Default OT, Google better pull-up! will they crash?

For about a week now, google is waaay behind on getting peoples posts
into the mix.

As it stands right now.. if you post through google, it's going to be
days before you actually see the post...

I use several other services to get a post through... I'm waiting on
google to catch up.

However! Could this be the beginning of a long slow melt-down?

I have long since predicted that Google is going to crash (at some
point)
why? because they got to big to quick...

it's like putting too much air into a balloon... success must have a
place to go...

Will they pull out of this one? To their credit, google is able to
take each post and propagate it to other usenet servers. So posts are
making it to usenet, just not their own db.

Probably the best thing that could happen to newsgroups would be for
Google to go away since 99.9% of spam originates from Google.

My advice would be to get a real newsreader and either use your ISP's
feed, or a free server like aioe.cjb.net


we should also start using alternative search engines. i've been comparing
results between google and ask. ask works just as well so far.

I always use Search.MSN as my first choice. With it's simple use of
symbols like ""+- I can zero in on what I'm looking for real quick.

Just for starters google sucks. I think we should get the hell out of
Iraq
and invade GOOGLE before it is too late. They have ALL the weapons of
mass
destruction.

lol...


haha!

Because lots of people post through or search with Google?

There are actually times when cross posting is appropriate. If you would
rather not you have the option of removing groups from send line.

Wondered what was going on with them, I am pretty disgusted with them
and am thinking of changing to a real news reader. I know this has
been addressed, but di not pay attention. Any ideas? \

Either free or pay, what ever is the best.
Thanks, Rosie

I've just noticed it in the last two days. Before that, speed of
lightning (welll, ALmost) posting.
Maybe the onslaught of spam has slowed things down?
I also notice sane posters leaving in droves and heading off to
moderated groups.
