More thoughts on the news group mass extinction
I suspect that news providers that have described themselves as "uncensored" are uncensored no longer. The United States, in the present political and legal environment has been eroding what we thought were constitutional rights. The sad thing is that much of this comes from the far left, not just the fundamentalist Christians. I would guess, though, that the prime movers in causing news providers to drop news groups is the copyright enforcement threat, by way of lawsuits, and the full-court press by law enforcement. The same thing is happening in Canada, Britain, and the Netherlands. So, we end up bidding alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.hornyrob a fond farewell. I am sure that there are other groups that I just not tested yet. We might as well be living in the People's Republic of China.
