Please note that on or around July 15, 2009, AT&T will no longer be

reading Usenet newsgroups, access is available through third-party vendors.

Thank you very much for the heads-up. Being a new AT&T user, I learned about this when I first set up my newsreader (Thunderbird, for which you give no instructions online) for your NNTP server, but there are tens of thousands of AT&T users, I'm sure, who are unaware of your plans and will either be shut off abruptly, or will never know of the existence of Usenet.

Usenet is so important that I'm sure it will never die, but it may be a long time before it becomes very popular.
