Newsgroups are a collection of messages posted by individuals to a "News Server". News servers are computers maintained by companies, groups, and individuals, and can host thousands of newsgroups.
You can find newsgroups on practically any subject. Although some newsgroups are monitored, most are not, and messages can be "posted" and read by anyone who has access to that group. There are no newsgroup membership lists
or joining fees.
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) must have a link to a news server for you to set up an account with that news server in your newsgroup program (such as MS Internet News or MS Outlook Express). After you set up an account,
you can read and post messages on any of the newsgroups stored on that news server.
When you find a newsgroup you like, you can "subscribe" to it so that it is displayed in your newsgroup's program folder list. Then you don't have to scroll through the long list of newsgroups on the server to find what you want.
There are two newsgroups dedicated to the Louise, both are very popular and can be a valuable source for the latest gossip and information, they are as follows.
If you do not have these newsgroups on your ISP's newsgroup list, you can always receive and post messages via DejaNews.
