Why does it matter to you whether people on Usenet care? Usenet is a good place to people who already care about the same things; they congregate in newsgroups according to what they care about. When people in a newsgroup do not care about what you care about, they are extremely unlikely to /start/ if you somehow imply that they /ought/ to. If you feel that people /should/ care about what you care about, you have only set out to become a nuisance to others in their eyes. They will want you to go away more than anything else. If even this conducive to your personal needs, you should really talk to someone who already cares about /you/. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
