Almost surprised to find this many replies to a question on newsgroups!
Haven't heard of anyone posting asking about that in a long time.
Would've never guessed anyone still even used newsgroups. Been a LONG time since I have.
I still use them, and will continue to use them until the last NNTP server on the Internet shuts down. Preferred over web-based forums when I have a choice. I use 40tude Dialog instead of Google Groups:
40tude Dialog w/ NNTP service.
Although I don't use NNTP for piracy, it seems much preferred over filesharing protocols such as BitTorrent. There is even an active DSLR forum:
