Haven't accessed rec. for at least a decade now.

Fond memories, but pre-porn days as I recall.

Didn't most unmoderated newsgroups get spammed out? It was that way 10 years ago last I checked.

No reflection on the sport, just the open nature of the newsgroups. Too bad, but now there's internet fora to choose from, albeit kinda sucky ones (no offense to iws).

At least one unmoderated cancer forum did not. By far our bigger issue is legitimate members waging baseless, often outright insane, personal attacks on anyone and everyone. PLONKing is the only cure for the most rabid violators. Moderators are not a panacea. Some are too biased, too dumb, or just too lazy to do a good job.

When we first started WindJunkie.net 10 years ago, we put up a Forum, and had to shut it down in 2 weeks, even though I was moderating it. Lots of these people use automatic programs that seek out message boards & post on them. Towards the end I would sit there deleting the porn links and new ones were popping up almost as fast as I could delete them.

They should find these fuckers and cut off their thumbs.

Amen! I had this same experience when we originally opened up the Utah Windsurfing Association web page. Eventually we went to PHP, and
registered users which pretty much thwarted the spammers, but not entirely.
