This is a real problem for our new _wonderful_ home and one that I had
wished could partially be solved by keeping the UseNet *"Bit.Listserv.CoCo"*
NewsGroup going.

Now that our /Terrorist(s)/ has reappeared, I stopped my efforts.
One class of CoCo people that we have excluded are the ones that
occasionally checked UseNet *"Bit.Listserv.CoCo"* NewsGroup with their

No signing up for a list, just look at B.L.CoCo. This is available on
Earthlink which has a *huge* number of users and other ISP's lists. (The
number was small when I took a quick informal poll a few weeks ago.)

They left no trace of their reading and may _want it that way_.

Am I correct that it is not possible to read the current messages leaving no
indication that they have? (Ignoring those who are forwarded the messages
from another member).

Perhaps we could start one way passing of messages to UseNet
*"Bit.Listserv.CoCo"* NewsGroup and _get help_ if problems appear.

There should not be any problems, *we* are the persons that generated the
messages in the past.
