The end of the endless September.
"America Online on Tuesday confirmed that it will stop supporting access to newsgroups." Thus ends what many labeled the greatest plague upon the Internet, the (triple posting) barbarian horde

Censorship on a public Blog?
- When someone posts a link to content that others find shocking to a public blog (in this case Flazoom.com) how should the blog-master handle it.
