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.

No sir. There are many reasons why people use XNA, I gave one of mine in
