I know the title will be very confusing to many but for those who have been around since the days before dial-up modems this has some interesting touch points with running a forum.
comp.lang.c is on UseNet and was one of the most popular for programmers as it was about the C programming language which was big at that time, C still is very popular but I don’t know how popular comp.lang.c has been of late.
But if you have visited some of the UseNet groups in the last few years some of them have become the places where others banned from other forums seem to go because of lack of adequate moderation.
So why the mention here? If comp.lang.c is getting banned then this might become a domino effect and the start of the end of UseNet.
