It just goes to show how a lack of Trolls spells the death of a ng.
Many posters have moved to FaceBook to avoid the trolls.
I still drop in here sometimes, but everybody has disappeared trolls and
all. I don't care much for Facebook. I liked it here better, but
will go to Facebook sometime.
I liked it here, too, but...
I've thought about starting an scs group on Facebook.
It might be a good idea, but if it has a horrible editor as Soupdragon says,
I don't know. You could try it and see how it works out I suppose. I don't
have a problem with posts from trolls on SCS. I put posters whose posts I
didn't want to see on my blocked list and most times never see their posts.
Most mail/news readers block out posts you are not interested in. I've used
Outlook express and I never see most of the posts from trolls or others who
are semi-trolls :) I use Win XP for my mail and news, but for Win 7 and up
you could use another mail/news reader such as Firefox or others.
Firefox isn't an e-mail client/newsreader. Are you thinking of
Yes, Charles. My mistake.
Forte Agent has a similar appearance but isn't free any more; I think
one of the other free newsreaders isn't too different but I can't
remember which one. One thing to watch for nowadays is that a
newsreader/mailreader doesn't open attachments by default. Some of the
older ones still available might not run on Windows 7 or newer.
SeaMonkey is another newsreader associated (like Thunderbird) with
Mozilla but also seems to be a browser.
I've used Outlook express since it came out in Internet Explorer 4-6 bundled
with Win 95 up to Win XP. Vista had Windows Mail, which was not the same as
Outlook express but quite similar. I used Vista for a while, and I liked it
I mostly use Win XP on my desktop and win 7 on my laptop for newer
programs.. I've never opened attachments in OE from the time I first used
it. I've never used the address book as it caused problems for a lot of
people, more in the beginning of Outlook express. its not as convenient not
to use an address book, but it's saved me a lot of problems. Also, what I
like about OE is the mail and newsreader is all on the same page, so you can
download both at the same time. I haven't tried win 8 and don't know if I
With win 7, there is no mail reader, so sometimes use Yahoo on win 7. But I
don't like the setup of it.
I've never used Mozilla or Thunderbird. For newsreader, I've used Aioe for
many years and found it to be very good. Also a good newsreader is Eternal
September except now many Usenet groups have died out. I always thought they
were a good idea, but I guess lots of people didn't.
