Gets even worth, they changed subject + text of our stats, so you
read "*Stats* *alt.os.windows* (last 7 days)" as subject + in the
message. See -> http://www.linuxaa.com/forum1.html
Man that sucks, seems in addition our newreader FAQ has been
removed completely, so people don't get aware at all they are
using usenet and *NOT* some www forum.
So in different to all those forums we had already, this is a new
dimension needing a little criminal energy.
What can we do? This is far from fair usage in my eyes...
