alt.backrubs newsgroup.  
        Although the archive is chock full of interesting and informative
postings I can't guarantee that anyone will find what they want there.  I
saved these posts because I was interested in them.  I haven't even saved
all the postings about topics I'm interested in (although I collected
everything informative between about November 1991 and November 1996).  I
haven't saved anything about the old backrubs exchange programme and little
from the seemingly endless arguments about sex and massage.  There are
entries about the new backrubs exchange programme in the frequently asked
questions list (with answers) which is posted to alt.backrubs every two
weeks.

        The archive is not complete because there have been times when I
could not read the group.  My site didn't receive alt.backrubs for the
first few months of 1991, and other connections weren't terribly reliable.
There is a record of a newsgroup creation message for alt.backrubs from
February 1991.  As well, two posters recall the group existing before 1991.
        The archive was opened to the public in December 1992.  I was
trying collect all the informative articles since about November 1991.  In
November 1995, the size of the task and of other commitments forced me to
stop actively archiving posts.  Until early November 1996 I was collecting
everything posted to the group but major archive updates were sporadic.  As
of early November 1996 I have ceased because my main alt.backrubs newsfeed
was cut off for reasons beyond my control.  If you see something in
alt.backrubs that you think should be in the archive then send it to me by
e-mail.
