Hi Luke
Yes, long live the newsgroups, but I wouldn't start celebrating yet.
Microsoft is notorious for doing things when and where they want.

It looks like some groups are getting new posts and others aren't.

No one controls a given unmoderated newsgroup.

As I've said multiple times, Microsoft may withdraw its participation
in these newsgroups, but it lacks the power to terminate them.

I don't deny that they said it, but I deny that it's true. Microsoft
has no more power to "close [a] newsgroup" than have you or I.

Indeed Microsoft cannot terminate a newsgroup and even if they could anyone
could introduce their own Excel newsgroup, however Microsoft could withdraw
the free access to these newsgroups through their server. I personally have
no Newsgroup access through my ISP and so rely on the Microsoft portal.
