Save The Internet: USA bill; weds Apr 26th, 2006

http://www.savetheinternet.com

There is more info and A PETITION at moveon...
Easy to sign and give your two cents (and to your own reps in the process).
http://civic.moveon.org/alerts/savetheinternet.html

There's a nice quick video of what this bill means to you...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9jHO...page=1&t=t&f=b

Didn't think it was real? We've witnessed the deregulation of mainstream
media behemoths from 1996 to the present. They can own your town if they
like; in TV and in print. The internet is next.

Spread the word if you are so inclined. This is a good time for last minute
emailings. TIA -

Mark

Cross Posting is good

And looking at the list of NGs that this will go to
- it is more like Spam-Posting

Agreed, also depending on the type of newsgroup. I tend to lurk only in
support newsgroups, where cross-posting is very bad. The reason being, when
a question is answered in one group, in other groups people will often waste
a lot of time answering it again.

Surely you mean Multi-Posting

- that is so annoying - you answer the question then move onto the
next NG and find it better answered

Cross-Posting is optimal
- provided the NGs are related

Otherwise it leads to interlingual battles <g><g>

Quite often it amounts to the same thing.

I am sure you know there are significant differnces between the two.
One wastes bandwidth (multi-post) and the other does not. This is in
addition to that replying to a cross post is different than doing so
for a multi post.

Here is more:

It appears your problem here is strictly cross-posting.

That's certainly not the same thing. You must realize that a message is
comprised of more than the text you read. Do you honestly fail to
comprehend the differences between multi- and cross-posting?

As a follow-up, you state that you see these as "quite often" the same
thing. Playing along, that implies there are situations where _you_ see
them as different. What might those be?

Yes, I said "quite often" because they both often result in the same
consequences.

I'm not interested in any debate about this. I just don't have the time, nor
see any point in doing so.
