I think it's just changing audiences. A common means of
USENET today seems to be binary groups for sharing warez.
There are few newsgroups considered "old-fashioned",
"greybeard" and "elitist" grounds. The common means of
communication probably has moved to other services,
generic ones such as mailing lists, and more "service-
oriented" ones like the many web-based platforms.
