I think you found it...

Though before posting you should make every effort to search the
archives of this group for the answer. Most questions (especially
beginner questions) have been asked and answered before. You can find
the archives at http://groups.google.com/group/micro...s?lnk=sg&hl=en

Thanks,

Seth Rowe

In addition to Seth:
It's always appreciated to choose the right newsgroup. Please note that
questions that affect all languages based on the .Net Framework should be
posted to the appropriate Framework group
(microsoft.public.dotnet.framework[.*]). For example, if you want to know
how to close a Form, this (VB.Net) group is not the right place to ask.
Calling the Form's Close method is the answer. Then, if you wouldn't know
how to call it in VB.Net, this group is the right place.

So, a basic rule in the usenet (the network maintaining the entirety of all
newsgroups) is: Don't post to a group if the question is not specific to the
group's topic. Unfortunatelly, many people don't know this. In other words,
as a reader of a VB.Net group, I don't want to be flooded by not-VB.Net
specific questions, and as a reader of a Framework group, I don't want to be
bothered by language specific questions.

Visual Studio specific questions are posted to one of the
microsoft.public.vstudio.* groups.

Armin,

As you probably know, we still disagree about this.

By instance, if somebody does not know how to close an application, how I
can than find which newsgroup. If the language is VB, than this is in my
idea the first newsgroup.

If it is about by instance security settings outside the language, than it
are in my idea the framework newsgroups.

Armin,

As you probably know, we still disagree about this.
I don't see any space for discussions about it, because how it works is
nothing that we have to decide. I only tried to help by explaining how it
works (because the OP seemed to be new to newsgroups).
By instance, if somebody does not know how to close an application,
how I can than find which newsgroup. If the language is VB, than
this is in my idea the first newsgroup.
With respect to the readers of the groups, every poster should carefully
choose which group to post to. No problem at all to ask here, if it was then
allowed to point him/her to the right group. Unfortunatelly, it is not
allowed. (you remember that I left the group for months because I was tired
of reading all these OT questions? Mutual consideration should also take the
standpoint of the readers into account, not only of the posters. As I know,
you don't evaluate the reader's standpoint very high.)

You still don't understand that this group is not the target because someone
*uses* VB. This group is for VB *specific* questions. That's the reason why
the *.languages.* groups exist. They are there for language specific
questions. Or why do you think the distinction is made? If I have problems
with my screen, I don't post questions about them here just because I am
using my screen for VB development. (Again, if somebody doesn't know it
better, everyone is welcome to post questions here, without any doubts
- but then everyone should also have the right to point to the right group)
If it is about by instance security settings outside the language,
than it are in my idea the framework newsgroups.
I agree. :)
