It is all because MVPs are abusing microsoft customers on newsgroups so
it has been decided to make it all forum based so that MSFT can take
control of the events. MVPs are bunch of loonies and Obama has decided
to call it an EMERGENCY because they were spreading swine flue or H1N1.
MVP stands for Most Valuable Pig though there is nothing valuable in them.

How come you didn't know that it is possible to read forums using NNTP
(or newsgroups as you call it)? Haven't you heard of something called
"Forums NNTP Bridge" Now you call yourself MVP but you didn't know this?
Instructions are here:
Now this should keep you busy for sometime at your tender age of 78.

Flaky Windows 7 web-based forums:
microsoft.public.it.windows7 <-- available at msnews.microsoft.com
No signs of "microsoft.public.windows7.general" so far.
(Dear Microsoft... Oh, never mind... :)
