Mr Asch (and/or others) a benign question

Mr. Asch, (and/or others)
Is there a better group system that you use instead of rec.crafts.metalworking? I remember it as a great Usenet choice, but times have changed.
Google are now making me sign in just to read any postings and that sucks when I just wan to do a quick search.
You seem to be a sane and logical fellow so I figure if you are using a better group without google demands and all the Political clap-trap here, then that's what I need to use too.
Thanks
Walt

R.C.M is a usenet group - it doesn't "belong" to google; google is just one of many usenet providers. Google users get a free, no configuration required, web based interface to usenet.
An alternative to google would be to obtain usenet service from a different usenet provider - but this requires more effort on your part.
Some providers charge a fee for their service. I'm paying giganews, my usenet provider a small monthly fee. There are also free usenet providers (eternal september for example); the quality/reliability from the free providers can vary quite a bit; but eternal september seems ok.
In addition to having a usenet provider, you would need to choose, install, and configure a usenet client (also called a news reader) on your PC/phone... whatever you use. Examples: Forte Agent, Thunderbird, others.... I'm using a old, no longer supported client called 40tude Dialog. I like it because it has excellent filtering - but getting it to run in Windows takes some extra care.
Once you had everything set up, according to your usenet provider's instructions, you use your news reader to connect to their own servers where you can download messages to read, and upload your replies. If you did post, your message goes to your provider's server first, then your message is propagated to the rest of us around the world.
The details related to getting things set up will depend on which provider, and which news reader, are chosen.

Some of the forums are ok, but some are a little tyrannical too. Youse pays yer nickle and youse takes yer chances.
I use Thunderbird and AIEO to read this group, and the K key is my close personal friend.

Hahahaha!
Ok, thanks for that comment. I was going to write a reply to your well thread but now I won't bother.
If your comment was serious then you might want to take a look at this. https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.crafts.metalworking/EGjlW2l80nQ/fR4B_hJ2lX0J Many entertaining "mr asche" quotes, no metalworking.

Hey Wieber, if I were in a mental hospital, at least I'd be sleeping in the same bed every night. As opposed to being a deadbeat who hilariously claims to make $75 an hour, yet sleeps in his truck half the time.
BTW, the bed in my new house is the nicest I've ever had. King size, custom base, foam mattress with memory foam topper. Super comfortable, looks nice, and no matter how much movement on one side, none on the other. And no squeaks. A substantial piece of cabinetry that took me about three days to build. You get to do without because like so many things I spent my time on, you preferred to be on Usenet telling lies instead.

Copy and paste the list you ridiculous liar. You can't, because as everyone knows you pull these numbers and stories out of your ass. Same as the 265mph motorcycle story, the 2/5/8 years deputy story, the 1/4/8 years democrat story, etc.

I've used jaques and gardner. That's all your friends and family? <chuckle> It's a different mocker who uses your facebook names to good effect. And it's typical Wieber incompetence that you can't tell the difference between the names of your friends, and song-title nyms.
I take it that you didn't like me posting the Wieber Cliff notes. Boo hoo. Some good advice: when you're caught lying, stop telling lies. Of course, my preference is that you continue to ignore ALL good advice. It's more entertaining that way. In fact, we're due some new stories about dumpster diving and rent arrears etc. Sure, your pity parties don't work like they used to, but if at first you don't succeed...

LOL I take it Jeffrey is one of Gardner's friends. Watch out! He might post your headers, the Usenet equivalent of lightly slapping a glove in your direction. Damn, I remember when he was supposedly one of Wieber's hit squad. How the "mighty" have fallen.

Nope, only used the ones I said. I told you I use song names almost entirely. That's the truth and you're a goddamned stupid liar for saying otherwise. And why should anyone be surprised that you're a goddamned stupid liar, or that you beg to be called out, considering that you're friends with Wieber, the most obvious and ridiculous goddamned stupid liar I've ever heard of.

Millions of us miss the sh*t out of the DejaVu search site that google ruined. What they did was nigh onta criminal.

Yeah, duckduckgo is as much like Deja News as popsicles. Larry can't remember the name of the service and you don't know what he's talking about anyway. LOL
