Meanwhile, what you wanted to photograph has long since flown away, run
away, of passed on down the road. I like auto-focus, or better yet,
focus at infinity and forget it for scenery.

Have you noticed that this ng has been inundated for many hours by
a large number of duplicate messages? At first I thought my
newreader's database had become corrupted, as the messages didn't
appear in reasonable positions in the thread tree. I checked this
ng with another newsreader, pulling messages from a different news
server and the problem existed there too. The bogus messages were
not exact duplicates, as some changes were visible in the headers:

I'm surprised it hasn't generated a thread or two, but at least it
seems to finally have been fixed.
