    I apologize if this is not the right newsgroup, but,

    My Microsoft Excel community newsgroup is blank ( no messages showing). I
    never noticed it before, but on the menu bar, it indicated click here to
    install silverlight. I thought that was something new, so did it, but it
    didn't help. Newsgroup is still not shwoing any messages.

    Here's the link.

    They are no more.

    Newsgroups removed as of June 1, 2010

    You can still access the groups on some non-MS servers such as Eternal
    September, but how long the quality of questions and replies lasts is
    unknown.
