You probably remember that the rapidly-increasing number of off-topic posts
led to a variety of attempted solutions. That culminated in the creation
of a moderated group, comp.arch.hobbyist. The moderation is done by a
'bot, with human backup, but the group traffic level is very low. I
suspect that's because the 'bot is too good, and it's actually hard to post
as a newcomer, so interest has dropped off. The last few times I tried to
post, my posts bounced, and attempts to contact the human moderators
failed. Maybe I was just unlucky. Anyway, you'll find the FAQ and charter
on Mark Sokos' website, http://home.supernet.com/~sokos/cahfaq.htm although
it's seriously out of date and a lot of the links are broken.
