I'm intrigued by why the story would re-surface now.
Because, while Google is staged to control the world, its nerdboys
have never been able to figure out how to handle a Usenet archive.
If they would put a "This is over N years old. Are you sure you
want to reply?" screen in, most of these would go away, without
costing hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars.
Of course, without responses to 17 year-old postings, there would
hardly be any Usenet traffic at all.
I'm intrigued, but not handy enough to understand how a 17 year old post
got back into the feed as a new post. I confess that I hadn't thought
to look at the headers, and even if I had the only things that I would
recognize as amiss would be the presence of a bang!path, and of course,
What are you seeing that points to the early date? I'm using Thunderbird
as a reader. Headers as seen here below.
