Chapter 12. Newsgroup Essentials

Usenet newsgroups contain collections of messages from people who share an interest in a topic, such as games, celebrities, or investing. Many news servers carry messages (called articles or posts) from thousands of newsgroups (Figure 12.1). Other news servers, such as those of major software companies like Microsoft, may contain only a handful or a few dozen newsgroups—each dedicated to a topic that's relevant to the company and its products.

Figure 12.1. The Microsoft news server manages newsgroups related to Microsoft products.
