I've just moved to it after finally giving up on AOL's crap usenet service
which stopped working properly before Xmas and still isn't right. Also AOL
was missing so many newsgroups, like uk.legal.moderated which has been
running for a year and still not on their feed.
Anyway, back to N.I.N. Jolly nice of them to run it all for free and no
problems so far. The posts I make appear in the forums very quickly so no
obvious delays there. Also, despite their site saying you can't post to
moderated groups I tried it and it worked fine on uk.legal.moderated.

Using a valid address for the "reply to" and a permissible invalid
"from" and "sender" addresses is reasonably safe and also kinder to
humans who might wish to send a genuine reply. Most "trawler bots" go
for the "from" do not look at either of the other two.
I use the University Of Berlin servers, news.individual,net.
They are an excellent service and (currently) on free subscription.
The only downside is the apparent unavailability at the weekends
sometimes, varying from Fri Sat and Sun - the times when you
most want to use it.
I find using OE that my postings appear in the NG quicker than I
can get back to the NG from "Send Mail"
