This is a bit OT, but maybe some of you FreeBSD folks are as well
affected like me and/or have any answer or comments...

In the past I've used a lot the so called newsgroups, even running my own inn
news server for our company and nn as the newsreader. I liked to post
there technical (and other) questions and answers, or I've google'ed for

Nowadays there is a big silence :-(
Where have all the people gone? Is USENET coming to its end?
