I've lurked in these boards a few times in the past.
My schedule only allows for so much goofing off time so I've not posted here before, but the people here seem very cordial and knowledgable
Usenet allows me to use software that allows for filters and spell checkers, it's easier to make portable, and can be read offline.
I've mostly been active in the other message boards (300+ post) so I'm still unsure of what sort of expectations there are here, but with an unmoderated usenet group, there is no one person (or group) in charge. (It's not this board I'm worried about)
If people don't want to hear what you have to say, they can add a filter to their software.
I'm hoping that the usenet group will introduce the hobby to those already involved with usenet, who are unwilling to use a hypertext based discussion board.
I'm a subscriber to the Yahoo list and have been speaking about my ideas for a usenet group to the other subscribers.
Please, by all means inform me if you see cause for concern.
