Where have you been? This was on Comcast's web site about two weeks ago.

Can anyone reccommend a free newsgroup

Start by looking in the appropriate newsgroup - alt.online-service.comcast.
This topic has been discussed quite a bit with a number of suggestions for
other NNTP services.

Spam source; some servers block its stuff. And not as reliable as others.

Albasani http://albasani.net/index.html.en


Good pick.

Motzarella http://motzarella.org/


Excellent pick.

Not that many of us Comcasters hang out on their site. It was news to me
as to the exact timing; it's been in the cards for years.

Agreed this is not exactly a photo discussion. There's a nice list
posted by Mr. Romano.

The only time I see Comcast's website is when I log on to make a payment.
And I don't spend any more time on their lousy home page than necessary.
(Could they manage to squeeze in ANY more advertisements?)

I just today received an email notification from Comcast that they were
dropping newsgroups. I've known for quite some time, only because I read
about this ON a newsgroup, but I got my o-fficial notice today.
