There is no censorship here as nobody controls this group except whoever
owns your news server. I noticed on my newserver, only the last 40-50
messages are retained before they're deleted. On your news server the
ageing process may be faster. Nobody is deleting any messages- except
YOUR news server.

Say what? This group has very little spam. Again, maybe your news server
is picking up stuff the rest of us aren't seeing, but I'd say less than
5% of the messages here are true spam. Unless you consider all the
political ranting here as spam. <G>
