I used to be in that newsgroup a year ago along with lots of other Amiga newsgroups. It was very interesting sometimes I must say.
I also remember that idiot "SD" that posted lots of bullshit in comp.sys.amiga.advocacy. He thought Hyperion renamed some file in OS 4 to SD just because of him.. what a sad idiot. Thanks to him I dont look in Amiga news anymore.
(I think I wrote a public message to him that I would punch him in his face if he ever showed up where I lived).
