Seeing as I maintain quite a few mailing lists for Ubuntu, I would have to 
disagree with this statement. I would say 2 in 142,000, or 1 in every 71,000 
isn't spam :p

People still use usenet? I mean of course except for that pr0n stuff.

I haven't seen this type of communication standard except in Enter The Game and 
other sub par IRC servers that aren't Freenode or OFTC. Most of the responses I 
see in the channels are fairly quick as long as someone is around to answer.
