    As an aside to the SED regulars, it would probably be a good idea for us
    to confine our responses to SED rather than accepting the default
    cross-posting to the other NGs--alt.home.repair and uk.d-i-y at the moment.

    Stuff is quite unlikely to be on-topic in all of them, and the amount of
    cruft and bird droppings we've been flushing out is way out of
    proportion to any benefit. In short (and I include myself in this)

    Oh, I do not mind seeing other groups are still alive
    and exchanging ideas.
    What I do mind is idiotic subject headers, like the one
    you recently participated in
    I just skip those by default, like
    'troll feeding senile ... '

    Maybe I should activate my filter again.

    How about adding a reverse filter? Only show post by you and J Larking and
    a few selected other ones?
    No, not a good idea,
    Keep the cross postings!
    No police needed here, this is Usenet!!!!!

    As to looking at things from 'different angles', read this:

    I just cannot believe Tesla is so stupid as to use only one camera for autonomous driving...
    ????
    Well Musk playing with twitter backfired too :-)
    I was hoping they would stop censoring, but it will likely get worse
    Now they censor Musk.

    Sign of times... Like when the Roman empire fell and religion overtook any science and common sense.
    US turning black and IQ dropping below 100
    Is all over now, (checks radiation meter) well almost anyways, just wait,,,

    popeye jamming

    the problem is the Google groups portal UI
    that I (and perhaps many) use. It simply
    does not show the headers. I dont know if the
    post is crossposted :-(
    I have to switch to Seamonkey as others have
    suggested.

    What are you running, MS windows? Does free agent still exist?
    If Linux there are several newsreadwrs, I wrote my own around 1999 or there about, still using it:

    Hi Jan, Yes, 99% of the time, I use windoze. On occasion MacOS, & Raspian.
    I guess Free Agent and others are available and could be OK.
    I mention Seamonkey only because its free, and available as a portable app.
    I usually go there first when the a need arises for a new app. https://portableapps.com/apps
    I like the "clean" install & de-install of portable apps :-)

    Re Trolls & topicality, its a kind of unrestrained human behavior
    with no consequences. A challenge, like how free should free speech be,
    that we will likely never all 100% agree.
    = RS
