Big Bertha Thing publication

Cosmic Ray Series
Possible Real World System Constructs

The statistics for Big Bertha Thing postings published on sci.astro are as follows:-

20 No. 50K primary postings   (out of 26)
 2 No. 600K    ditto          (out of 4)
12 No. off-topic postings     (out of 200)
 4 No. 50K secondary postings (out of 26)
20 No. 4K      ditto          (out of 26)
20 No. 2K      ditto          (out of 26)
24 No. astronomical postings  (out of 2000)

There was almost zero response to the above, which were spread over 28 days, at the rate of two days per week.

Book-burners deleted the archive of Net Access Policy postings prior to 2nd November 1998. Bertha saved those, with the exception of replies and published 12.

The above were also posted to the Onenet conference Astronomy & Space. Here days 18, 19, 20, were minimal keep-off-the-grass days and on days 27 and 28 they broke ranks. The on-topic filibuster of sound-bite journalism ended, at 42 days old. (The beginning of the end of spam.)
