    Where a lot of groups have gone, and the rest will be following.

    This is the list of newsgroups that were closed in the first wave.

    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.

    It didn't go anywhere. It's just no longer available on the ms news server.

    Try http://www.eternal-september.org/

    Thanks for the info. I get the impression these new groups are more for
    techie's than the home users.

    They are fine for the casual user that needs to ask a question now and
    then. For us that work them, it is much more time consuming. The one big
    plus is that trolls and spammers are quickly dealt with.

    There is a tool to make them appear as a newsgroup. It is not the best
    option for posting, but you can view the messages as you do now.
