If you have newsgroup access just do a search for alt.binaries.fonts in your newsreader.

Why are you so surprised to see sinners in church? Are you shocked to see sick people in a hospital too?

Since its an alt.binaries.* group, free usenet providers likely will not carry it. You'll likely need to use a paid provider. TweakNews has a 10 day absolutely free trial (no CC needed). Giganews and other US-based providers also offer free trials, but I believe they ask for a CC up front and require you to cancel before they bill you and convert to a paid subscription.

As an alternative, you might also try comp.fonts. That should be available any most free and paid usenet providers. When asking your question, I'd just link to a image hosted at imageshack, imgur, etc.

Newsgroup access is a little different than "Internet" access in that it is NNTP rather than HTTP. It's something your ISP may provide for free although that is becoming rare. Otherwise there are paid providers as cdru See Profile mentioned.

edit to add: I checked the posts @ comp.fonts and recognize a number of the poster names so that was a good suggestion.
