Here's a thought. Enough aspartame to equal the sweetness of a cup of sugar, two cups of
water, one cup of peeled and coined ginger root. Boil for a while until
the liquid is reduced by half. Add carbonated water for some form of ginger ale.
That could work with only a few ingredients. It works well with sugar.

Careful to remember though, that people who are annoyed by Usenet would be equally annoyed by whatever else was there, if it weren't. You can't please all of the people all ...

The truth is that Usenet is inhabited by people posting through their own private accounts, and not using the email addresses with their company or institutions' domain i.e., there's no incentive to maintain any sort of standards or be held accountable for the words they're putting out. All that stuff about student accounts being responsible for the Eternal September Effect is a whitewash. Back in the early 90's, the posts were mostly from the domains edu, gov, and mil. These days, most people post from the .com top-level domain.
