Three questions:

1) How many newsgroups are you going to spam with this
   (I've seen it in at least 3 already)?
2) How often are you going to spam the newsgroups with
   this (I've seen this a couple of times over the last
3) Why in the hell would anyone want to you some poxy
   web based forum instead of usenet?
