Q:   I am unable to access certain groups via the web to news gateway, why?

A: As it is stated in our disclaimer, some groups are only accessible via a newsreader.

If you do encounter any questionable material that somebody, posted please let us know so that we may remove the offending article.

Q: Some newsgroups seems to be expiring very quickly, why?

Q:  Why are there articles missing in the binaries newsgroups?

A: This can happen for several reasons. The most likely is that some of the articles (or parts of articles) were filtered out as spam before they reached our servers. We do not filter any incoming articles on our binaries servers, everything we receive from our upstream is posted. Many news servers limit the maximum article size and if any articles are in excess of that size the server will cancel it automatically and it will not propagate out. Also, all news servers have the right to filter out anything that passes through their server. Keep in mind that Usenet was designed to carry only plain text, not large binary files. Processing binary articles places twice as much strain on the server as plain text articles do. For these reasons no guarantee regarding completeness of binary articles is expressed or implied by

Q:  Some articles that I post from do not seem to propagate to other news servers, why?

A: This is rare, but possibly another news server may be canceling them . We can take no further responsibility for articles not propagating once they have been sent to our upstream servers. Another reason could be if you have a record of abuse on our servers your posting access may have been disabled. Once your posting access has been disabled due to posting abuse it will never be restored, so don’t even ask. Nor will we issue refunds for this reason.
