I'm afraid you are fairly wrong there. 90% if the differences are in the
alt.* hierarchy which is explicity and area set aside for groups to be
created at random by anyone. Even in that area sites will have most of the
Most other hierarchies are either local or fairly well controlled (rec,
nz, uk) and groups are added and removed by pgp signed crontrol messages.
