SURVEY: Binaries on Alt.Food.Barbecue
 
In the original post he asked to answer the following survey:

I would like to see if there is objection to posting of BBQ Pictures to
this group.

I answered and I think some others also answered YES as in yes I object.

Many others have answered NO and also explained NO binaries in a
non-binary group.

I hope he does not get confused and think that cause there were allot of
NO's and ignore the explanations, that the NO means does not object.

Happy Q'en,
BBQ

Widow, whose presence I have missed for some lengthy time now, is a major
treat too.


Speaking of Miranda...

.... where have all of the women gone that once posted on this group? In
addition to Miranda, I particularly miss Ginger's contributions.

Come back, ladies. We promise to work on that toilet seat thing that annoys
you so much.

Just say "no" to binaries on afb

While it's obvious the current afb denizens are overwhelmingly against
having binaries posted here, there is one additional argument I haven't

seen
made that is probably relevant.

Now that I have a broadband connection I'll go to a binaries group without
hesitation. But if I had a 56Kb (or slower) dial-up, I wouldn't likely
spend any time on a binaries group. And if I went to a non-binaries

group,
clicked on a message and a giant download started I would be, shall we

say,
chagrined.

===

Don't forget the fact that if I send a binary to this group, it simply never
arrives. It's *NOT* a binary NG. Simple answer to a simple problem.

Dunno. It hasn't seemed to be an impediment to the folks posting viruses
masquerading as porographic screen-savers. Those would have to be
considered binaries.

Perhaps the news server one attaches to can (but doesn't necessarily)
exercise some control.

Like I said at the outset - Dunno. (Pretty much sums up my entire take I
just about everything - "I don't know".)

Didn't get a rise out of me. Still, it would have been
more on topic to have posted it to alt.tasteless. GDR.

Shaddup! It wasn't a g*dd*mned sarong, it was a pakhama!


I hear you can get that cleared up with a series of shots
now.

Some of yer food posts look pretty tasteless, too! So there!


Have you tried licking the screen harder?


Happy F***ing New Year, anyhow.

Airnews will not carry AFB because it's been rmgrouped
for lack of published charter. For that reason I subscribed
to Teranews for ABF only. Retention is a few days at best,
but it's free.

That's a fact Bill. There are actually rules published for
the administration of usenet and some ISP's follow them. The
initiation of a new group requires the publication of a new
group post including a description, charter and probable
traffic figures. The newgroup post for ABF has been lost in the
computer jungle and cannot be found.

You have that right Thomas. Some follow stringent rules. Others
just don't bother. Airnews is so parochial you'd think they
are apprenticed to the Pope, while DirecWay doesn't know what
control means.

I'm sorry, Brick, I'm missing your point. I have _what_ right?

TFM® was seeming to imply that he could try to send a binary to afb, but
that it wouldn't arrive. All I was saying was that there must be _some_
news servers that allow binaries onto afb. Otherwise, how would we get all
of the .scr and .exe files posted on this group that purport to be one thing
(nude pictures, system updates) but are actually something else (viruses).

I've never tried to post a binary anywhere. So I don't know _what_ my news
server would allow.

P.S. Ain't lookin' to pick a fight. While I'm all hopped up on "gently
sparkling" fruit drink, I just don't understand what you think I said.

Hmmm.........I *have* actually sent picture files to this group before. I
did it while intoxicated and under the assumption that I was at the *other*
NG, "ABF"

Though I sent them, I saw nothing arrive. If memory serves me correctly, I
even received some sort of notification about the bounce. Again, this is
all most likely carrier dependent.

They seem to be doing their job as well when it comes to keeping the scr.'s
and exe.'s out of my NG's as well. Now if they could only do as well with
the mail. I still get about 50 or more of the "Microsoft" update emails a
day.

No offense taken at all Thomas. I'm sorry that I wasn't able
to make myself clear. I was trying to say that you are correct
that some ISP's do allow binaries to get through to non-binary
groups and some do not. TFM® uses Roadrunner and they apparently
follow stringent guidelines as does Airnews. Others such as
Direcway do not. In fact Direcway is so bad about their admin-
istration especially SPAM control that they are frequently
blocked completely by more competent ISP's. That's a PITA for
me when I try to email my friends and they frequently don't get
the mail. The error msg is invariably 'mail refused by 'their'
ISP due to poor SPAM control. So you might ask, "Why do I use
such a sorry ISP?" There is no other broadband available to me.
If I could get DSL, I would.

No cable for you , and you're closer to Tampa than I am?

Hard to believe a city of this size would be without highspeed.

I can get roadrunner at the new house (cable guy's coming Saturday) and it's
6 or 7 miles farther away from Tampa.

Tell me where you live (in an email of course) and I'll see what I can dig
up. You've *gotta* have more options than that.

The expiration time on Alt.Binaries.Food is preposterous.
Being an alt.binaries group, it gets lumped in with the handfuls of PORN groups.
The pix folks post of their food porn only last long enough for the addicts to
view them. When us reformed (or non-admitted) addicts get there the beautiful
pix are long gone.

I would like to see if there is objection to posting of BBQ Pictures to this
group.
