    Mahatma Gandhi had a non-violent salt march to the sea, in the face of
    unjust laws for India's citizens.

    Martin Luther King boycotted the buses in Montgomery, Alabama and then
    marched on the road to Montgomery to achieve basic civil rights for blacks.

    And now we nntp citizens face a similar dilemma.

    The company that claimed to have listened to its customers for Windows 7,
    has in fact rejected them. Free speech has been removed for Windows 7 in
    favour of a control-freak web forum.

    It's time to march through the lands of nntp from group to group, sharing
    with our brothers and sisters the salt of free speech; sharing the salt of
    uncensored comments; highlighting the unjustness of a 'shift to web forum'
    law that would in future prevent it.

    Let us lay aside the bitter polemics that divide us. Let us march through
    the nntp groups; nntp brother and sister hand-in-hand with nntp brother or
    sister; united in the desire for the future of nntp newsgroups where we may
    freely express our thoughts.

    Let us march

    -'Registry cleaner' advocate hand in hand with 'do not touch the registry'
    -'XP advocate' hand-in-hand with 'W7 advocate',
    -'Vista advocate' hand-in-hand with 'Ubuntu advocate'

    united in our common human objective, that while we may strongly disagree on
    many points (in fact the majority of them), we each have the right to
    express our views without excessive censorship.

    Or we could just flood their NNTP server with "create this group"
    requests until they submit.

    Good suggestion. That's Plan B.
