Internet Newsgroups

Newsgroups and discussion groups are groups of people with similar interests sharing opinions, information and ideas. They can be very useful in gathering information and for support from others in similar situations. Beware of the SPAMS and marketing messages that can be annoying in these groups. It is important to be selective in what you read
