The hell you say!

u r 2 l337 4 m3. (but at least you translated for us lamerz)

The mailing list would be an obvious choice for someone who can't
wrap his head 'round a newsgroup.  Honestly, complaining about usenet
with a mailing list available is like complaining about Linux
with AOL available. (hint, hint)

You sure this isn't an EZBoard advert?  Besides, how many maling
lists are you a part of? Are you maled frequently?

(couldn't resist)

All in favor? ... Motion declined. Next order of business?

Whoa, hold it right there! I _totally_ forgot that this was all some
kind of popularity contest. We should throw a Pythonista dance!

    [ Meanwhile, at the 1st Annual EZBoard  ]
    [ Dance, trouble is brewing...          ]
    "Nice class you got there."
    "Thanks. Hacked it up last week."
    "Mind if I inherit from it sometime?"
    "Um, sure."
    . . .
    "Did you hear the DJ play 'YMCA'?"
    "Yeah, right after 'Lady in Red'."
    "This isn't as cool as the EZBoard (TM) post said it would be."
    "No it isn't. All the women went to the usenet party."


Your boredom is not cause per se to change the society at large.
