Well you could do worse than use the gmane.comp.python.general newsgroup
if you want to use an NNTP newsreader. I recently left the ISP who had
provided me with news services for years, and I am very happy with the
gmane service (though heaven only knows why they chose to use a name
other than comp.lang.python for the group: perhaps they were only aware
of the list it gateways when they established the service).
Anyway, ther price is certainly right.
