[Haskell-cafe] Maintaining the community

Perhaps I haven't found the amazing treasure trove of open NNTP servers
you appear to have, but in my experience I've yet to find a single good
(read: access to most groups and quick about it) and free NNTP server
(read: not from my ISP, employer, or university - which, if provided at
all, have always been quite limited in which groups they serve), so I
can completely understand where the others are coming from in this
regard.  Perhaps those of you who have found good, free NNTP servers
would care to share these well kept secrets?

Really? Most web servers will accept a connection from anybody. (Unless
it's *intended* to be an Intranet.) I'm not quite sure why somebody
would configure their NNTP server differently...
