    Don't use Windows 7?
    The Subject line clearly indicates it was a Windows 7 question so why
    did you reply?

    Anyway, I didn't think this newsgroup was moderated, do you claim to be
    a moderator?

    Going from your headers: Time Zone of "Tue, 15 Jun 2010 02:19:00 -0500"
    and sticking your nose in seems to indicate you might just be another
    "Dick Head" from that part of the World.

    Why would you ask a Windows 7 question in a Windows XP newsgroup?

    Sorry, I am using the news server: msnews.microsoft.com
    I cannot find any newsgroups for Windows 7.

    excellent.

    So do you have any questions about the public transport schedule you
    need answered?

    Ah no, the usenet group is free, it's that particular news server that
    costs. Just access the newsgroup from one of the "free servers".

    For the purpose of accessing "alt.windows7.general"? I wouldn't bother,
    99% of the postings are flames and user bashing. You'd spend more time
    maintaining filters than reading posts.
