    Actually, Microsoft is quite tolerant of ignorant points of view. You
    really should try looking at what is posted there.

    What about these........

    'Newsgroups run on an outdated and discontinued platform that is
    no longer supported'.

    'Forums are also moderated by Microsoft to ensure content is
    accurate and to encourage richer conversations.'

    Microsoft will close the newsgroups but like everything on this
    planet, there is always a way to do the same thing in the same
    way. For example, I am able to read forums in my Mozilla
    newsreader (but you can use anything like OE, WLM or anything you
    may think of). The only thing you need is NNTP Bridge from your
    tried and tested source - MICROSOFT. The link is here:

    <http://connect.microsoft.com/MicrosoftForums/content/content.aspx?ContentID=13820>

    Microsoft likes using connectors for almost everything these days
    - Outlook Connector, NNTP Connector, next you will get Office
    Connector and SQL Server Connector! It is all about connectors
    connectors and more connectors

    Q: How is Microsoft closing newsgroups in phases?

    A: Microsoft is posting notices in newsgroups that will be closed well in
    advance of closure dates. We will begin with newsgroups with the least
    active number of users and posts, and by mid-2010, will move to more active
    newsgroups that have a higher volume of posts and users.

    Copied from post by nntp@microsoft.com in the public.test.here newsgroup

    <snip>

    Date 5/4/2010
    Starting in early summer 2010, Microsoft will begin progressively closing down the
    Microsoft public newsgroups to enrich conversations in the rapidly-growing forum
    platform. This decision is in response to worldwide market trends and evolving
    customer needs.

    Microsoft continues to invest in forums to reduce customer effort, consolidate
    community venues and make it easier for active contributors to retain their
    influence. Forums provide a healthy community environment with less spam and make
    answers easier to find by customers and search engines. Additionally, forums offer
    a better user and off-topic management platform that will improve customer
    satisfaction by facilitating discussions in a clean space.

    We understand that some newsgroups are still active, and important to the community.
    In the coming days and weeks, we will be rolling out tools and resources to minimize
    disruption to the community discussions.

    We are working diligently on providing additional resources and information in local
    languages later this week. In the meantime, please refer to the official Microsoft
    Newsgroup website http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/default.mspx
    concerning this issue. The Microsoft Newsgroup website will be made available in
    additional languages in the next few days.

    Microsoft wants a medium in which it can censor and control. Sign of
    the times. News groups will live on despite the Microsofts. In fact, I
    am aware of one sizable effort to assure that they remain open as people
    are also sick and tired of ego maniac private boards for the same
    reason. Appease the master or get censored.

    I am sure this will just move to an alt or comp tree. No big.
    Thunderbird works on MS-Windows and without MS-Windows....and has far f
    ewer bugs than the Live and other junk, espcially with gmail and other
    imap/pop3 bases.

    Just one less reason to use MS-Windows.

    "No longer supported" by M$ of course, which has their collective head up
    their asses to think that the NNTP protocol is a particular "platform". The
    world-wide distributed NNTP servers include every possible OS platform
    imaginable.
