May I kindly point out that usenet news reaches tens of thousands of
computers, on the vast majority of which there will be zero reader for
your group. Thus, the real equation is that you need tens of thousands of
readers to break even. Before that, you're wasting bandwidth and disk
space on tens of thousands of sites whose users aren't interested in the
group. Note that I don't care either way about your RFD. I just wanted to
set the record straight.
