maybe ms forgot about this newsgroup
robin
I hope so. Seeing new posts to this newsgroup is easy, since on screen
it lurks at the bottom of the few others I keep up with, underneath my
email folders. Without this group, I wouldn't see many of the notices
about updates to MS and and others' products that get posted here, at
least not in a timely way.

Amen.

Isn't this a private and not public newsgroup? I access it through

privatenews.microsoft.com

which requires a username and password. However, I believe we all use the
same username and password. Since it is not a public group, that more than
likely explains why we are still around.

There is not much point in the two of us trying to have any sort of conversation.

You now know who the *Go-To* person for this group is *not* all of your other
supposed contacts at MS. :|

The NG is owned, controlled by MS, it could go poof at any time.

Why MS has elected not to take the WD group _this one_ to the Web, I do
not know neither do I really care since if it did, I would not use the Web UI
since none of this would be tolerated since it is all Off-Topic !

What the **** is your problem? Do you always need to have the last word?
You are a real bozo.

Randy,
You stand convicted by your own words. Your post is pure trolling.
In spite of the fact that you do provide useful information, I have to
say: Please go away!

Private groups are going away too. As far as I can see all NNTP groups
associated with Connect are gone, even though the announcment says not until
October...

I wouldn't expect any notice--I'm not sure why we are still here, but I'm
pretty sure that it isn't the high quality of the community here that is
keeping them from pulling the plug.

The Connect newsgroups are still there, Bill. If you can't connect,
getting a 502 Auth error, reset your newsgroup password on Connect and
it will give you nntp access again within a few hours. There was some
sort of issue a week or so back.
