Newsgroups

One of the popular features of the Internet is newsgroups, which are groups of people around the world who have common interests, such as rugby, pet cheetahs, leukemia, pregnancy, hair salons, gay children, Robert Burns, Judaism, various eras of history, collections of all sorts, etc. There are about 30,000 different newsgroups. People in each group "post" their news or questions or comments on the Internet, which is kind of like pinning messages on a bulletin board, and everyone in the group can read them and post their own answers, comments, or questions at any time. It's a wonderful resource.

Some newsgroups are intended for discussion, and some for announcements and queries. Some groups are moderated, where someone reads the postings and perhaps censures messages before posting them.
