If you want to reply, you have to join. At the bottom of every page it also
says copyright Google 2002 ... making a mess of who legally owns the
copyright. Since the same posts are in ROOTSWEB, both cannot hold copyright.
Big drawbacks to GOOGLE are no spell checks, no easy saves of materials for
your own records, difficulty in quoting from or replying to other posts, as
you reply to the entire post and the text is repeated over and over and over
again in entirety. Frankly, the entire system sucks.

On the good side, all the flames and useless arguments have moved over there
so they can have a world audience for their brilliant putdowns and illogical
