Okay, I was going to say this before when you titled a post "Thanks Google
Groups", but I held back. We are not Google Groups and are not affiliated
with Google in *any* way.
There is no such thing as Google Groups. This is UseNet, which had emerged
about 15 years before Google was even born. The 'contribution' of Google
Groups to us are hit-and-run posters, orphaned messages without attributions
and archiving of message, often without consent. That clarification off my
chest, I feel better now. *smile*

I don't believe that Google Groups links are ever followed or receive credit.
However, there are various high-traffic newsgroups that get mirrored onto
Web sites (with decent traffic too). That is where inbound links can be

This, for example, will appear in about 7 Web sites that mirror this
newsgroups systematically, in its entirety.
