    Default rec.food.historic what happened to it?

    That was a pretty active group last time i looked (many, many years ago) but
    nowadays seems abandoned. Anyone knows if there is something similar
    somewhere else?

    I can only provide this datapoint: I checked it last year and it was dead
    then. So it's not something that just happened.

    That's too bad
    Well, for what it's worth, and if there is no other place for this subject
    there is a forum on my site (www.theoldecookerybook.com). I was hoping
    though that the fairly large community (back then anyway) simply had
    migrated to a web forum somewhere that someone knows about.

    Still hoping someone knows where....

    I only noticed a handful of SPAM posts. Most posts are from long time
    posters with names I recognize.

    Without going back and checking exactly, the date range is from sometime in
    2005 through June, 2008.

    So perhaps a post a day, average. That reads: dead. It was probably
    spam or kookery, too.

    Okay, dead. However, most did not look like spam or kookey.

    i don't think he implied it was 'something that just happened.' can you
    account for your whereabouts at that time?

    I did not imply that he implied that; I only placed the demise of the
    group to a time earlier than the last year.

    There an image of someome spamming on the Bayeaux Tapestry. Naturally,
    they had a different name for it back then. That era marked the beginning
    of very heavy French influence on the English language, but it would be
    centuries before the language picked up any borrows from the Hormelians.

    I don't have the impression that they defected to anywhere else.
    If we want to see some posts there, why don't we start some
    threads. You could do that.... :-)
