The name of the message thread is "Swat Cats". I don't know about you, but
if I want to discuss the kats, I'll either do it here, or if it's kinda

I don't want to link them because they suck. I have to maintain some kind of
quality control. This is some lame message base on a cable channel that
doesn't even carry the Kats. If they do, then I'll link them. Until then, I
will not link them. Live with it.

If you don't get the newsgroup, ask your internet provider. It's a legit
newsgroup, ask them to add it. This goes for anyone that doesn't get it.

"We" agreed to establish a link? I'm afraid I don't feel responsible for
someone telling them I was going to link them. Howabout if I told them you'd
give them $1000 dollars.

If I got complaints, i'd take em down. So you're saying the site already
looks bad for having perv images, so why not make it suck even more by adding
a "Swat Cats" message board? I don't like that logic.
