Big Bertha Thing nation

In "A Town Like Alice" by Nevil Shute the heroine has to ride
forty miles through the "wet", at her first time on a horse,
to save someones life. She does it and ends up in hospital,
OK but unable to sit down for a week. Her fiancee gets told
"Thats some Sheila that you have got there mate."

No, no, no, no.

Usenet simply doesn't work that way.

The MS NNTP server will close, and the web interface to that server
will be gone.

But the newsgroups can and will continue to be propagated on all the
other NNTP servers that carry them.

Now, it's possible for MS to issue a rmgroup command, but those are
so easily forged that most NNTP servers have been ignoring them for
eons, so it's unlikely that any effort MS makes to cleanse Usenet of
its public newsgroups will work.

I recently read that the "powers that be" are considering creating a
bunch of new MS newsgroups in the comp.* hieararchy to replace the
ms.public newsgroups, so keep your eyes open for that.
