I'm not sure that's entirely true. The last, and successful, RFD was supported
by people who took pains not to take sides in the flame war, and to (correctly
as it turned out) reassure people that there would be little or no effect on
ukra. Of course, the impetus came from the American, and I don't think anyone
else was enormously optimistic about the value of the group. It now ranks as
one of the many uk.* groups that remains just about useful enough not to be
deleted. Text Usenet is not, of course, a growing medium. Not least becasue it
is hard to see how it can provide a significant profit to anyone.
