I understand you, thinking almost the same, but besides copyright, there is also
ethics, and I prefer before taking something to ask first ;). But nowadays,
ethics may be outdated too. Am not sure...

As to BE reply, he wants to attract a community to this newsgroup and to POV in
general, and I suppose it's possible to, choosing some modern methods and
platforms: youtube, discord (btw, very popular now). I suppose, opening a
discord channel will bring more visitors, than struggling with Google :).

This newsgroup contains a lot of valuable and unique information, but interface
is outdated (I like it, as I am old-school man), but people wants something more
attractive, with embedded images and video, say, like:
https://www.zbrushcentral.com/c/zbrush-help/6

Let's take into account that POV-Ray is producing images, and this is the first,
what user expects to see, when clicking the link.
