    Default OT: Has Eternal September Hiccuped?

    I posted a few things yesterday that showed up on my news reader, but
    don't seem to be on Google and I haven't seen a response to them from
    anyone. Does anyone know if this is just my computer or an
    eternal-september deal?

    Your post is here so the answer is no. It might have had a problem
    but if it did it's fixed. I just looked at google and there's nothing
    there for two days. This is why some of us don't understand why
    people use google.

    What is on of the messages you think is missing and we can check out
    news servers to see if they showed up?

    I'm pretty sure if there was a problem, it was yesterday. I don't
    use Google except to search (I miss dejanews). Or did you mean there
    was no Google record of any r.f.c activity over the last two days?

    I tried posting several times through ES but was given an error message
    about an illegal header and the posting was aborted. I copied the
    message and then posted through Google Groups. ES has been pretty
    sluggish for the past few days. Don't even ask me about Usenet-news.net! :-)

    OTOH, something is going on with Google Groups which seems to have had a
    major hiccup in the past few days. Hardly anything is getting posted on GG.

    The current state of Usenet is not looking so good...

    Sluggish response and occasional time-outs from my 2 servers. It could
    be my T-bird reader. I'm not sure why that would be - I delete all
    messages over 30 days old. A lot of the times it's just faster to use
    Google Groups.

    I use it as my backup posting server when eternal-september is down in
    addition to using it as an archive. I just logged in and checked.
    Nothing for two days on any of the groups I subscribe to in the Goggle
    interface and my profile does not list any posts in the last two days.

    Google burps every so often. Given that my account is free I get more
    than I pay for from that account.

    OK, I got it. Usenet is not looking good from your end. Bummer.

    Maybe it's a good thing if we aren't getting the usual amount of spam.

    My server is just fine. No problems (yet).

    It looks like most of the posters today are not coming in through Google
    Groups, It could be some sort of attack on the site. As you know, the
    animosity towards GG is strong.

    OTOH, I've never noticed much spam recently in Usenet or GG. Not like
    the old days at least...

    Have you tried to read rfc via GG? The spam is horrendous - I just
    looked. "Replica watches" and "work from home" are #18 & #19.

    I go on Google Groups frequently. What's your definition of "horrendous
    spam?" 10% spam? 5%? 2%? Near as I can figure, this group averages about
    330 posts a day so at 2% spamage, you're talking about 6.6 posts daily.
    I think you might be exaggerating your point just a tiny bit. :-)

    I don't see any spam on the first page mostly because I do a topic list
    view which tends to list the most active topics first and pretty much
    moves idle topics down the list. The reason I see no spam is because
    nobody responds to spam and it gets down-listed rapidly. Google Groups
    users can report spam by simply hitting a button - I doubt you can do
    that with your reader. My guess is that you don't want to be hitting
    that button without good cause - Google ain't gonna take false reporting
    too kindly.

    If my memory serves me right, spam was a major problem a decade ago.
    That was horrendous, alright. These days it's a cakewalk to avoid spam.

    Ranee - same for me. I reactivated my Thunderbird and put eternal
    September in as the server and it's running just fine.
    Google is not even contactable for stuff like this. Infuriating.

    Oh, no... it's more than that. That's why I avoid the GG interface
    unless I have to.

    Or it could be that GG is having problems and Google hasn't committed the
    necessary resources to properly maintain and control GG, as usual.

    Usenet is not an entity like Google and can't control anything. It's a
    collection of forums in news format.

    E-S does a very good job of filtering spam upstream.

    So then you really don't know if there is a lot of spam on GG or not. You're
    only saying you don't see it because of the way you view posts.

    ROFLMAO.... really? Obviously you've never tried to report anything to them.
    They ignore just about everything. Complaining to them is the most pointless
    exercise anywhere on the Internet.

    And what are they gonna do on GG if you make a false report? They don't make
    any effort to control access to mail or news. You reset your IP address, get
    a new GG ID and post away. Why do you think there is so much spam? They
    don't do anything to remove it, they don't do anything to control abusers,
    and they don't do anything to control access.
