Or answered one!
Test posts are one of my pet peeves. I've been reading and posting news
since the mid 1980s. It seems as if every newbie feels the need to post
a test message. 99.9999% have nothing to say but nevertheless feel
obligated to say something.
If you subscribe to a busy newsgroup you might have to wait a whole five
or ten minutes before receiving your first message.
