do you insist on including messages from external newsgroups in this forum - to bulk up content with some serious discussion?

I think this *unregistered* (grrr) is referring to some of the old style posts, that people keep dragging up from about 18 months ago, where people replied through email to post.

Me again!

What I'm talking about is that this forum automatically includes messages from another message board on Usenet and presents them as if they were posted here. Maybe you've seen a dicussion taking place and decided to join in and yet no-one has replied to your posts? That will be because the actual discussion is taking place elsewhere and we can't see your posts!

Its just a thing that I've found interesting in a forum that claims to be so popular!

For example this thread:

http://www.uk-learning.net/showthrea...light=messages

originates elsewhere and yet appears here!

if you look who began the post, you'll know exactly where it came from.

if you regestered, youd notice that the same names keep poping up, and then you can have a proper discussion.

We did this a while back (stopped about a year and half ago?). We had separate forums that allowed people to connect to usenet, post messages and get them relayed back and forth. It allowed people who couldn't read usenet to connect it (it was before GoogleGroups but after DejaNews).

We stopped it because it wasn't really worth the hassle once GoogleGroups came out.

We might bring it back if people want it.

Thanks for clearing that up! I was just interested becuase I thought that moderating our posts from Usenet would have been a nightmare for you!

No problem

We did seem to get a great deal of spam from Usenet that didn't appear on the normal usenet pages. I guess it's because what goes into Google is moderated by the respective teams of moderators.

Anyhow, hope that you have fun on your newsgroup. Please feel free to post here as well should you wish to.
