does anybody use this group these days ?
With the advent of blogging and rss feeds, people are getting this type of
content elsewhere. Newsgroups days are indeed numbered.
I have not seen much change in this group.
There's been a huge change in activity here compared to
five or so years ago.
The change seems even bigger compared to ten years ago, when two
of Usenet's most asshole-ish trolls were infesting this group.

moderation can at times be desirable, I've seen moderation
in some web forums become harse, arbitrary, petty, and
Moderation works at a cost. Better yet for asshole trolls to
expose themselves and slink off in shame.
ObBeer: Finale weekend, San Francisco Beer Week. Five different
hefeweizens at Gordon Biersch, a nice session at Monk's Kettle,
and a killer beer & chocolate dinner at the Cathedral Hill Hotel.
Judged barleywine for the Toronado, went to the Celebrator's Best
of the West party, and somehow found time to hit Magnolia, Alembic,
La Trappe, 21st Amendment, and Suppenküche. Boo-yah!
