It's my understanding that Earthlink now shunts our accounts to their
functioning successor service. At the end of the month I sometimes get a
notice that I am about to exceed my limit of accessed messages, and I am
offered a subscription purchase at an unattractive price. Since I only
use my Earthlink news link for binary groups, I use text-only no-charge
services (like news.gmane.org for this group) for my daily news fix.
They keep me going all month long.
What is this stuff about stealing? Of course I confine my high-minded
binary interests to opera music files, language-learning sound files,
and great works of world literature. Just like you. It is so nice to
make the acquaintance of another gentleman of the Old School.
