Particularly Google+ Communities. Recently info on modifying an Acer Chromebook to run full Ubuntu was moved to such a community. I can't be the only one that finds the layout to be an utter abortion, can I? I'm curious if there is any effort underway to bring back Usenet. One of the big downfalls of Usenet mentioned is spam, but certainly there are ways to deal with that now. If such a movement to bring back Usenet doesn't exist, I'd like to get the discussion started here." top
For a while now I've had a few friends, only a few, tell me repeatedly how awesome Twitter is. And tell me again. And still again. I've tried Twitter and quite frankly didn't find it very useful for anything. I was content to ignore Twitter and chalk up the fact that I didn't get it to simply not being hip, cool, and/or, with it. However, now that the Twitter trend has intruded upon my feed reading and inconvenienced me, I'm wondering whether I'm alone or are others suffering from Twitter fatigue?"
