I would think people who post on Usenet would know how to use the Capslock
key, but there you go......

If that were true, the Road Runner discussion group users wouldn't
be packing their bags. You might want to check again. Apparently
it's more than a rumor.

Here is the announcement from the RR website (you have to select your
city/state/etc. after clicking on the link):

http://help.rr.com/HMSFaqs/e_newsgro...rmination.aspx
I cannot access Road Runner Newsgroups or download articles?
As of June 23, 2008, Road Runner will no longer offer Newsgroups, however
users can subscribe on their own to third party News providers.


Why is Road Runner discontinuing their own Newsgroups service?
Due to low subscriber usage Road Runner has decided to discontinue
Newsgroups service as of June 23, 2008.


If I still want a news service, what can I do?
Subscribers can choose to use a third party service and purchase on their
own through that service. There are many providers with offerings, as an
example here are several providers:

Easynews
Newshosting
UsenetServer


When is the last day that Road Runner Newsgroups service will be available?
Newsgroups service will cease on June 23, 2008.

The ISP's would definitely like to shut down UseNet. Yahoo has pointed
the way. It is more profitable to disseminate content through special
interest groups lined with paid advertising than getting virtually zero
from giving bandwidth to offering a newsgroup. Moreover, such discussion
groups only propagate more mailing lists that can be sold.

So, TWC is more enlightened than Verizon and the other traditional ISP's?
Maybe...and maybe not. TWC has more at stake than having an ISP capability.

Not to mention his info is absolutely incorrect. Time-Warner is
dropping the entire alt.* hierarchy (which includes THIS group
by the way).

Sorry, that's Verizon. Time-Warner is dropping *all* of Usenet.
