I would first try search under shaman. This will show a list of postings. 
Then at the bottom there is a choice I belive it is user profile or 
something like it. When you click or hit on it you will get a statistical 
two column display - first column will be the usnet group and the second 
the number of messages posted. When you move to the usenet group and 
click or hit on it, you will get a listing of all the postings in that 

Recently I read about how revealing the messages about the poster. We 
tend to make comments revealing information about ourself. In one case, 
some one took the time to pick up all the comments and put them together 
it revealed a lot of information about the person - his age, sex, where 
he lives, education, personal interests etc etc.

So cyberspace, if you are active poster, then many will know about you.

    Peace to all living beings.
