I know what you mean... I'm still waiting for that puff. PageRank updates
have not reached me although Google has been eating my site quite violently.
About 200 MB of pages were devoured in the last few days of October, so I'm
looking forward to the better.

Well, it's just been very odd. A few of the posts make you raise a brow if
not remain gape-mouthed. It reminds me of the very eccentric alt.2600. If
you were ever subscribed to it, you would know what I mean. At some stage
they started crossposting to alt.html and drove many regulars away.

It is still favourite group to be in and the discussion used to be very
stimulating. Then came a wave of quirks and I thought to myself "is it only
me?...". Finally I decided to ask and see if others sensed the same thing.
The quality can degrade if occupancy in the group changes.
