    Newsgroup posts in forums, good idea or not?

    I've added a script that puts newsgroup posts from related servers into my forums... I did this as the forums were only getting about 10 posts a day. Is this a good idea?

    If you are intersted in checking it out, the link is in my sig (just click on the forums, then pick Hardware > General to see what I mean)

    Thanks, Ian

    I think its a great idea. Make sure that you are able to moderate posts if they are going back to usenet as well as on your forum. Its really easy for some spammer to abuse your community. (BTW, how are you doing this?).

    It was a vBulletin "hack" available - I installed it but it was full of too much spam

    Hi,
    That's a really cool idea! So, are the posters able to post to the newsgroups via your forums or does it just start new threads on top of them?

    Cool concept! I'll have to try that you.

    Thanks,

    John
