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!
