aus.invest is dead, long live aus_invest

Filed under: General — arandomperson @ 1:17 am

Well the Usenet group aus.invest is completely dead, downed in a wave of spam and crossposted garbage.
But a new google group has been created at http://groups.google.com/group/aus_invest that needs a google account to post to, hopefully the good content from the old aus.invest will appear there without the crap. Looks like spam and crossposting has finally killed NNTP?

google Australia lacking intestinal fortitude, censors Jenman link about Castran Gilbert

Filed under: real-estate — arandomperson @ 12:50 pm

This google Australia link has excised results, but does have a link to chillingeffects.org so what was censored can be viewed: http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q=Castran+Gilbert

The same search from the main(?)/USA Google has the original results, linking to the Jenman article that expounds on Castran Gilberts practices.

Jenman has invited Castran Gilbert to sue him directly. So far they have not. This speaks volumes for the validity of their claims.

‘So sue me’ taunt to agents over ‘defamatory’ web articles – The Age article on the matter.

Article in the Australian Real Estate Blog

And on BoingBoing

update: reading further, Mark Forytarz, one of the principle characters in this sorry story has some kind of involvement with the Liberal party.

Interestingly a google search on Mark Forytarz on the international google shows up the full story, while a search on the local google shows the censored version of the results.
