Is there a way to read this second cite? Or is it some sort of locked thing? I wanted to elaborate on the term, The Magic Circle. --Mrs. Potato Head 12:48, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

It loaded for me, but redirected to a slightly different URL, I think based on my Google logged in preferences. This truncated URL should also load the page, let me know if it works for you, and I'll fix the cite: http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.x-files/browse_thread/thread/289dd4ae44d39691/58a492e8b0543e0b --facetofcathy 14:36, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Both the old link and yours takes me to a page where have to log in with a password. --Mrs. Potato Head 16:31, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
This link can't be accessed without a Google account. --Doro 16:35, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Figures. This is the total text about Magic Circle: "The Magic Circle--describes Mulder's and Scully's increasing inability to Trust those around them, forcing them to rely exclusively on each other for Trust and friendship. Originated by Pat Nussman. "--facetofcathy 16:49, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Being a site that one has to have an account to read, is the cite/ref on the The Magic Circle and this page okay to leave as it is? I kinda don't know what to do with it. --Mrs. Potato Head 17:01, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
I would quote as much as is needed to make the point and then leave the cite. In some cases this means I quote a bit more than I'd normally have to, but I have to assume that not everyone will have access. I use cites in two ways: substantiate the fact and also inform. If the cite offers limited access or if it looks unreliable (ex: most LJ cites) I use WebCite to take a snapshot for a backup or I quote extensively. --Morgandawn 18:48, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Since this sounds like the entire quote is represented, then I'm going to leave it as it stands. --Mrs. Potato Head 20:07, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

I changed the link on the second cite to the one provided on the new google groups page. It loads for me signed out of my google account, but I'm not sure if that's just because of browser caching, can someone try it out pleas?--facetofcathy 01:02, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

When I click on the link, it asks for me to sign in with a password. I don't have any accounts, google and otherwise... --Mrs. Potato Head 01:08, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, so it was just showing for me as cached content. Webcite can't handle the page either.--facetofcathy 01:40, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
