  The problem is that it's a bitch and a half trying to get a
newsgroup up and running nowadays.  We've found that with the current
crop of users if they're not already on usenet, they're unlikely to
move there.  Sad, but true.

  Unless there's a strong proponant team and a bunch of people willing
to bug their sites to put the group on their server, the group fails.
