Well done, Helen. Amazing how you were completely on top of Bret's
posting world so you could reply off his original and spam it back into
three groups.

I don't understand what the big deal is about crossposting. As Bret
pointed out, it makes it a lot easier to see replies instead of
wasting time checking out replies on each individual group. The topic
is photography, and that is very appropriate.


It's inappropriate to cross post, period. That is, the manner in which
your alter ego does, as does "Rita", simply in order to get more
attention. Yes, sometimes it's fine, but judgement and restraint is
required, something in short supply among a very few regulars.

It is quite clear from some replies that cross-posting to some newsgroups
is seen as an unwelcome intrusion there, and yet people persist in doing
so. Rude? It serves no purpose whatsoever.

Well, it serves one purpose in one particular case. Filtering out
anything here crossposted to aus.photo improves the SNR no end.

F'rinstance I had no idea of this thread's existence until you dropped
aus.photo. Have I missed anything worthwhile? I think not.
