The purpose of the newsgroup is explained both in the
news.announce.newusers postings, and in the 'newsgroups' file
distributed with B news.  Nobody reads EVERY scrap of documentation, but
news.announce.newusers is the FIRST thing everyone ought to read before
posting.  Even then, nobody can memorize every newsgroup, but when the
question of a SPECIFIC group's purpose comes up, the reference document
is the FIRST thing people should check.  There is no excuse.

If "a number of people" (I'm thinking of a certain VERY SMALL number
here ;-) ) got the message the last few weeks, that's good news.
