Google Censor Comp.Emacs Newsgroup. Erasing 30 Years of History

By Xah Lee. Date: .

Now it's impossible to access comp.emacs newsgroup.

google comp.emacs newsgroup censor 2019-10-10 jv7xh
google comp.emacs newsgroup censor 2019-10-10 jv7xh

when you click “continue”, same screen.

I have tens of articles linking back to comp.emacs newsgroup and others such as comp.lang.lisp, comp.lang.python. Now, they became without source.

This is very bad, because the link does not contain info about date and subject and newsgroup name, and many my article does not have those info on the source, thinking that Google newsgroup is not going to go away. (Google was considered never do evil in the 2000s)

here's one of my article where myrkraverk told me about the dead link:
