Cross posting and amalgamation of groups.

    The concept that a newsgroup is based on a particular subject is rapidly
    being eroded by cross posting without using a "follow up to" marker for
    further discussion in the appropriate group.

    This is amalgamation by proxy and in all likelihood, will destroy the need
    for separate newsgroups (at least in the photographic arena). The last
    legitimate post I recall being made to aus.photo was over a week ago
    although a dozen or so cross postings were made to that group and as many as
    six others.

    Cross posting is OK if you want to save some keyboard effort and reach a
    large audience but it should also contain a "followup to" the group most
    appropriate for further discussions.

    Those who prefer to ignore this netiquette and waddle on through life with a
    FTW attitude will eventually destroy what they came to enjoy.

    The lab rats have been shocked and starved and are now biting each other in
    the ass.

    The death of civility is upon us.
