At one time I was going to ask whether "VMS" meant something in Italy or
Italian since the idiot has been posting that crap here (and nowhere else I
knew of) for quite some time. But until now, it was only once in a while so I
always let sleeping dogs lie.

I once had some spam from Google Groups to a moderated group which I
co-moderate. I never could find anyone to talk to. Very badly run, and
tries to intentionally create the impression that "Google Groups" is
something invented by Google, when it is just a (poor) interface to
I have posted this before many times, but I will do so again.
Sometimes, like any large company, Google hires the wrong or incompetent
people. I have a theory that, rather than fire them, Google reassigns them to a
dungeon deep below their headquarters and assigns them a new task, which is to
make Google Groups worse and worse, just to get rid of them.

Google Groups is run by idiots. The only good thing about them was their
archive, but now they have broken that and the searches no longer work,
so there is really no reason for it to even exist any longer. Their attempt
to make Usenet look like it's their own proprietary thing is patently
offensive and it should be shut down.
Indeed. Whatever happened to their old motto?
When I originally came up with my "theory" they still seemed to believe in "Do
no evil" as perhaps my wording may indicate. I even had a job interview with
them after I got laid off from the VMS group, and I was half tempted to take me
to the Google Groups people were so I could yell at them. :-)
Very interesting interview.
