That's the whole point of the newsgroups line, Potter. Those who read alt.comp.freeware are interested in freeware, not physics. Those few who are interested in both physics and freeware will follow both groups. The whole idea is for you to post your physics ideas (regardless of their worthlessness) to sci.physics, and freeware to alt.comp.freeware. Even you should be able to understand that.
