There is *absolutely nothing* we can do about that. Google doesn't listen 
to us, and the suggestion that we can influence them because Guido van 
Rossum used to work for them many years ago is naive.

We cannot influence Google's decision about the newsgroup; we cannot 
convince your boss to allow access to the newsgroup at work; and 
apparently we can't convince you that just because you will no longer be 
able to access it from work, doesn't mean you have to stop accessing it 
from home. Oh well, such is life.

(Ironically, the vast bulk of spam on the newsgroup comes from Google 
Groups itself, so if this does happen, it will probably be a nett win for 
the community, even if it does negatively impact some individuals.)

There's nothing we can do about it, so there is no point wasting time
