I would like to think so but then
the trend seems to be against it. I did
have a friend(another old Amigan) at the
LUG meeting on Sunday ask how to set it up
on Thunderbird.

A few minutes later and I was thinking
we need popular sites to promote Usenet as for
Freedom of Speech.
Facebook as a bad example shut down the
site of a black American woman murdered by police
as her 5 year old watched. She was taking a video
at the time. Fb shut down her site at police
request.
So we might need a new sort of Usenet
as well with pictures as well as data and text.
I am so irritated by this I will post the link
to the petition here.

==================================
Subject: Facebook deactivated her profile on police request. Then police
killed her.

Hey,

I just signed this ColorOfChange petition and I think you should to.

Facebook, at the request of police, deactivated the social media
accounts of Korryn Gaines, a 23-year-old Black woman shot to death by
Baltimore police last Monday. She was broadcasting the standoff on
Facebook that led to police shooting her 5 year-old son and killing her.

This a dangerous precedent. To keep our message from getting out, police
are going to keep taking our social media out.

Join me and demand Facebook stop censoring users at the request of the
police.
