However, the mail volume can become increasingly large and your mail-box becomes clogged when you are subscribed to a number of these toys.

You only need a newsreader and server and you can subscribe to thousands of lists and read a zillion contributions each day. Most of the discussions are informal, especially the sports oriented ones. The newsgroups you can access depends also on the Usenet server which supports your ISP, e.g. not all nl.* groups can be read in Japan (I doubt if any). The idea is that if you find an interesting newsgroup, via DejaNews for instance, you ask your ISP to put it on the server.
