They're already winding down, limiting posts to about 5/ hour. That's one way to reduce spam. People who won't miss google are the reason google has decided usenet is not worth pursuing.

nah, google gives up on usenet because it doesn't make them any money

I have read George Soros book 'The Alchemy of finance',
Politics.

That was after I did a training in financial markets and option trade here
and wondered why the teachers were not very rich.
https://www.amazon.com/Alchemy-Finance-George-Soros/dp/0471445495
Long ago (year 1998 or so):
https://panteltje.nl/panteltje/financial/index.html
later got an email from some students if they could use my code as starting point..
OK,
well after that 'puters took control...
I am sure you can AI make predictions after training it on past events,
basically what I do.
But read Soros's book.

Of course that's a pretty coarse insult, and Darius the Dumb has already called you an arsehole in the thread and and the rest of us idiots, so you've probably picked the wrong contenders. But I am looking forward to an "electronics" post from you - you mostly post snide suggestions that other people should post something about electronics (so that you can pirate it?).

All the free providers seem gone, but I'm reasonably happy with www.newshosting.com Works fine with thunderbird, but you have to use their free newsreading program if you want more search capability than thunderbird provides. Searches are definitely oriented towards binaries but text groups work ok.
