Ah, fascinating, there must be an entire world of NNTP servers out there
I've never come across :-)  My previous employer had an internal NNTP server
running, which was a virtual gold mine of knowledge and insight.  It was a
largely unknown gold mine at that.

Anyway, I know there are several locations where I can host a mailing list
(google groups, yahoo etc), are there similar free services that offer free
NNTP services?

Ah, that's very useful to know.
