Perhaps it is time to get used to Forums.  Mozilla have very good
and Microsoft also have many good forums.  Newsgroups are good for
trolling but there is a limit how much time you can spend doing that!!

Is there anything particular you wanted to ask or that you normally
ask?  Windows, Linux, or Mozilla?  They are all running forums these
days and Newsgroups are closing down almost daily because demand for
them has declined.

Followup-To: Mozilla.General

This is very much a OT as far as I can see.

Thanks to all who replied.

I'm not sure why this came to this group, I originally posted to the
Thnderbird group.

"Good Guy" has strong too narrow views as to what is "ON TOPIC" for
groups he reads. HE set "Followup-To: Mozilla.General".

You however, as a Thunderbird user, had potential/current problems
using Thunderbird to access desired content asked a reasonable
question on a logically chosen list.

I, a SeaMonkey user, sees value in this thread's content being on this
list as it affects both Thunderbird *and* SeaMonkey users.

If by "Forums" he means those ~$@%%% web pages where discussions can
not be conveniently followed nor provide means to tag valuable posts
for later reading, they are useless.

Actually, he doesn't have a Thunderbird problem.

The question was about what news servers are available as a replacement
now that his provider is dropping their service.
