Actually, your posts were very helpful and the reason I've kept coming
back. Thank you for explaining things. I've been out of coin collecting
for over a decade, so there are a lot of things I don't know (not that I
was an expert to begin with).
Usenet was a completely different place a decade ago, and I guess
somehow I was hoping this newsgroup was an exception. But it's declined
as much as the rest of them (those that are even left), and I guess I
was disappointed. But I was mostly agreeing with the OP that this is not
a place I'd want to introduce my kids to, due to the garbage that
unfortunately overshadows the useful information.
