This following message was posted on the Newsgroup service on 16/3/2013, advising of the closure.
 

The BigPond Newsgroup service will be exited on 16 April 2013 and after this date the service will no longer be available.  

 

Please ensure that you copy your content from your Newsgroup before 16 April 2013 if you wish to retain a copy of it.  We invite Newsgroup customers to join the BigPond News community to continue sharing your stories and opinions.

Re: Newsgroup settings

But these aren't Newsgroups at all! Completely inappropriate for group users and unusable.

Re: Newsgroup settings

And as of now I am looking for an ISP that supports newsgroups, and will change as soon as I can.

 

NG's have proven invaluable over many years in assisting me with help and information.

 

Very sad.
