There are free text-only news providers out there, and low-cost 
subscription ones.  Just because one ISP drops news servers it shouldn't 
be a problem for anyone.

BTW: I consider this a Usenet newsgroup, with an add-on mailing list, but 
that's probably just because it's how I started.  Is there any reason why 
NNTP per-se should mangle non-ASCII characters?  I always write ASCII "u" 
rather than the Greek "mu", but that's mainly laziness!
