    I wonder if you would consider only posting the statistics only for
    the group the statistics are collected for and quit the cross posting.

    Yes, I understand the original reason, but I believe it no longer applies.

    Well I've been considering dropping the a.o.l.mandrake summary posts
    at which point it would also be sensible to stop the cross posting.

    Do you have a particular reason for not wanting the cross-posting?

    Does anyone disagree with this?

    I'd stop crossposting the mandrake summary, as there is really nothing
    useful there. I'd continue crossposting the mandriva summary, so
    new users, who have installed an old mandrake version, have a better
    chance of finding the new newsgroup.

    I would assume any mandrake user would have seen the mandriva stats cross
    posts by now. Anyone posting to mandrake can be told about mandriva
    news group. The one or two mandrake users I have seen were over in
    linux.misc or .setup.

    Though I know of one long term Linux/FSF user who was unaware of the
    re-branding so if he did start thinking about mandriva an on-going
    pointer would seem to be sensible.

    I've still not seen a reason from you as to why you dislike the
    (suggested or indeed the existing) cross post
