[Most recent change: 3 December 1985 by spaf]

The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
16 December 1985.  There are two basic subcategories of netwide
newsgroups: "net" and "mod".

"net" groups consist of USENET bulletin-board newsgroups that are
(usually) circulated around the entire USENET -- this implies
world-wide distribution.  Not all "net" groups actually enjoy such wide
distribution, however.  The European Usenet sites (Eunet) take only a
selected subset of the more "technical" groups, and controversial
"noise" groups are often not carried by many sites in the US and Canada.

"mod" groups are moderated or are monitored mailing lists.  They can
only be posted to by mailing submissions to the coordinator (provided
in a companion posting).  Some of the "mod" groups are gatewayed to
USENET from the ARPA Internet and appear as "mod" groups to facilitate
distribution and posting from the Usenet.

Some of the "net" groups are bidirectionally gatewayed with
ARPA Internet mailing lists; 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 mailing list.  Most such gatewayed groups are done as "mod"
groups.  A complete list of moderated newsgroups, submission addresses
and moderators is given in a companion posting.

The following "net" groups have been gatewayed with the listed
Arpa Internet lists.  Some of them may not still be gatewayed due to
broken software and/or gateways; such groups are marked with an
asterisk ("*") in the list below.  Please contact me if you should know
of their current status.  Also note that the group "net.lang.forth" is
gatewayed with the Bitnet discussion list "umfo...@weizmann.bitnet".

	Usenet Group		Arpa Internet list
	------------		----------------

There are groups in other subcategories, but they are local: to
institutions, to geographic regions, etc. and they are not listed
here.  Note that these distribution categories can be used to restrict
the propagation of news articles.  Currently, distributions include:
	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.

Please notify me of any errors or additions to the list below.
