  • There is a glitch happening somewhere. I see posts today but only a couple. Looks like it "died" after 9/11.

    • Verizon recently announced impending usenet feed stop, idk the effective date. That may be unrelated.

      Where are you getting feed and what robust spam filter are you using? I have mostly ignored Usenet although i have kedt my original ISP world!wdr account active.

  • That is probably a temporary issue. That newsgroup has been mildly active, even without my FAQ post every six hours.

    comp.lang.perl.misc died years ago, though.

  • After a very slow start of the week in comp.lang.perl.misc, I just retrieved 34 unread headers (apart from those that I ignore), all from the last 12 hours. Which is still nowhere near the old number, it used to get 300 messages a day, but it's still a respectable number.
