2.1 What is it? (alt.quotations newsgroup)


News is what a chap who doesn't care much about
anything wants to read. And it's only news until he's read
it. After that it's dead.
Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966)
"Scoop" (1938) bk. 1, ch. 5

alt.quotations is a newsgroup for everything related to quotations;
it is read, and contributed to by people from all over the world. If
you have questions regarding the author of a quotation, or want to
share your favorites, have a question about the meaning or background
of a quotation, or simply want to read some quotations posted by
various contributors, this is the place to be. You can also discuss
software and books on quotations here, or anything else, as long as it
somehow has to do with quotations.
