alt.machines.cnc--Have you been? You MUST!


Put on your sloggin' boots and take a trip over to alt.machines.cnc.
You think we have a problem here? Ain't nothin' compared to the party
they're havin'. Signal-to-noise ratio too close to zero to measure.
Also worthy to note that those who are the most trouble here are heavy
contributors of "cess" in the alt.machines.cnc pool.

Are you really this dumb, the signal to noise ratio here has gone down, so why are you trying to drag people back in? Leave it alone.
FYI, there is only "one" person contributing to the "CESS" there and here if you check the statistics for the group lately.

Certainly not advising anyone to get involved, just to observe.
I posted because I found it enlightening to see what was going on over there. I think it is good for those who subscribe here and not there to see what is going on there. It shows much about the mentality of certain individuals, and the group's culture as a whole. I also have a new appreciation for the level of civility here, dismal but not abysmal.
That much crap is not generated by any single person. Plenty of folks willing to wrassle the pigs. All are culpable.

Bait

It really wasn't intended to be bait. I can see now how one would think so.

That's what proper news servers, news readers, and kill files are for. Once the wheat is separated from the chaff in amc, the machining content, what little of it there is these days compared to what it was a decade ago before Cliff showed up mind you, IS readily available.

It really does magnify the merits of a bona fide news reader. I've managed OK on c.c.sw so far as a Google grouper. Wouldn't bother @ a.m.cnc.
I've been out of machining for 14 years now. Mostly custom manual stuff. It was fun, but I doubt I'd ever go back.
