Additional info on news.myplugbox.com
Somewhat/Slightly similar to the eternal-september server, there are
(also) other groups available on that server which require user/pass.
That is, e-s allows no login connection and posting, but that only
accesses the e-s groups. In order to get the general usenet groups on
e-s, one must be reg'd and authenticate.
myplugbox also has additional groups which are not accessible absent the
authentication. There doesn't (to me, yet) appear to be any
published/posted guidelines for the moderation communication setup. I
know/hear of the pizzazz and zep groups requiring auth.
Several years ago the moderator Allie could be contacted at asage19 <at>
yahoo.com and one chooses their own user/pass. Another moderator back
then 2013 was Annette apol1 <at> comcast.net
Since that contact information is so old, one might be better to
communicate/post in the group server.news and let someone forward your
news message to the moderator.
There are also other news servers which allow read-only
non-authenticated but require auth credentials to post.
