Note: this is a usenet group, not a "Google" group. Google Groups is just a
NNTP UI (and not really a very good one, from some points of view).
There are any number of still surviving NNTP services out there. Google Groups
is only one (free) NNTP service provider (and hardly the best). There are many
others, some free, some paid. There are (still) a selection of NNTP reader
applications available as well.
