This is about as off-topic as it gets, but I hope that my occasional
contributions are sufficient that I am allowed a bit of slack... :)
I recently took over as the moderator of the misc.business.product-dev
(product development) newsgroup. It is my intention to make it into a
good resource for all aspects of product development. (I really can't
think of any way that this relates to SEO, other than some of us having
multiple areas of interest.)
I have set up moderation software and have tested it with a few
low-volume threads, and I am now ready to invite more users.
Here is how the moderation works:
Crossposts to one other non-moderated newsgroup are allowed and welcome.
I add new posters who have a history of being non-kooks (expect a delay
until the next time I log in as moderator - I do this several times per
day) to the whitelist so that all future posts by them are autoapproved
All posts will be approved unless they are obvious spam or off-topic
trolling. This, by the way, gives you a chance to have a conversation
about product development in a newsgroup that is full of trolls and
flamers; simply crosspost to misc.business.product-dev. read the thread
in misc.business.product-dev, and I will reject any trolling, flaming,
political/religious posts, etc. I will *not* censor posts for content
as long as they have at least a marginal connection with product
I have the ability to give others the power to moderate, and the
software to do so is web-based and easy to use. Right now the volume
is pretty low, but I may be looking for moderators later.
