[Most recent change: 29 November 1984 by spaf]

The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
15 December 1984.  There are three basic subcategories of netwide
newsgroups: "net.*", "fa.*", and "mod.*".

"net.*" consists of USENET bulletin board newsgroups that are
circulated around the entire net.

"fa.*" is a set of groups that are gatewayed to USENET from the
ARPANET.  The "fa.*" groups consist mainly of digests, though there are
some bulletin boards.  To post to "fa.*" groups, send mail back along
the return address found in the "From" line of the articles.

Some of the "net.*" and "fa.*" 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.

"mod.*" groups are moderated.  They can only be posted to by mailing to
the moderator (provided in a companion posting).

There are other subcategories, but they are local: to institutions, to
geographic regions, etc. and they are not listed here.  Please report
any corrections, additions, etc. to this list to me.

Note that there are distribution categories which can be used to
restrict the propagation of news articles.  Currently, distributions
	net		worldwide distribution (default)
	att		limited to AT&T
	can		limited to Canada
	eunet		limited to European sites
	na		limited to North America
	usa		limited to the United States
There may be other regional and local distribution categories available
at your site.  Most US states have distribution categories named after
the two letter abbreviation for that state or category (e.g., "ga" for
Georgia, "nj" for New Jersey). Please use an appropriate distribution
category if your article is not likely to be of interest to USENET
readers worldwide.

A good example of a restricted distribution newsgroup is ""
which exists for users to post "item for sale" notices.  It only
exists in the "na" (North American) category.
