As Reinhard already said: "Discussion period is closed"
Anything that was not considered important enough to be said during
the discussion period, should not be said anymore.
That being said, I would like to point out that(IMHO):
1) ALL newsgroups are elitist in nature.
2) The more elitist a newsgroup is, the less bandwidth waste will be.
