Google Groups 2

Early Adopter points out that Google is beta testing some nice enhancements to the newsgroups portion of the site. The most interesting one is the ability to turn a newsgroup into a mailing list.

This got me thinking, as a lot of things do. I get a lot of spam. I frequently see spam advertisements for free erotica pictures in your inbox every morning. If you subscribe to alt.binaries.erotica.*, you could have all the free erotica I want.

Then I took a closer look at the Google Groups. Google doesn’t archive the binaries newsgroups. I guess we’ll have to continue to read these groups the old-fashioned way.
