The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
15 December, 1983. There are two basic subcategories of netwide
newsgroups: net.all and fa.all. net.all consists of USENET
bulletin board newsgroups that are circulated around the entire
net; fa.all is a set of groups that are gatewayed to USENET
from the ARPANET. The fa.all groups consist of mainly digests,
though there are some bulletin boards. Some of the net.all and
fa.all groups are gatewayed between the networks, i.e. items
submitted from the ARPA side to the digest are split up and
submitted to the USENET group, while articles submitted on the
USENET side are bundled up and submitted to the digest. To post to
fa.all groups, send mail back along the return address found
in the From line of the articles. There are other subcategories,
but they are local, local to institutions, local to geographic
regions, etc. and are not listed here. Please report any
corrections, additions, etc. to this list to me.
