Newsgroup Reviews including alt.politics.bush

301 files from newsone.net newsgroup posting activities. (Model
format)

60 Newsgroup postings were deleted, after 15 hours.
There were claims of major hacker attack,
which turned to abashed embarassment.

It turned out that the NSP owner,
had sent out a world-wide posting.
It invited all users, who had forgotten their passwords,
to just leave it blank. Then a new confirmation password
would be sent. Cinderela was invited to the ball.

Thank you,

Big Bertha Thing format

Anybody heard of the fly-paper trap?
Where all the flies are collected, in an unsightly mess,
hanging from the kitchen ceiling.
The expensive version is the lizard with a long tongue,
that retracts after each catch.

Take an uncensored version of a usenet newsgroup,
show the subject line of each thread header,
with the total number of postings and the net
number of postings after extracts.
Put the total number of extracts, in the first line,
at the top of the list of postings.
Anyone wishing to search the extracts clicks on it
and finds each person extracted with 2 lines each.
The first line shows the number of thread headers
and the second the number of replies.
Further clicks go down to posting level.

Extract everyone with more than 1000 postings
on any single newsgroup, from all newsgroups.

Examples of the fly-paper trap can be found on:-

Big Bertha Thing liberty

Milton (1644) from The Liberty of Unlicensed Printing
What should ye do then,
should ye suppress all this flowery crop of knowledge and new light
sprung up
and yet springing daily in this city?
Should ye set an oligarchy of twenty engrossers over it,
to bring a famine upon our minds again,
when we shall know nothing but what is measured to us by their
bushell?
Believe it, Lords and Commons! they who counsel you to such a
suppression,
do as good as bid ye suppress yourselves; and I will soon show how.
If it be desired to know the immediate cause of all this free writing
and free speaking,
there cannot be assigned a truer than your own mild, and free, and
humane government:
it is the liberty, Lords and Commons,
which your own valorous and happy counsels have purchased us;
liberty, which is the nurse of all great wits;
this is that which hath rarified and enlightened our spirits like the
influence of heaven;
this is that which hath enfranchised, enlarged,
and lifted up our apprehensions degrees above themselves.
Ye cannot make us now less capable, less knowing,
less eagerly pursuing of the truth, unless ye first make yourselves,
that made us so, less the lovers, less the founders of our true
liberty.
We can grow ignorant again, brutish, formal, slavish, as ye found us;
but you then must first become that which ye cannot be,
oppressive, arbitrary, and tyrannous, as they were from whom ye have
freed us.
That our hearts are now more capacious,
our thoughts more erected to the search and expectations of greatest
and exactest things,
is the issue of your own virtue propagated in us; ye cannot suppress
that,
unless ye reinforce an abrogated and merciless law,
that fathers may despatch at will their own children.
And who shall then stick closest to ye, and excite others?
not he who takes up arms for coat and conduct, and his four nobles of
Danegeld.
Although I dispraise not the defence of just immunities,
yet love my peace better, if that were all. Give me the liberty to
know,
to utter, and to argue freely, according to conscience, above all
liberties.
