
on the table. The way my sweetie describes it...mojo
hopped up on the table and grabbed a carcass which was
larger than she was.
apparently it was rather riotous seeing her try and drag
it across the kitchen floor.

Maybe this is a newsgroup for ferret fans! They are furry, and since they
are illegal in California, the newsgroup would have to be secret...

The newsgroup is for readers and fans of a subgenre of fiction dealing
with anthropomorphic characters. Publications which publish appropriate
articles and fiction include THE CENTAURS GATHERUM NEWSLETTER, ALBEDO
anthropomorphics, CRITTERS, YARF!, BIRTHRIGHT, and many other professional
and amateur publications too numerous to mention here. This newsgroup is
in part a replacement for alt.fan.albedo and alt.birthright (although I do
not know if rmgroups will be issued for those or not; I didn't start them
or this group either, for that matter) as traffic was too low in those two
groups, and they were too specialized as well.
So perhaps in some ways, you're right; it is for people who are fans
of furry things. (Also feathery. Birds count. :-) ) However, you didn't get
the point, probably because you're not aware of any of these publications.
(Sort of like rec.radio.ham would be confusing to anyone not familiar with
the term "ham" for amateur radio broadcaster... 'is it radio made of ham,
or people who ham it up on the radio?')

Think I passed you at MFF last year. Maybe we should do more than pass
in the hall.

Not before they buy stuff from us though! A couple of people joined
Discod and picked out a few things from my art vault. :)

I may have seen you. The 20th MFF was a bit more busy than their first
year. One just has to prearrange to meet before the event in order to find
who you want to find.
Aren't you pretty much been of staff at MFF for the last several years?
Makes spare time scarce...

Freddy,
crosses fingers that MFF happens this year.

I did post a link a couple of weeks ago, an invite to join the YiffNet
Discod server. That's where I post the cover pages of stuff forsale and
arrange payment and shipping.

I claim my gerymuzzle status and invoke failing-memory super-power. ;)

You could put a signature at the bottom of your postings. ForteAgent 7.20
must surely allow that. Put your link there then every post will show it.
See how my signature works?

Freddy,
signatures don't have to make sense.
