Google, the new de facto website of record for Usenet, disagrees.

But they do about 10 things totally wrong with Google groups that
I'd've fixed in my spare time in my first week if they'd hired me back

So if they want it to work, they know where to find me.


P.S.  Did I mention? Google's distributed systems are managed with
Python scripts.
