First they kill the speed of the web, flood USENET with spam, invent the
dreaded "Me Too!" threads from hell, etc.. Now they're going to kill the
video conferencing part of it as well.. <Sigh> Wonder how hard it'll be
to get on refs once AOL users can use them.. And then Compuserve users..
Then GNN users..

Enjoy em' while you can..
