The best way to access newsgroups is either through your local newsreader
application, or at the Google Groups
Web site. With the demise of DejaNews, Google
now offers the complete 20-year Usenet Archive, as well as a convenient Web interface
for reading and posting comments in various Usenet discussion forums (aka newsgroups).
Frequently Asked Questions for individual newsgroups are usually posted on a regular
basis to the newsgroups themselves, while most can also be found in the
Internet FAQ Archives.
