There was a question about how to get the profile of a message poster. 
Say you want to know the statistical information as to the various usenet 
groups to which I have posted in the past, you can get it very easily. 
Once you are on the statistical list, then you can retrieve each message 
I have posted and read it.

The beauty of it is that you will know a lot about say John Doe your 
friend. For example you will get a list like this.	256
	alt.vegetarian	192
	alt.skydiving	143
	alt.mysticism	133
	alt.politics	102
	alt.computers	99	98	69
	alt.freemason	66
	alt.karma	54
	alt.cats	44
	alt.snakes	41
	alt.racism	33
The numbers indicate the number of messages found in usenet posted by 
John on the topic. You can see from the above, what kinds of interest the 
person has.

To get the above is very simple.
1. Go to
2. Search for John Doe
3. You will get a list of first 20 messages matching the search.
4. Move the mouse to any message and click on the Author.
5. Bingo you have the display as above.

Try the above search on your friends. Then read some of the messages. You 
may have a pleasant surprise.

Enjoy Dejanews.

    Peace to all living beings.
