Words: Bridget Spitznagel
Music: Castle On A Cloud, Le Miz
There's a news server on a cloud. I like to read there in my sleep. Aren't any killfiles I must keep, In my news server on a cloud. All articles appear on time; People who mail me pay a dime. No groups are censored, all allowed, In my news server on a cloud There is an agent all in bytes, Filters for things that I might like It's very smart and it does catch-ups It says "I think you'll like this very much" I know a place no news gets lost, I know a place where no one spams Spamming at all is not allowed In my news server on a cloud
Background: The news servers here had been a tad flakey (for several months, because the upgrade that would fix things had its own problems.) In addition, a number of people who regularly posted to usenet had been spammed, which prompted discussion of appropriate ways to deal with unsolicited email.
