I just used Calliope to find out that "Exetel does not provide News Group services".

Feel free to delete this thread...

Newsgroups have dwindled in popularity in their original form. I think they are mainly used as an alternative to P2P now days in the form of binary transfers, this would also account for the reason most ISP's have dumped it as a service because of the volume of traffic these binary transfers generate.

I gave up on Newsgroups a few years ago mainly because of the flame wars generated by anonymous posters to guttless to identify themselves.
The views I present are that of my own and NOT of any organisation I may belong to.
