Why are you all banned on google groups? I'm sending this in gnus and
don't know what I'm doing.
And why comp.lang.lisp ?

That is a good question. I think I know the answer.

What we have heard from Hugh Aguilar and Peter x is by far not serious enough
to warrant this measure. And they don't cross post to comp.lang.lisp.

It is almost certainly the Italian posts in all capitals that we don't
understand but they are accusing some one to be a child molester.
There is a name there too.
Those same posts are present on comp.lang.lisp, that was a hint.
If that some one complained, whether or not he is an actual molester that
would be reason to ban the posts. Because there is nobody there at Google
just bots and lawyers, this has happened the way it did.
A sensible person would just have banned posts all capitals , or
Italian posts on an English newsgroup.

There may be a solution. If some one with the status of professor (hint hint)
hopefully several, complains with google and explains that this group has
actual important content the situation may be reversed, if it is ....
accompagnied with a promise that we will police the google group ourselves.
That means that everybody looks at the google group from time to time and
immediately signals the offending posts to google so that they can remove them.

So Forth professors, Lisp professors unite!

Those posts (accusing this lawyer or that lawyer of being an assasin or
pedophile or other things) also appear in many other newsgroups:
comp.sys.sun.hardware, sci.crypt, comp.unix.solaris, comp.softare-eng,
comp.lang.oberon, comp.lang.haskell, and a slew of others.

"Our own users have been recently spewing harmful garbage into Usenet,
which is why we can no longer allow you to access an old comp.lang.lisp
posting from 1999, even if you have the exact URL bookmarked.
Have a nice day!"

That really computes!

People complain about MSM and fake news in politics but the users who
have agreed to the terms and conditions and privacy policies seem to be
utterly blind to when they encounter it daily in the google's endtimes
kingdom of the antichrist.

Here is some beloved son of the father of lies writing about how your
website connections have improved.

"We have disabled TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 to improve your website
connections. Sites that don't support TLS version 1.2 will now show an
error page."
