 comp.lang.pop is not for pop3/email/modem topics

[To reply replace "Aaron.Sloman.XX" with "A.Sloman"]

Various people have recently been posting to comp.lang.pop about
issues concerned with email,TCP-IP, modems, etc.



Please note: the comp.lang.pop news group has nothing to do with
pop3, modems or mail.

It was set up for discussion of the programming language Pop-11 and
other languages in the Pop family (Pop2, Pop10, Wpop, Alphapop) and the
other languages in the Poplog system, namely Prolog, Common Lisp and ML.
These are programming languages (hence the use of "comp.lang" in the
news group name), and have nothing to do with pop3.

The FAQ for the news group is at

    http://www.*-*-*.com/

It includes this:

   From time to time people post queries to this news group concerning
   email (POP3 protocols) because they misinterpret the name of the
   group. comp.lang.pop has nothing to do with email software, or the
   Post office protocol.

   People wishing to discuss that sort of thing should post to a news
   group that is more directly relevant, e.g.

   comp.mail.misc

   or one of the other comp.mail groups. Their questions and answers
   are then more likely to be read by people with relevant knowledge
   and interests.

Unfortunately, postings that are off topic also get relayed to
people on an associated email list which can be annoying for them.

Thank you

Aaron
