"alt" is a collection of newsgroups that is being distributed by a
collection of sites that choose to carry the groups.  Many Usenet
sites do not receive these groups.  Here is a recent list of many
active "alt" newsgroups.  It represents a view of the altnet as seen
by UUNET.  It does not include groups which have names that are not
valid by the standard defined in RFC 1036bis (available in

Another view can be found in a set of articles posted periodically by
Bruce Becker as <> to alt.config, alt.newgroup,
alt.answers, news.admin.misc, and news.groups, called ``Another
listing of newsgroups in the "alt" hierarchy.''  That list seems to
include every alt group he has ever seen, many of which have never had
a correct and widely distributed creation message or do not get any
continuing article traffic.

You can join the "alt subnet" by finding a site in your area that
carries the groups.  Either send mail to the administrators of the
sites you connect to, or post something to a local "general" or
"wanted" newsgroup for your area.  If no sites nearby are getting
them, you can get them from uunet or psi.

Submissions to the moderated alt groups should be made to the
addresses listed in the companion posting of moderator addresses.  If
it does not include an address for one of these groups, it is probably
because the person who established the group as moderated did not make
sure that the addresses were properly installed.  Submission addresses
for moderated groups should be sent to
