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

There is a reason why binary groups expire quickly: binaries take up
a lot of server space. What you are proposing could result in AFB
expiring more quickly on lots of servers.

Binaries don't belong in non-binary groups. Period.

I'm a new poster here, but have been lurking for a few weeks and
(hopefully :-) have a good about the group and it's personalities.

Personally, I think it's a bad idea to post binaries to a non-binary
group (only a small portion of the alt hierarchy is binary). I access
Usenet from a couple of different sources, some of which tolerate
binaries and some of which don't. For example, right now I'm using a
Supernews account that specifically doesn't include any binary groups
(it's quite a bit cheaper than one that does). If this groups started
including binaries, at best I wouldn't get the images, but at worst
Supernews might start considering this a binary group and drop it from
their non-binary service. Google also doesn't archive or support
binaries, so anyone who posts from Google would be left out.

Top posting is also evil, but it's probably not a good idea to resurrect
that thread right now ;-)

So you'ld like to see the retention in this group become as
low as the binary groups?

Binaries to text groups usually get blocked by news service
providers. Your binary posts would not be seen by most
people. Repeated posting of binaries to text groups may be
considered abuse by your news service and get your account
terminated.

My news provider says, " Alt.binaries.food has 6810
articles, and 63.6 days of retention, alt.food.barbecue has
21984 articles, and 284.5 days of retention."

Maybe you should get a better news provider.

And again, "NO"

The retention time is a function of the policies of YOUR SELECTED news
provider. Attempting to solve the problem(s) that you have with your
selected provider by impacting every other reader of this newsgroup is
rather selfish, not to say impractical.

Why so? Most news providers do not go out of their way to cater to
usenet, regarding it as a sort of mysterious burden they have to
assume. If you transform a non-binary group into a binary group they
will eventually respond to the increased resources consumed and the
retention will fall in line with their treatment of other binaries
groups. For those readers whose ISP or news provider do not carry
binary groups as a matter of policy, they will eventually conclude
that afb is a binaries group and drop it. In "solving" your problem
you make it more likely that others will lose access to afb altogether
or force them to do what you should do. Get a different news
provider.

That said, you are always free to propose changes to the group's
charter and there are sanctioned means to do so

While it's obvious the current afb denizens are overwhelmingly against

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,

Despite a lot of misuse, there are rules of etiquette for
the various newsgroups. Lengthy text threads in binary
groups are taboo, but it's done anyway. Binaries in
dedicated discussion groupls (text) is worse. Abuse of
a group charter for personal benefit is not in the best
interest of all users. Therefore it should not be done.
Retention time is a problem for casual surfers. No doubt
about it.

Abusers of usenet should be aware that some of the major
newsgroup providers adhere to a stringent policy of
acceptable use. Acceptable use is monitored by dozens
of accredited administrators around the world. A rmgroup
post by any one of them can cause a newsgroup to be
blacklisted for cause. Each ISP will then treat that
blackball according to its' own whim. My primary ISP,
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.

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

Perhaps the news server one attaches to can (but doesn't necessarily)

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.
