Icarus has some decent ideas, but there is a much better way.
When you have taken care of basics like using a real newsreader,
get back to me.
Google is for reading the Archives.
And for incompetent windoze weenies to post from.
Google does not format replies correctly and it is pain
in the ass to use and to read.
There are FREE Usnet newsservers out there.
Here's one that was posted on alt.free.newsservers a while
back, and I'd use it if Earthlink didn't have one:
No registration. No authentication. No fees.
Newsreaders for linux/unix are free too.
If you are posting through google for any purpose
other than learning to use a real newsreader,
many of us will not answer your questions.
