Well that's unfortunate because I couldn't care less were my posts are
archived as long as they're not archived on Google. If I were inclined
to create a Usenet archive, I surely wouldn't honor XNA. If Google
stopped honoring XNA tomorrow I wouldn't be pleased about it, but I
wouldn't stop posting on Usenet either.
