  One common problem is a lack of access to certain newsgroups.
    This is particularly true of the biz.marketplace groups,
    because some sites do not carry the Biznet hierarchy.  Your
    first action should be to ask your system administrator why
    she doesn't carry a particular group or set of groups.
    Often, just expressing an interest will be enough to convince
    her to subscribe.  Or, you may find out that your site
    doesn't permit commercial use of the news facilities, in
    which case you should not try to circumvent local policy.

  However, if you have a dying urge to post to or read a specific
    group which your site does not carry, there are several free
    ways to receive those groups.  These can be particularly
    useful if you live in Kazakhstan and your only news access is
    through Gopher and e-mail (a true story).  For posting, a
    simple e-mail message to the right address will post your
    article.  For reading, a number of open news servers and
    gopher news services are available for your perusal.  But
    please, first talk to your local source for help to find out
    how to read and post news from your local server.

  In many cases, the only reason certain newsgroups are not
    carried is because of a lack of storage space.  In this
    instance, please read Bob Rankin's "Accessing the Internet
    by E-Mail FAQ" in news.answers.
